July in Memphis; more humid than something really humid. There was a nice breeze, but not enough of one. I arrived just as a solo Commie finished his early ruck.

An Effective but un-Virtuous Leader keeps the hard Truth from his followers. He justifies his lack of Candor by couching it as a form of protection. He lies (by misrepresentation or omission) to his followers because (he tells himself) they cannot handle the hard Truth. He convinces himself that the Pain and Disruption of knowing the Truth are Hardships that only he can bear, when the reality is that he lacks the strength of character required to deal with other people’s un-Happiness.
Telling the hard Truth is only one half of Candor. The other half is hearing it. For a Leader to be Virtuous, he must be able to handle the Truth. If he can’t, than no one will be willing to tell it to him. Handling hard Truth well requires the discipline over one’s emotions that comes from Preparedness.
Love having consistent double-digit attendance at the Morg again!
