Those that know, but do not do

 

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do NOTHING” 

Edmund Burke

 

If you are neutral in situations you have chosen the side of the oppressor”                                

~ Desmund Tutu

 

“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it”    

MLK junior

 

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”                             

~ MLK junior

 

“To be mistaken is a misfortune to be pitied, but to know the Truth and not to conform one’s actions to it is a crime which Heaven and Earth condemn.”

~ Giuseppe Mazzini  ’The Duties of Man and Other Essays’ (1910)

 

 

”There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious – makes you so sick at heart – that you can’t take part.You can’t even passively take part. And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to those who own it that the machine will be prevented from working at all” 

~ Mario Savio

 

“There’s nothing to be gained from passive observance, the simple documenting of conditions, because, at its core, it sets a bad example. Every time something is observed and not fixed, or when one has a chance to give in some way and does not, there is a lie being told, the same lie we all know by heart but which needn’t be reiterated.”

~ Dave Eggers

 

 ” I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do”   

~ Edward Everatt Hale American author and Unitarian clergyman

 

“Anyone ‘in the know’ who is not actively sharing the Truth and resisting this Tyranny on a regular basis; is not only a pathetic lazy coward, but is assisting the Jewish New World Order – therefore a traitor.”

~ Digger

 

It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi
