Mahatma Ghandhi: Lessons that Nationalists should learn

Mahatma Ghandhi
"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you.

Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.

If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth." Mahatma Ghandhi

Mahatma Ghandhi led the resistance against British rule in the Indian Subcontinent but there are lessons to be learnt from a man that succeeded as a minority of one. 

When your friends respect you, you expect it because they are your friends. When your enemies respect you, you have achieved greatness.


  1. Are you suggesting Mahatma Ghandhi, nothing more than a terrorist and anti-Brit is some sort of hero we should look up to?
    What's happening to the BNP?

    1. We can learn from those we consider to be our friends and we can learn from those we consider to be our foes. The BNP is learning and learning fast and those who refuse to learn will be forever irrelevant. In actual fact, throughout history, Britain has learnt a lot from careful study of other peoples' strategies and thinking processes. Knowledge is power. Ignorance is weakness. Military strategists learn from one another. Economists learn from one another. As a matter of fact, we have been learning a lot about the methods of rival political parties and organisations. Mental strength and will power are qualities we admire. Your comment somehow shows that you read the article but you did not understand the message it conveys. We are fighting as a minority party and we need strength and determination and this also involves learning from both friend and foe.
