    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

    Re: people's leader

    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.
