These are the best of times—and the worst of times—for Independents striving to disrupt and transform our broken politics.
Where can we find them?
The premise–stated or unstated–is that there’s a leadership gap today.
Who can argue against the spectacular failures of leadership in large institutions? They range from the White House and Congress (whether in the hands of the Democrats or Republicans); to Wall Street and back around to Main Street; in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors (including religious institutions); around the world.
It’s easy–perhaps too easy–to find reason for disappointment. And yet… there is also reason for optimism.
It’s often said that these are among the worst of times for leadership… it’s also, arguably, the best of times.

In recent months there has been a lot of public discussion about the relationship of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte. By all accounts, their ten-year marriage has been successful.
Nonetheless, many people have fallen into divided camps, based on their reactions to their respective ages. Brigitte Macron is 64 years old; her husband is 39.
Some have ridiculed the couple for the age difference. Some have praised it as exemplary because the female is older. Few in either camp appear reluctant to pass judgment on a marriage they have little or no knowledge of.
