The desire for leadership is a pathological disorder which is engendered in others by those who already have succumbed to the malady. Leadership is a delusional belief system in which a human being maintains that he or she should be given (or has the right to usurp) the authority to organize and control the lives of other human beings.

Once the underlying principles of the delusional disorder are appreciated, an individual might be in a better position to realize the character of the pathology of leadership and resist its seductive, Siren-like wail.
