The paper tells that the world population is in a crucial state of shedding all its national identity and maturing into one global village. What started as small family entities and matured into tribal groups and small kingdoms, got united at a larger level under democracy as nations and continents. Intercultural impacts and massive communication facilities are leading us towards next major evolutionary step in human history, the world citizenship. Every individual involved in this process is required to lead an interconnected group in a subtle way. Hence every citizen of the planet is required to hone their leadership abilities like never before. Their leadership quality should be governed by ethics more than personal or group oriented preferences. But, the way the world works show we are treading in the exact opposite direction. No one ever takes responsibility for any mishap.
Every moral leader is responsible not only for their actions but also the dealings they could have prevented doing for the welfare of everyone. Huge corporate companies and conglomerations which will lead this technological era should have iron-willed leaders capable of choosing the best for both their company as well as the world in general. This is where ethics come is the picture. Every good leader considers all the given options and its alternatives before taking any major decision. They analyze the consequences and the emotional impacts that might affect his crew and others in general. They take firm decisions which are profitable to the company and his employees. They also take the moral responsibility for any discomfort caused by this action. They compensate groups or people affected in the required way and convince them to co-operate in the big picture of development, putting aside their personal grievances. This is exactly how moral leaders behaved for centuries. But the question here is ‘Why is there a sudden decline in such effective leadership?’ Every problem the world faces today, from economic recession too, terrorism and infiltration is a result of this lack of moral leadership.
