Many leaders in history are discredited just because they had poor morals. I hope that my thesis can bring to light the bias we have against different morals, so that we can see that while some people are horrible people, they can be effective leaders too. In my years of watching elections and seeing accusations flung about ‘bad leaders’ and ‘morally corrupt’ candidates, I have seen the disproportionate weight that people put on a leader’s moral compass. Morals should not be considered when discussing how effective a leader is. The keys to effective leadership are good communication and authenticity.
Along the way he cannot control his temper and this personality flaw leads him to his our destruction. Blinded by ignorance and pride drives him to accuse Creon of trying to overthrow him. Sophocles use the blindness of Tiresias to point out the great power behind wisdom and understand through Oedipus situation. He sends the message that wisdom, knowledge are important aspects of life one should have because without them we are we will forced down a path of suffering and destruction.

However, it is not a proven truth that Grendel is a “cursed” race, or an evil beast. If the reader, like the Danes, labels Grendel as bad, it is because he or she is conditioned to pinpoint certain characteristics and label them as bad. This conditioned thinking does not signify that Grendel, or any other thusly judged creature, is truly wicked. Similarly, as Jared Diamond depicts the Anasazi society and its demise, in his bestselling book Collapse, he explains the controversy that surfaces as people possess different values than
In fact, leadership can even be witnessed among children and young adults. Leaders can be negative influences on others if they display certain toxic behaviors, lack ethics, seek only power, or hold beliefs that are incompatible with our societies.
