Click over this-away to read about The Roots of Apathy.
I have heard and read the following that is attributed to Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
Or, don’t read any of what I wrote here or just nonchalantly dismiss it, and remain in the very popular and very populated World of Apathy.
