  • Many years ago I read a study of group dynamics that included a reference to an experiment done with a group of schooling fish to try and determine how and why they seemed to move as one unit. One of the fish was randomly selected and pithed (spinal cord severed, fish not killed), causing it to make random movements and directional changes. The rest of the school followed that fish and were last seen heading out over the continental shelf.

    Whether that was true or not, it makes a good model for political leaders and helps to explain why folks like Bush and Berlusconi (and I'd include Hitler and some other megalomaniacs in that group, behaviorally if not politically) end up leading countries over virtual continental shelves to certain destruction.
