Wow Khandi! What a description! You have done a good job with this post. I agree that charisma and persuasion can be used for good or bad. Some of the most eloquent charismatic speakers of our time have been, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. Miya Angelou, President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, President Bill Clinton, numerous political, religious and activists figures. Then there's Hitler. Keep up the good work!
