Sir Winston Churchill:
Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. –Spoken during England’s darkest hours as it faced possible defeat at the hands of Germany during the second world war.
America died because Americans refused to take a stand, succumbing to the idea that it was better to live under the boots of tyrants than fight for her.
