Saturday: Quotes to remember as this day begins

This may indeed be a very historic day for America and Wisconsin, whether it’s for the struggle for the working class and the outrage at seeing how autocracy laced with theocratic ignorance combines with cronyistic bought out corruption that makes many masses of people come to the streets to show the World just what it means to fight back against what many have stood for against all odds for generations. That time is now. The streets wait for our steps.

These quotes about civil disobedience come from many other times of darkness and are as relevant today as they were then:

Dare to do things worthy of imprisonment if you mean to be of consequence.

Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
~Chinese Proverb

It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.

If… the machine of government… is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.
~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849

You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.
~Malcolm X

Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.
~Mark Twain

Integrity has no need of rules.
~Albert Camus

Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices.
~George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists

It is necessary to distinguish between the virtue and the vice of obedience.
~Lemuel K. Washburn, Is The Bible Worth Reading And Other Essays, 1911

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
~Bishop Desmond Tutu

It is not a man’s duty, as a matter of course, to devote himself to the eradication of any, even the most enormous wrong; he may still properly have other concerns to engage him; but it is his duty, at least, to wash his hands of it, and, if he gives it no thought longer, not to give it practically his support. If I devote myself to other pursuits and contemplations, I must first see, at least, that I do not pursue them sitting upon another man’s shoulders.
~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience
