An idea is bigger than the people. It has the potential to transform.
The idea of transparency is bigger than the people fighting for it. It is bigger than those fighting to obstruct it.
It is an idea whose time has come.
People fighting for the idea may fail at times. People fighting against it may be powerful. It may even seem at times that they are winning. But in the end it is the idea that will win.
The idea will defeat or transform those against it. The idea will raise the standards of those fighting for it.
