“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” – Frederick Douglass
We the People have all the power. All the oppression and other nonsense we endure is all our fault, and our fault alone. We can change it, but for that we need to take a stand. To not take a stand is to share in responsibility for the wrongdoing.
