Das Schweigen der Massen ist das Verbrechen, für das sie büßen. Das Schweigen ist die schwerste Verfolgung. Niemals haben die Heiligen geschwiegen. (Blaise Pascal)(1623-1662)
Quote Area 4
The Anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order, and in the assertion that, without authority, there could not be worse violence than that of authority under existing conditions. They are mistaken only in thinking that Anarchy can be instituted by a revolution. "To establish Anarchy." "Anarchy will be instituted." But it will be instituted only by there being more and more people who do not require protection from governmental power, and by there being more and more people who will be ashamed of applying this power. (Leo Tolstoi)
Quote Area 5

(David Hume, Essays: Moral, Political and Literary)"
