The leader as judge

Justice is one of the four classic cardinal virtues – justice, prudence, fortitude, and temperance. These four are called “cardinal” virtues from the Latin word for “hinge”. All other virtues hinge on these four.

The authentic leader is committed to justice. Without justice, he/she has no credibility. As Robert F. Kennedy said, “Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

Never before have we more needed leaders who can orchestrate these ripples of hope.
