Rise in Defence of Politics – “Make Gentle The Life of This World: The Vision of Robert F. Kennedy” – Maxwell Taylor Kennedy

January 27th, 2012 · No Comments · Democracy, Leadership, Politics

As Pericles said:

“We differ from other states in that we regard the individual who holds himself aloof from public affairs as being useless. Yet we yield to no one in our independence of spirit and complete self-reliance.”
