Who makes a better leader: Someone who is loved or someone who is feared? A leader who is feared is a leader that can’t have control over whatever they are in charge of unless those people have fear of them. That shows that, that leader can’t control over the situation unless he shows that he is mean and he is the one who is in charge. The leader who is loved will be respected without been fear. That leader will tell those people, of whom he is in charge of, to do their task and they would most likely do it because they love him and they don’t have to be afraid of him.

The leader who is fear will show that unless they are shown to be with an aggressive attitude and that they have no feelings. That if they show love is a sign of weakness that if they show kindness it might make them lose control over whatever they are in charge of. They might think that if you give the people liberty they will not obey unless you show that you must be a person who must be feared or otherwise you will suffer the consequences. A leader that has showed that he is feared is Hitler. Hitler was in control over many people for a long time. People were scare of him that he might kill them if they didn’t do as they were told. All he showed is that he had control over many people but it was maybe for some of them against their will, and all he showed was hatred towards some people and practically forced them to do things they didn’t want to do. Which at one point people are going to get tired of that leader and tried to get rid of that leader?

A leader who is loved is respected without having the necessity to be an evil maniac with them. When al has to do is just show respect for the others and loved, kindness, all the things that he has probably have done so he can receive love back. And when this leader asks his people to do something they would gladly do it because they love him.
