"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 make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all."
"A single, seemingly powerless person who dares to cry out the word of truth
and to stand behind it with all his person and all his life, ready to pay a
high price, has, surprisingly, greater power, though formally disfranchised,
than do thousands of anonymous voters."
'if you want to know who rules you, look at who you're not allowed to criticise' Voltaire
