Leadership is motivating, whereas authority is brainwashing. Leadership serves a cause, authority serves the self. Leadership is altruistic, authority is egoistic; leadership springs from courage, authority from repressed fear. Leadership is self-overcoming; but authority is just self-assertion. Leadership is usurping; authority is stifling. Leadership comes from charisma, authority from imposing, and,while authority is repressive, leadership is inspiring. Authority wants to control, Leadership to excel. Authority is limitation, leadership is mystical.

Why do I love Walt Disney and the Natives? The reasons in common, may be these: they love nature; in their primitivism, they do reach the religious essence; they honor another reality, they see the whole creation permeated with equal life, they identify with animals, they open doors to wonderful worlds.... What else? Disney was reported to not want to make a garden in one of his houses, in order to let nature wild, which he preferred. One more thing: they look at artifice with delight and poetry... Have you seen an Indian at the computer? It's beautiful, he kinds of communes with it, as if diving in the screen, and handles it with respect and familiarity... Like Walt handled technology as well.....

"... we see to it that nothing ever happens that will cure his faith in the transcendent destiny of one Mickey Mouse" and further: " ... the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world wracked human being which makes us play with children's toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, sing in bathtubs and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know... the Mickey in us".
