This page is dedicated to the subject of 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
All those people that are well aware of the agenda, but just sit back and do NOTHING. In hope that somehow things will pan out. Somehow miraculously get better. That someone or some magical external force out there is going to somehow fix the problem for them. A hero, a politician, their guru or God – anyone but themselves.
Week after week, month after month, season after season, year after year all they ever do is browse. Full time Truth browsers – viewers, spectators, observers of the drama.
It is this childlike attitude of not taking responsibility which has got us into this mess in the first place.
“If you are neutral in situations you have chosen the side of the oppressor”

“He who does not bellow the Truth when he knows the Truth, makes himself the accomplice of liars and forgers.”
~ Charles Peguy “The Honest People” Basic Verities (1943)

“Just being Truth-browsers and flicking threads across to others who are already awake; is unacceptable levels of Truth activism. “
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it”
~ MLK junior
“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
~ Edmund Burke
“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
“The ultimate ignorance is the rejection of something you know nothing about and refuse to investigate”
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
“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
“To be modest in speaking Truth is Hypocrisy.”
~ Kahlil Gibran – “Narcotics and Dissecting Knives”
“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
