Cowardice, expediency, vanity, conscience

Lawful Rebellion means taking a position that is neither safe, politic nor popular but it is right!  Dr Martin Luther King Jnr. stood up for what he knew to be right and dealt with the adversity that was thrown at him as a result – he stood shoulder to shoulder with like-minded others and through their solidarity, they stood firm and resolute.

A nation cannot survive treason from within

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at
the gates is less formidable, for he is known, and he carries
his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those
within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through
all the alleys, heard in the very hall of government itself.
For the traitor appears no traitor. He speaks in the accents
familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their
garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in
hearts of men. He rots the soul of a nation. He works
secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars
of a city. He infects the body politic so that it can no
longer resist. A Murderer Is Less To Be Feared.”

– Cicero, 42 B.C.

He said what?

Tony Blair, a devout Trotsky and Marxist is quoted as saying that he would:

“…destroy Britain and all it stands for”

He went on to be Prime Minister and has just about succeeded in his aim.
