When he spoke, people listened. Not out of interest, nosome listened out of awe, some out of respect, and some even out of fear, but no none listened out of mere interest. His words were too weighty for someone to simply hear and forget.

The words he spoke were sweetly condemningan outpouring of both love and wrathquietly passionate, subtly offensive, submissively deviant. His words stirred hearts, uprooted families, caused change. People listened.

People followed.

Because people will follow someone if he seems worth following, if he seems to lead to somewhere great, if he gives them purpose. You see, people want to be needed. People want to be a part of something bigger than themselves.

So when someone calls people to join an unattractively attractive revolution, there will be followers.

Just what the revolution accomplishes is up to its leader.
