Finally, a call for ethics from the top

I first read the news in TOI. The news was about Lee Myung-bak (President of south korea) asking the koreans to rise beyond being just wealthy; to be ethical and righteous. I was impressed but then i wanted to clarify if he indeed said so. Here is the news link in Korea Herald.  

 “raise ethical standards in all sectors of society and build a clean and righteous nation, beyond just being a wealthy country,”

Coming from the president it carries a lot of importance. Atleast, thats the impression i get from my stay here for the past 2 years. In Korea, and possibly in Confucian societies change comes only from the top down.

Is the academic/scientific community listening?
