    Default people's leader

    Hi there,
    We are people's leaders, not leaders onto themselves.
    what does leaders onto themselves mean? Could you give me an explanation using other words, please?
    Thank you

    If people are a law unto themselves, they are not accountable to anyone. This sentence is a bit unnatural, but a people's leader would be acciountable to the people, unlike someone like a dictator.
