The current situation: The concept used for chaotic situations, VUCA [Volatility and acceleration of changes, Uncertainty of information and future, Complexity of interrelation of variables, Ambiguity and little certainty between positions found] is normalized, not only in military or business environment, now is the reality of civilization in general.
The impact: This produces a feeling of loss of CONTROL. We are not clear on

Leaders have a responsibility to build TRUSTED environments for others to to be able to act and prosper. Authoritative or tyrant leadership styles are no longer options.
The latin origin of RESPONSIBLY is Response + ability! How capable are you?
