“Human civilization is the sum of struggling civilization in which the weaker is always conquered by the strong. It is no hope for the weak nations in order to be ahead of future because they are losing it.
Prabowo proposed this statement is a discussion titling LEADERSHIP through DIGDAYA TV in Facebook channel.
This deep thinking comes from Thucydides’ maxim studied in every military school around the world: “The strong will do what they can do; the weak suffer what they must do”. It means that the strong nations will do what they can do to achieve everything else; meanwhile the weak nations will suffers to what they can’t do.
“Governing a state is like governing a family. It is impossible for a family to survive if it counts on debt. Moreover, it will be used for consumptive goods and services. So does a country, it can’t survive if it counts on debt. Prabowo explains thoughtfully.
“For that reason Indonesia must be a strong nation particularly in achieving strong economic ability to achieve prosperity. If we are in prospering position, the other nations can’t dictate us. We can’t hope mercy from other nations; in fact they will never show mercy to us”. Prabowo added the information.
How we govern the family reflected how we govern the country. The family who counts on debt will face many problems, so does a country. It will be weakened by the debts and soon or later it will receive many pressures from other nations.
Dear readers, do you agree with the idea that as nation we need to be strong in order to achieve the goals?
