"For we should never assume that the political man is always suitably equipped to articulate a commanding vision of a new society. The politician is overwhelmed by concrete tasks to be performed, decisions to be taken urgently, often without any pause for long reflection. He or she is haunted by the failure to deliver. Their working hours are spent in a permanent state of emergency. The shadow of parliamentary opposition, where it exists, blurs their sense of priorities. They live with intrigue and the constant threat of betrayal within their own ranks. It is, I suspect, a feverish atmosphere and hardly conducive to the state of reflective self-consciousness from which a vision of a new society is born."
- George Lamming
