Quote of the Week: Cory Bernardi, “The Conservative Revolution”

Cory Bernardi, Senator for South Australia, Commonwealth Parliament.

The survival instinct of our political representatives will never diminish, but history shows us that leaders who demonstrate conviction generally fare better than those without it. They are also more likely to be remembered as visionaries or reformers. Greatness lies in courage, and the politician who slavishly follows fashionable trends is rarely one who stands on principle. In turn, those that stand on principle rarely find their political work to be an easy job: it may be thankless while the task is at hand, but in the long run, maintaining a sense of integrity is a reward in itself. Public acknowledgment, if and when it comes, provides the vindication needed to turn one pioneer’s work into a mission around which a following can form.

▪ Cory Bernardi, The Conservative Revolution (Connor Court, 2013) extract from page 137.
