When I was a teenager, I bought this poster at a shop in a mall near where I lived. It read:

Authority is the power to impose external order on men's lives
That power is only as great as fear or respect makes it
If you obey authority out of fear,
Then you are as culpable for its abuses as if they were your own
But if you obey authority out of respect,
Then you are adding to the peaceful ordering of life itself"

In this, the author of "How One Leads" is correct.
