Man is a political animal. His behaviour is associated with the social setting in which it occurs. How does a good man act? Morals cannot be reduced to a set of principles, but we can make generalisations of what it is to be good men. Neither does theology shape man’s behaviour, as religion is a mere conduit for a code of behaviour.

If the individual does not have idealism, the society won’t have it, and thus, the nation won’t have it. Idealism has to start with the individual at home and spread out from there.

The future of the nation depends on how children have been brought up to become leaders and to have principles in life. The good of the individual becomes the good of the community.
