This raises the question for me what is a follower, and are there expectations that apply to that role? Does a declared follower have any obligations? My interpretation is that a follower might offer comments, insights, or an alternative point of view. A follower is not required to do this, of course, but considering the various ways to participate might be helpful to the follower.
I think we are currently going through a crisis in male courage. Assessing our role as followers might be a start to exploring our role as leaders.
