Complacency and Collusion.......

'History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.' ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.' ~ Edmund Burke

'The wicked are always surprised to find that the good can be clever.' ~ Luc de Clapiers de Vauvenargues

Very very true. It's amazing how much harm we can do by staying neutral to something that needs action.

Amen ! We seem to live in a relatively complacent society now ... it's as if the fight has gone out of humankind ... !

saddletrampsk, ive a sister in toronto, and ive have to say that i find the canadians no more complacent then us here on this little island. In fact I found them more prepared to stand up for what they believed, now i maynot have agreed with them, but at least there was passion there.

gata, very true, but each of us make history everyday, it is not set in stone, so we can make it reflect other things.

    Great Quotes .... just look around us and you'll see that all these are happening in everywhere. Humans against Humans!!!
Fun, well if we can create little places in all our homes where we dont have that, we can build better ways, maybe idealistic but ill never stop thinking that humans need humans to determine who they are, and that can be done in a way we all learn from.

mockeen, like trying to stop a wildfire sometimes, we need to cut some complacency breaks.
