Tolerance and Liberty: A Call To Action

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing[1]To wit[2]:

When they came for the communists,
I did not speak out;
As I was not a communist. 

When they locked up the social democrats,
I did not speak out;
I was not a social democrat. 

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
As I was not a trade unionist. 

When they came for the Jews,
I did not speak out;
As I was not a Jew. 

Then they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak for me.
