    • I don’t know the context either. Maybe he means that the more mature you are, the less guidance you need from others. But if this quote is misguided, then that means he has a leader anyway, who is guiding him in the wrong direction.

  1. A neighbor of mine used to have a t-shirt with this slogan: “Laws are for when brains run out.” Meaning, I think, that if we all used our brains in a considerate and sensible fashion, a lot fewer laws would be needed. That said, good leaders are necessary to get us all in step, making progress toward worthy common goals. Bad leaders, however, are worse than none at all. Maybe the key word in Abbey’s statement is “grown” in the sense of being “mature.” Immature, selfish men need laws and leaders to keep them in line, but that only works if the leaders aren’t immature and selfish. Sorry, Tippy, I’m still trying to figure out where I stand on this. 🙂

    • Maybe you hit it right on the nail, though. The key word is “grown”. I think those with mature brains only need leadership to the extent of coordinating their activities with each other. Beyond that they can, and do, guide themselves.
