“And how are you going to achieve power?” the mentor asked the budding politician.
“Love. I will spread the message of love.” said the young leader.
The mentor laughed heartily.
“Why do you laugh?” the young man asked his mentor feeling slighted.
The mentor patted him on the back, “Love does nothing. If you want to lead, bind the people with hate. Nothing brings people together more than hatred that they can feel for something or someone in common.”
The young leader wondered if that was too high a price to pay for power.
