Peter Block on freedom

…perhaps the real task of leadership is to confront people with their freedom.
…freedom is what creates accountability. Freedom is not an escape from accountability…
…our willingness to care for the well-being of the whole occurs when we are confronted with our freedom, and when we choose to accept and act on that freedom.
