This is from todays Hayom Yom.
Rabbis and scholars are called the “eyes of the community” and “heads of the thousands of Israel,” and when the head is healthy, the body is then also healthy.
Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe.
I would say this is a great quote which applies greatly to the current hot topic.
(Idea from The Real Shliach)
