Do our leaders crave praise, money, sex, power?

Huffington Post offers Thomas Moore's views about "The Epicurean Leader": "The Epicurean leader knows how to distinguish valuable rewards from the cheap ones. He or she knows how to let the role of leader create an ever deeper vision, have a serious role in the unfolding of human culture, and enjoy the genuine gratitude of followers."

Moore shares, "I have looked closely at literature on the soul throughout history and have noticed how often the spokespersons for soul were Epicureans and their subject was friendship. Second on their list was pleasure, voluptas, the basis of our word voluptuous. Imagine a serious philosophy of life based on solid, deep-seated, highly ethical pleasure."
