He is an activist - one who tries to steer the public towards some ideology, be it democracy or free speech. It is his job to advocate his visionary ideas even when most people do not initially support or even understand his vision. His job is to win them over to his vision, not to go along with the crowd. Such is the situation with Ghandhi of India and so on.
She is a politician - one who tries to represent the people's wishes. It is her job to speak in accordance to what the people want, nevermind moral or immoral. Thus if the majority of the people are against homosexuality or if they perceive requesting foreign support as "foreign interference in domestic politics", it is her job to agree with the people! Her job is to win votes, so as to represent the people's view in parliament, not to steer the population towards her own view and risk losing votes in the process!
Each is important in his/her own way, just as India needed both Ghandi and its PM.
Such simple things, the people in SDP and WP do not understand.
They look upon each other as enemies.
They have fallen for our trap!!!
We, in young Pay-And-Pay, have succeeded in driving a wedge between the oppositions!
We did this by masquerading as WP supporters to bash SDP, and then as SDP supporters to bash WP.
We egged their genuine supporters on, and get them to bash each other!
We start the spark and join the fight, bashing both sides like double-headed snakes, without them even knowing that we are moving from side to side!
We did it!
Boss, it's time to give us a raise!
We, young Pay-and-Pay, are very good fishermen. LOL
