Dear politicians, Tolstoy has something to say about you

Rhetoric, groupthink, agitation, what have you, always remain the best weapons some tongue-in-cheek politicians will do to attract their voters. They’re still useful, yes, but now not so relevant compared to the past. Gradually, people are getting smarter, and you will, indefinite times in the future, long after your flesh and your bones turn into dust, realize nobody will completely remember every single word you ever mutter to us, your subjects. Tolstoy has been wise enough to figure this out a century earlier (albeit the Soviets banned his work later on):


Be afraid to destroy the unity of people by stirring bad feelings amongst them against another with your words. (quoted from A Calendar of Wisdom


That’s it. Get yourself more creatively.
