…naivety is not necessarily a bad thing, like you say, but it could be dangerous, in politics. And it’s ok to be righteous, but not self-righteous.
Self-righteousness is defined as a feeling or display of (usually smug) moral superiority. Youths who are self-righteous will eventually become arrogant and disdainful of anyone who do not share their sentiments or opinions.
And all the adulation from DAP supporters will definitely feed his ego and encourage him to believe that he and his affiliations and opinions are superior to everyone else. A good example is Hannah Yeoh.
BTW, it’s Gil, not Gillian. I’m a guy. Cheers!
