    Chain of command vs. democratic discussion. Paralysis by analysis vs. active / reaction. Group think can get you in deep doo-doo.

    Hesitation and non ability to decide what action to take is not much of a factor to the adults in my group . If they deem it is time to pull a trigger so be it . Lone Individual night guard is sometimes conducted by my group armed with shotguns . That includes a very mature 16 year old . Folks raised in a populated area and folks raised roaming the woodlands alone gathering food for the family are of two different species .

    LEAD, FOLLOW or get the hell out of the way. The Infantry Creed

    Democracy doesn't work in survival situations. The military uses rank. Tribes use Chiefs or Elders. Humans look to leaders in stressful times and survival (SHTF) is stressful. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    In the end it is about trust, if you can't trust the leader to make a sound judgment then you have the wrong leader or are in the wrong group.
    When a leader screws up they should be the kind of person to own their failure, learn from it and not repeat it. They can not just lash out and blame others for their failings. A true leader must have a broad knowledge and skill set, can also admit that they don't know everything but be able to evaluate what information they do have quickly and objectively before comming to the best decision possible in the circumstances. If you trust someone with these attributes then you have a leader.
