R.S.R. Hirsch on Holding High Office

A Point to Ponder:

R.S.R. Hirsch on Avos 1:10 (P. 425 in Siddur)

«Hate the holding of High Office for the office holder quickly becomes a slave to his position. He will do things - or he will believe that, for the sake of his position he MUST [emphasis mine] do certain things - which actually are contrary to his own view and inclinations, and which he would never do if he were free to follow his own personal philosophies of life.»
