“I wonder how far Moses would have gone if he’d taken a poll in Egypt? What would Jesus Christ have preached if he’d taken a poll in Israel? Where would the Reformation have gone if Martin Luther had taken a poll? It isn’t polls or public opinion of the moment that counts. It’s right and wrong and leadership—men with fortitude, honesty, and a belief in the right that makes epochs in the history of the world.”
This made me want to stand up and fist pump. That and how you pointed out that when leaders reflect a victim mentality, we get a nation of victims. Poignant thoughts and a fantastic article. Glad I’m a member and get to read great think pieces like this!
