The wisdom of John Curtin

In today's AFR, Mark Latham quoted John Curtin:
If, from time to time, a policy is not favoured by the majority of the people, there is no reason why the things we fight for should be put aside to curry favour with any sections of the people. I say to you that, in the period I have been leader, I have always believed that the movement has to make up its mind what is the right thing to do and, no matter what the daily press says of any section of the community might say, we must go on fighting.
