12.01.2021 – A statement by Mark Twain


“It doesn’t matter what the press says

It doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say

It doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that

Something wrong is something right.


Republics are founded on one principle above all else

The requirement that we stand up for what we believe in

No matter the odds and consequences.


When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move

 Your job is to plant yourself like a tree

Beside the river of truth and tell the whole world:

                         ‘No, you move.’ “


Mark Twain
