What is the balance? [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
By the way, I am sure all leaders labour under this mix of personal, factional, popular (meaning what the people concretely need) and national (in terms) motivations, and nobody under G-d can truly say what really drives them; which is why I try not to be too judgmental - not even against politicians whose actions I disapprove of.


Further aside: Wise words. By now you have probably noticed that I struggle with this issue: to attain an attitude similar to yours regarding people in positions of power and authority (apart from those who inspire me). When it comes to being judgemental, I'm at my worst when talking about leaders I disagree with. I would that I could shake off that tendency because it really is a failing of a sort. Thank you for baring with me.
