This is well crafted and written and I believe it will continue to be read for a long time. The message is simple and still as relevant today as the day it was written. It may be short but it is powerful and a recommended read.

An elderly, time-serving politician, used to toeing the party line, stands up to give a speech. But it doesn't come out as he intended. From this apparently simple storyline comes an unsparing indictment of modern politics, and the importance of being true to yourself. However long it takes. Don't be fooled. This story may be short, but it packs a powerful punch. Once read, it'll stick in your mind for a long time.

A powerful and relevant soliloquy that loudly speaks to the future of threats to human rights of all minorities.  It is a plea for governments to do what is right, and resist the expediency of abandoning ideals and the personal moral compass for political power.  A must read for all time.
