kerravonsen: The words of Martin Niemoller, about Nazi Germany. (first-they-came)

It's easy to defend the rights of someone you agree with. It's not so easy to defend the rights of someone who is "mistaken at the top of their voice".

(This post brought to you courtesy of an argument I had with someone on a completely different topic.)
kerravonsen: Miles: The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart. (trade-heart)
I would rather be thought of as naive and gullible, than to treat innocent people with suspicion and fear.
