The great man who is humble is widely praised.This line is opposite the previous line.
Great men (or rich men) who consider themselves ordinary people are actually a pleasure to be around.
On the other hand, this recent analysis suggests that corrupt culture flows from corrupt leaders. In some ways it is a variation of the great man theory of history that says that great men are responsible for the changes in history. This is one reason why a great man who considers himself just like every one else should be widely praised.
Steven Law notes that in investigating Enron:
What we found was a small circle of certifiably bad actors who acted without regard for the law or for anyone else. Surrounding this inner circle was a culture that gave these employees tacit permission to run roughshod over others and break the law.This is Onchsheeshonqy's vulgar men puffing themselves up.
While lower-level Enron employees did their jobs honorably, senior management cultivated a malignant esprit de corps that corroded the company's ethics. The C-Suite view was that no one was smarter, faster or more aggressive than these executives. Mortals couldn't possibly understand what they did. That belief created its own closed-system logic, leading to deceptive accounting schemes, self-dealing and, ultimately, a battery of criminal convictions for Enron's top brass.
So the tone gets set at the top and corruption in the top rots out the heart of an organization.
