Shine, Mary James C.PP.S.
One of the advantages of the American system of government is the possibility it affords politicians with divergent views to organize groups or movements which, because of the pertinent issues that they advocate, rapidly rise and come into prominence. These movements win followers by exposing and protesting against the graft and corruption which seep into and influence the various departments of the government. Some few members of the political hierarchy lend their voices to the cause of justice and righteousness and then the movement drifts into oblivion where the principles that prompted the display of courage smolder until a powerful personality once again arises who can weld together politicians of like ideals.
