Points to Ponder

"It is idle to talk of civil liberties to adults who were systematically taught in adolescence that they had none; and it is sheer hypocrisy to call such people freedom loving." - Edgar Friedenberg, The Dignity of Youth and Other Atavisms

 

"This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle! Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will... The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Fredrick Douglass (1857).
