Perhaps the reform and fighting the corruption are the best matters that aim to reform the state’s situation and to lead the nation forward, into more progress and development. However, according to Sheikh Fahad Salem Al-Ali Al-Sabah in this article, the achievement of these matters requires an effective work and sacrifices for the nation because the desire to reform is not enough.

Sheikh Fahad expressed his optimism of the desire of political command to reform, fight the corruption, applying the law, rebuilding the financial and administrative structure of the state and to give Kuwait a commercial and financial rank. Thus, he wondered how and who will accomplish such desires.

As a respond, the sheikh tackled the fifties and sixties period, when the late Sheikh Abdullah Al- Salem Al -Sabah started working on the modern Kuwait, he pushed the qualified youth desiring to work, into the political and administrative sector. He founded a new generation of all the family members to acquire an experience, to prepare a new generation capable of preserving the family essence, therefore, the state essence and to execute his comprehensive perspective regarding the development of the popular participation rule managed by the state. It is also aiming to increase the standard of living and to supervise the process of Kuwait’s flourishing.

He carried on by clarifying that in the early sixties at the constitution phase, Sheikh Abdul Al Salem adopted the neutrality policy among the conflict parties taking a strong and clear decision without creating any administrative and political vacuum, due to another path of the family youth who acquired the experience, qualifications and readiness to accomplish their duties. Consequently, his plan in the fifties stabled the country for years, after noting that in the constitutional phase, back in the sixties, his perspective opposed the conflicts and struggles between the family leaders, and its influence was obvious on the perspective execution.

Sheikh Fahad declared that this perspective was clear and the executors where known. Those who couldn’t work folded and only respected and appreciated the family and the Kuwaiti peopleHowever, things became more confusing today; hypocrisy and sycophancy became the distinguished characteristic in the political work. He also added that the public interest of Kuwait and its citizens is the same today as it was back in the sixties, stressing that the braves should work for the interest of their country as they did in the sixties. The final cure would be neutralizing everyone for Kuwait’s interest and its people like Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah did that time.

Sheikh Fahad concluded the following: did we prepare a new leading generation like in the fifties?”
