Tuesday’s Piece

“Be unjust, and you hand to nationalism a creed and a cause worth dying for: be just, and you deprive it of ammunition, and you destroy it. Justice is the foundation upon which the greatness of our nation must be established; for without it, you can satisfy the greed, but you can never win the hearts of men – and the greatness of a nation lies, in the last analysis, in the hearts of its people.”

(From ‘Rhodesia Acuses’ by A.J.A. Peck)

John Lentell
