The third instalment of The Leadership of a Bad Brother has the same context and focus with the first two. The random presentation of thoughts is intended to reflect the haphazard manner by which victims of bad organisations and bad leaders order their thoughts privately. Some respondents have questioned where this diary is heading. It is the intention of the author to open up a dialogue with readers on direct personal experiences of being on the receiving end of evil tyranny and wickedness in the name of authority, in any kind of organisation they have belonged to whether it is voluntary (most especially), a work place, a business or a government agency. The participation of the reader in this dialogue can make open that which is hidden and potentially held change things. Not many contributions received so far.

Have you ever heard of Ogbunkor? Ogbunkor is the art of extremely wicked self-defence. Ogbunkor is definitively the use of wicked violence and methods to eliminate oppression and injustice from society as one’s capacity permits. This is no contradiction, for evil and wickedness eventually destroy themselves and the good and just return to take their place. Ogbunkor is a good catalyst for achieving such swiftly with a predictably good outcome; another kind of adding petrol to the bonfire i.e. if it is true that evil and wickedness eventually consume themselves cannibalistically. Strangely, Ogbunkor in present times is only accessible to cripples (the physically disabled), hence I know the art. It is a pity that Ogbunkor is a clandestine art. I think it should be freely available to all in order for society to have a force to perpetually eliminate bad leaders from society wherever they may emerge. I have had a professional bad leader in mind for a long time. Who does not? – 15/07/2016

If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal – Emma Goldman. We always get fooled with elections because of the corruption involved. The most corrupt kind of election is not one where there are more votes counted than registered voters (rigging) or one in which money was given to voters or electoral officials (buying) to determine the outcome desired by those in power. Even when election outcomes are secured through voters fearing to vote contrary to the choice of the powers that be (intimidation) it is not the most corrupt form of election. It is when a free and fair election is cancelled [on false pretexts] because the outcome goes against the interests of status quo, that qualifies as the most corrupt kind of election. When elections are rigged, bought or fearsome they are not elections in the first place. If we look back, we can see how many bad leaders are pole-vaulted into offices of power through the rerun of cancelled elections that they initially lost or the disqualification of candidates that would have clearly beaten the status quo stooge. …is hereby duly elected…how corrupted is this?  – 16/07/2016

The puppeteers {elder statesmen and financiers] of bad leadership are always the backbone of wickedness in any group or society they rule. Puppeteers are routinely “respectable” group members that myths not facts are known about. They thrive on the apocryphal and mass deception which is updated as needed. Men in their sixties and seventies living the lie! But why? Money and power. The puppeteers constitute an untouchable elite that is revered within their respective groups. This reverence is used to further the extortion of money and the subjugation of members. The message of the puppeteer to members is either “things will get better soon”, “let us wait for the man in power to finish his term”, “which Christian do you know that lives his or her life purely according to the Gospel of St Matthew?”, “things have to get worse before they get better”, “£100 per member is a trifling sum” or “your suffering is the kind of sacrifice our organisation needs to grow”. All in all, the puppeteers use meek language and memes to encourage members to never stop suffering and sacrificing while they themselves enjoy untold privileges at no cost. They are worse than the mostly foolhardy bad leaders they use to do their dirty work. Old thieves, old brutes.             – 17/07/2016

The good thing that constantly militates against the existence of bad leadership is that it always lacks legitimacy and will be contested at any opportunity available. There are always Boiss-in-waiting wherever bad leadership rears its head. Political ignorance is the instance(s) of believing that power for its own sake answers all things despite the absence of ethical considerations. Patronage, elections, pork-barrelling, log-rolling, do-gooding, charitable works, draconian laws and high cunning will never make bad leadership legitimate. If anyone wants their leadership to be thoroughly legitimate, it has to be thoroughly good i.e. celebrate the rights, freedom and creativity of the individual. Political ignorance itself is a truly great tragedy or tragedy-bearing phenomenon. – 17/07/2016

Corruption is “the exercise of power in the absence of moral considerations”. At first, it seems an overly moralising definition but it was fashioned overcome the narrow focus of the mainstream definition of corruption especially the ‘governments bad, markets’ enclosure. When we look at corrupt elites and bad leaders it is evident that their corruption knows no bounds. All the powers of ‘those who matter’ are tainted with some sort of corruption, whether it is instances of secretive favour-exchange or outright graft. As for morality we a lucky to have it in society, because if we did not we would be living in a criminal and disobedient anarchy. Those who keep society functioning at its best are those who adhere to moral codes and goal consistent ethical rules, not those leaders and elites who break the rules to serve [conserve] their personal narrow interests. – 18/07/2016

In the “underground”, power loss is totally rejected by holders especially after one has left office. When a bad leader becomes a sworn enemy of another bad leader, it is usually due to one herculean ego disagreeing bloodthirstily with predecessors’ or successors’ or competitors’ plans / interests. The battle arena is excellent for witnessing the considerable potential wickedness and counter-wickedness men are capable of in practice. The painful part is the devastation that visits the lives of the unwitting supporters of either side who were ‘persuaded’ to get involved. Informed supporters know the limits of their support. Deaths, betrayals, smears, sabotage and black-listings proliferate but are carefully hidden from the on-lookers and the public. To be an internal on-looker is also unfortunate because one cannot make sense of the nasty games of the warring sides; express any anger at the wanton senseless “war” witnessed and enduring misery shall follow. Silence in the face of tyranny and wickedness becomes the best strategy for securing personal well-being. Make underground power battles ‘overground’ and they stop.        – 18/07/2016
