"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

One response to “House Judiciary Committee debates the limits of our conscience under Trump”

    Isn’t is obvious why this resolution is perfectly reasonable and prudent? We are living in paper house surrounded by the fires set and stoked 24/7 by a mentally incompetent sociopathic President. As well as his cognitively impaired family members. As well as cabinet members who resemble cartoon characters and have no experience, skill or suitable temperament for the work they are expected (?) to tackle.

    It’s a surreal, dangerous, dysfunctional, inept, clueless, humorless swamp of bullshit and fossil fuels. Based on POTUS security detail costs alone, the government will be bankrupt very soon. And don’t forget there is a need for a war right about now. How about Syria? Disaster Capitalism is a sure bet.

    Current POTUS is determined to ruin this country. I mean RUIN. As in destroy. As in bring it to its knees. As in light the match.

    This resolution is one small beacon of light in a country growing dimmer and dimmer……and dimmer. Every day.
