Warcraft with three blueprints of leadership

After the action-comedy animation, Ninja Turtles sequel, let’s switch our attention to fantasy-action Warcraft. This time, I enjoyed the movie, with the generous vouchers from Major Cineplex by Cellcard, the exclusive cinema for Pram Ang. As my nephew Rain happened to follow this cartoon on mobile before, I made some sense for me to see it with him. I needed to thank the G-rating, which I somehow suspected! As expected, I came out with a few interesting tips about leadership.

Leadership by love – This is probably the most popular style of leadership, exercised by Durotan. He is the leader of an orc clan who fights against the fel magic-corrupted orc Gul’Dan. His main reason fort this fight and quasi-possible alliance with the human army is to protect his kind from perishing of evil wills. His personal reason is his own family, especially his newborn son. If one needs respecting, then, love others as much as they do, just like Durotan!

Leadership by loyalty – Maybe I should call this “followership”. Yet, Anduin seems to be second-in-command, after the King of Azeroth Himself. He dares to do everything to protect Him, even if this latter is killed in the battle with the orcs. The King’s security seems to prevail over his own. This makes sense why all the human forces follow him in turn. Following is not that bad after all, if one knows “what”, not “who”, exactly they follow!

Leadership by power – If one doesn’t know how to love or follow, Gul’dan might be a perfect example of such leadership. He seems to defeat Durotan magically, but not physically or legitimately. Most orcs obey to  him for his dark power and lethal threats. Believe it or not, such human command is also found in Cambodia, where fear has remained engrained in our head and even heart for the last three decades.
