Gandhi is Needed..!

The poster quotes Gandhi:
"Many are after the Power, Fewer after the Nation"

Gandhi was a Philosopher, who had solely preached for change and morals.. Nehru was the Statesman, who had actually brought the change.. Any Nation has many Gandis, whereas each has his own vision.. with no Governance on what's right and's wrong.. Any Nation needs a Statesman to bring ideas down to earth, practices and implementations..

Very few of our frustrated enthusiastic people who understands the demise between Philosophers and Statesmen.. Unless we do, we shall continue to pay and bear the heavy cost of political maturity..

Mohd Fudzail: all are known now as politicians.....

You mean..
A politician, political leader, or political figure (from Greek "polis") is someone who is involved in influencing public policy and decision making. This includes people who hold decision-making positions in government, and people who seek those positions, whether by means of election, coup d'état, appointment, electoral fraud, conquest, divine right, or other means. Politics is not limited to governance through public office. Political offices may also be held in corporations, and other entities that are governed by self-defined political processes.

Imad Kayyali: I believe that "WE" need some of "Gandhi"s. There isn't any since a while.

My pooint that "Philosophy" is open for anyone with least qualifications; i.e. Public advocay including Facebook acounts..!!
"Statesmenhood" is ristricted to practical achivers; who are not bored with filling processing templates, reading analysis reports, developing KPI's graphs or conduct Board reporting..!!

Therefore; we have lots of Philosophers, fewer Statesmen..
BTW; it is almost the other way around at the Western Hemisphere.. Many Statesmen, fewer Philosophers.. Therefore, they had landed on the moon 50 years ago..!!
I guess "Talking Guage" is the true demise between East & West..!!
Imad Kayyali: I think what we have is quasi philosophers but not real figures that are capable to do real change. they are pretty of more of rhetoric writers than philosophers.
Philosophy is by default controversial..!!
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom".

Imad Kayyali: I don't disagree with the definition, I am pointing at who really deserves the title. Who in fact would influence politicians and people, who would put the vision for a change, and who provides the framework for the people and politicians at same time. I still don't see that we have any at all. This is clearly comprehended when reading the Arab Spring.

I agree we don't have any Governance Framework.. We almost don't know what does it mean.. Only by governance, we can filter visions and ideas.. Your question is on the Governence: who would set and draw its framework to accept or reject ideas..?

Yes; it is usually combined between Philosopers and Statesmen; as it needs moral foundations as well as practical procedures.. Therefore, usually legislators invite philosophers to attend hearings by Statesmen.. If not practical to attend, Mass Media will facilitate the philosophy reviews and inputs, with an open eye on been taking seriously.. This is how Media is the 4th Estate.. As usual and as always, the Devil is in the details..!!

It is the typical practical story of Government.. Between Philosophies and Deliveries..
Therefore, many persons talk, or "philosophize" things.. Very few can address the practical implementations..
