The people and the leaders

The people and the leaders

Our people have survived, without lowering their heads, over the centuries primarily thanks to the unerring orientation given by their own example, their heroes of sword, rifle and pen, starting with Gjergj Kastrioti-Skënderbeu and continuing with Dede Gjo' Lulin, Isa Boletini, Ismail Qemalin, Fan. S. Nolin, Qemal Stafa and many, many others. When heroes change lives, the nation lives through their deaths. They shine in history while the black veil of oblivion is laid over traitors and bandits. The people are governed by laws, not as it pertains to some individuals or parties, and here we mean above all divine laws, not those which are drawn up by men, and which must be dutifully observed by statesmen. The elites of the people should be that category of persons or parties that possess certain qualities, such as honesty and patriotism. Wisdom, knowledge, talent, education, are of no use if the leaders are unscrupulous. A powerful Albania cannot be conceived either by the help of powerful states, nor by the generosity of the IMF, nor by the World Bank or other foreign institutions, but by our sweat, of all of us. Albania cannot become like that if it will have careerists in charge. Immoral individuals, chameleons, demagogues, hypocrites, who have no intention of treating the homeland as market spoils in the name of getting fat, should not be elected to the governing bodies at the center and at the base. The true elite of the nation will be repeatedly defeated and sidelined from politics because they refuse to compete with spineless people. The new state presupposes in the first place the keeping in its bosom of new people, without old sins. A modern political party must be able to lay the foundations of a new Albanian history, where the people see themselves present actively and with real and full rights, which they deserve for the sake of centuries of unparalleled suffering and patience.

Albania's elite should have only one credo: Love for the country. If she will not be greedy for personal wealth, she will not be able to be bought or sold. The lack of respect and gratitude towards the voters is one of the causes of the fading of the good name of many politicians, who, in their activity, often radiate negative attitudes; irritability, strife, shallowness. It is said that every country has the leaders it deserves. This quote, which is sometimes said to belong to Joseph de Maistre, sometimes to Karl Marx and sometimes to Winston Churchill, is similar to another saying: "Tell me who you had as a teacher, and I'll tell you what kind of people you are." And it seems true to us, because the mutual respect between the people and the leader leaves much to be desired. He who undertakes to direct the destiny of millions of people must know that this is not an easy task. From what we have seen over the last three decades, perhaps many things need to be radically changed. Requirement number one: voters must not beg for mercy or alms from officials. On the contrary: the latter should behave as servants of those who gave them the vote and function. Every leader, of all levels, should feel proud to be Albanian, be honest, modest, respect the will of the people. No, after he promised during the election campaign, chickpeas on a skewer, after he sits in the chair of the parliamentarian, minister, mayor or councilor, he starts from scratch by diligently searching for ways and means to get rich without stopping. All of the aforementioned should not forget that the income in money and other favors, which the law recognizes, is more than enough, even more than enough for a very good life. If the voters vote for batakçinj, it means that democracy will have defects. If we have wise leaders, democracy will function normally, for the benefit of the country and the people. Such sons must be chosen by the nation, just like the parent who must raise and educate children who will whiten his face. The great gaps and defects that we encounter at every step probably have their source in the fact that after the 90s of the last century, freedom was conceived not as the right of everyone not to do what they do not want, but as the right of everyone to do whatever you want! This is how we found ourselves in front of an unpleasant moral situation, where values ??were overturned, or as the prominent intellectual O. Goga said a few decades ago: "Our social pyramid is fragile: the top - sick with syphilis, the foundation - with mortar".
