Well, the article is very interesting & I share these sentiments about what defines a good leader. But I feel the author is trying to be politically correct when mentioning Ghandi. Being an African and Zulu, I feel bitter when people compromise truth about the Ghandi we know.
For instance it was Ghandi who said Zulu cultures were barbaric. The truth remains, Gandhi was so loyal to British imperialism. He bitterly challenged the imperialist authorities not to put his race at par with the uncivilised Zulu Kaffirs.

Remember that with the increase in renewal energy alternatives, oil may in the long run become obsolete. So maximize its returns while you still can. That, however, is not the core of my take in the subject. Why was it so attractive to invade Iraq and now the sable-rattling on Iran? Who knows, this line may lead us to the chain of reasonings that finally explain the rise in oil prices.
