Yes, I caught on to the Louis Proyect theory of leadership a long time ago:
If people are confused and ambivalent, it is the task of leaders to...
"reflect" their confusion and ambivalence.

"Now dear friends, unto the breach (if it's not too dangerous)"

"Give me liberty, or give me a reasonable alternative!"

"*De la prudence, de la prudence, et encore de la prudence, et la nation
est sauvee."*

*"*There may be nothing to fear but fear itself, but fear itself can
be awful scary!"

"We will fight them on the beaches (weather permitting)"

Let's take stock Sunday night or Monday morning. I hope my prediction is
wrong.
