New Party, New Ideology, No Recompense in this life

" ... there was no question so much of a new party as of a new ideology.   This alone could arouse the inner moral forces that were necessary for such a gigantic struggle.  And for this struggle the leaders must be men of first-class brains and indomitable courage.  If the struggle on behalf of the new ideology is not conducted by men of heroic spirit who are ready to sacrifice everything, within a short while it will be impossible to find real fighting followers who are ready to lay down their lives for the cause.  A man who fights only for his own existence has not much left over for the service of the community.

In order to secure the conditions that are necessary for success, everybody concerned must be made to understand that the new movement looks to posterity for its honour and glory but that it has no recompense to offer to the present day members."
