“A time comes when silence is betrayal”

1 02 2014

“A time comes when silence is betrayal. That time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.”


That was Martin Luther King in 1967 when he was being hounded, investigated, intimidated, and unsuccessfully discredited by the F.B.I.

Now this is the mantra of Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange, and other courageous persons in our own time forced into exile and imprisonment and relentlessly the subjects of government defamation in our own time.

Food for thought, and recipe for action, for the rest of us!
