Leo Tolstoy concluded that the only way to bring about a fundamental change in society is to realize a change in public opinion, a change in people’s minds. Then how can we change public opinion? Tolstoy asserted: “It is only necessary for people to say what they really think or at least to refrain from saying what they do not think.” It is vital, in other words, not to be swayed by others’ opinions or past ways of thinking or doing. Instead each of us must become wise, possessing our own firm convictions.
