One thought on “Richard John: Power, Kindness, Truth – Podcast 134

  1. I disagree with the speaker’s premise. We don’t always go for ego and agression these days. What about our last President, Barack Obama, whom I consider a great person and perhaps a great President?
    People have been snookered by macho, aggressive egomaniacs not just now, but throughout human history.
