Contrast

December 20, 2011

Two men who were leaders of their nations died this past weekend, and the contrast between them could hardly be greater. Vaclav Havel was an honest and courageous man who helped lead not only his own country but also the rest of Eastern Europe to greater freedom and prosperity. Kim Jong-il, on the other hand, was a megalomaniac whose policies kept his country poor and isolated. It’s quite a coincidence that they left this world so close together.
