"Ideas shape the course of history."- John Maynard Keynes

 

 

"I’ve seen too much hate to want hate, myself, and every time I see it, I say to myself, hate is too great a burden to bear.  Somehow we must be able to stand up against our most bitter opponents and say:   We shall match your capacity to inflict suffering by our capacity to endure suffering.  We shall meet your physical force with soul force.  Do to us what you will, and we shall continue to love you.  We cannot in all good conscience obey your unjust laws because non cooperation with evil is as much a moral obligation as is cooperation with good.  Throw us in jail and we shall still love you.  Bomb our homes and threaten our children, and we shall still love you.  Send your hooded perpetrators of violence into our community at the midnight hour and beat us and leave us half dead, and we shall still love you.  But, be ye assured that we will wear you down with our capacity to suffer.  One day we shall win freedom but not only for ourselves.  We shall so appeal to your heart and conscience that we shall win you in the process and our victory will be a double victory."

-- Martin Luther King Jr.
