Does The Human Species Need Leaders Or Is It Capable Of Self-Governance?

I think this is a very interesting question which has a deep biological aspect to it. The observation of "leaders", or dominant members of the pack, exists across a wide variety of species. What is the basis for it? Does it present an improved chance of survival or is it one of evolution's many random but useless by-products?

I should rule the entire galaxy. Bow before me you insignificant worm.

I am your God now you pitiful peons. I shall be the grand supreme ruler of all the heavens and the earth. Humanity will never make it without my everlasting paradox penetrating wisdom of prolific intelligent emanations from the brain cells of perfection. I will slap you in the face with an angry iguana from jamaica that smoked too much reefer and I will inject Sodium Fluoride into your nipples and ship you to afghanistan wearing nothing but a suit of chain mail made of bacon strips.

As the gap between the haves and have not's widens, there is a rush to gain the power to stay on the winning side, rather than work for more equality. We WERE capable of self governance a few years ago (when America was great), but it's turned into a race of greed and power. I don't think it's coming back. Certainly NOT under the phony MAGA, which is leading U.S. down an authoritarian trail in the guise of "individual freedom" ... which is the opposite of its real intent. (Not just here, but, worldwide)!
