In any great undertaking, nothing is more important than public opinion. Take a careful look at history. No matter how rightful one's actions may be, nothing can be accomplished without support from the people.
Politics, economics and culture are all undertakings whose ultimate aim is people's happiness. Politics, in particular, directly influences each and every person's daily life. Political leaders must therefore view things in their largest perspective. They must never be blinded by self-interest or personal desires, or allow concern for short-term advantage to be their downfall.
In order to secure people's happiness, politics must be based on a sound and unwavering philosophy and principles.
Philosophy must never be divorced from action. Unless it is put into practice, philosophy is nothing more than an intellectual game.
Young people! You must always keep a strict eye on politicians!
