A modern Diogenes

*

If ever a real, effective and (on the whole) Good leader emerges in the West, I think they will break all the taboos which shackle the mainstream political Right.

They might seem (they might actually be) a bit crazy, unpredictably unpredictable, shockingly rude to those whom they oppose.

They will seem to the ruling elite (and probably will be) relatively unintelligent, simplistic or at least uneducated.

They will not care about their mistakes and will never apologize to their enemies.

They will be un-corruptable because indifferent to comfort, safety and status.

A political equivalent of the Orthodox Holy Fool; a modern Diogenes.
