Some people argue that the surest indicator of a great nation is not determined by its elite groups. This may sound true to some adherents who believe that the welfare of all its people is the most reflective indicator for a great nation. However, this essay will insist that both approaches are essential for a great nation.

Admittedly, merely great acheivement of few elites, from our historical perspective, did not completely prove the quality of a great nation. For one, when we think of Mahatma Ghandi, even though he stood as a symbol of non-violent resistance, India is still suffering from gender inequality and class hierarchy. This case alone proves that even the most famous leader is regarded as the symbol of peace, that does not represent the democratic atmosphere and even reflects the opposite. Thus, the reason that the welfare of its all people may convince us rather than the fact that few elites demonstrate a nation's quality.

However, sometimes the achievement of few elites does contribute in raising its nation's reputation. Considering many inventions and cultural heritages that historical figures made, few can yield better images to its nation and change the quality of life. For instance, Thomas Edison, who popularized the electricity to overall U.S., can be regarded as a frontier in making a great nation for the U.S.A. Even though this invention was initiated by individual, it had significant effect on the human history. Also, when we remind of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the greatest composer of Austria, even though the Austria does not have affluent cultural heritages except Mozart, Austria is known as the hometome of great musician and attracts a plethora of tourists. These facts tell us that even though some achievements can be confined to few individuals, the nation and its people may get advantages and consequently proceed to become a better nation.

To sum, even though the indicator of a great nation seems to fulfill the welfare of all its people, but sometimes achievement of few elites would yield a better images for a nation.
