Politics and self-promotion
In political contests, each side needs to push themselves for their good qualities, as well as their political policy proposals. Now it is impossible not to notice that a person who, in the view of a majority of the country, actually has bad character was elected anyway, praising himself to the skies. This raises the question of how much dishonest boasting eventually does a person in, as Hillel seems to claim, and how long it takes. This by no means excuses dishonest self-promotion, but it raises the question of the role of society in not rewarding it. What are your thoughts on this painful subject?
