“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.’ “
