heresthetics
 n.— «Heresthetics. For Riker (1986), leadership, as practiced by successful politicians, is primarily political manipulation. According to this view, leadership is evident when a politician is able to change an issue in the minds of constituents and legislators, so the minority support for older framing of the issue swells to a majority because of the politician’s new interpretation of the issue.» —by Bernard M. Bass Bass and Stogdill’s Handbook of Leadership July 1, 1990. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
