The mission of a liberal is neither soft nor easy. Liberalism is tough, it requires focussed intelligence and a steadfast foundation of ethics.
Do we just standby and watch this abhorrence occur ? Do we just show our disgust by writing on our WordPress blog ? Or do we conveniently turn the other way, or just blindly watch ‘I’m a Liberal Get Me Out of Celebrity Ballroom Dancing on Ice “?
The least that we can do is engage in the ideas of the political conversation in places that enjoy freedom of speech and democracy. Liberal Pluralism is an amazing luxury, let’s use it & enjoy it !
thoughts that immediately come to mind:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
Pastor Martin Niemoller 1892-1984
