Struggle And Progress, Two Sides Of The Same Coin.


 

       If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favour freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.
-- Frederick Douglass 
          Simple words that say so much, if you want progress in social conditions, then you must be prepared to struggle. If you are not prepared to struggle, then it is safe to say, you are naive or you don’t want progress enough. Progress and struggle in social conditions are interminably entwined, history with its centuries of struggle verify that statement. Progress in the field of social conditions, always has a price, if you want it, then you have to pay that price, you can’t sit back and demand progress without paying, in this world it doesn’t work that way. If you are not prepared to pay the price, then walk away from progress, accept what you have. There is no bargain basement in the department of social conditions in this world. Agitation is the ploughing of the field, struggle is driving that plough, your crop will be the desired progress.
