Continuing this post, in this video Thom Hartmann interviews Kshama Sawant, a socialist and member of the Seattle city council who was instrumental in getting the $15 minimum wage passed. At around 3:40 Hartmann discusses how he has always challenged the notion that it takes a great leader to effect social change. He then asks Sawant, a 'leader' of this movement, how that squares with her socialist frame. Her response starting at 5:10 is enlightening and representative of the emerging Commons notion of leadership.
