The story of the man who was identified as Jose Mujica has now been inspiring the whole world!
Jose Mujica was tagged as the poorest president in the world, in fact, he doesn't care if he drives around riding his 1987 Volkswagen. What's even more interesting is the fact that he donated 90% of his presidential salary to the charities.
Despite that he have stepped down as Uruguay's head of state, they still believe that his words will forever be remembered.
This man who was tagged as the poorest president in the world claims that rich people should not enter politics because they couldn't relate with the struggles that the ordinary people have experienced.
“We invented this thing called representative democracy, where we say the majority is who decides,” he said. “So it seems to me that we (heads of state) should live like the majority and not like the minority.”
He also stated that rich people tend to view the world through their perspective.
“They tend to view the world through their perspective, which is the perspective of money,” he added.
“Even when operating with good intentions, the perspective they have of the world, of life, of their decisions, is informed by wealth. If we live in a world where the majority is supposed to govern, we have to try to root our perspective in that of the majority, not the minority.”
He then clarified that he doesn't have an issue against people who seek for money. He just believes that they are more suited to commercial pursuits than politics.
“I’m not against people who have money, who like money, who go crazy for money,” he said. “But in politics we have to separate them. We have to run people who love money too much out of politics, they’re a danger in politics. People who love money should dedicate themselves to industry, to commerce, to multiply wealth. But politics is the struggle for the happiness of all.”
