Dissent is Patriotic <– Mark Twain

18 Apr

It doesn't matter which party is in control, or whether they are "authorities"; if they are wrong, it would be treason not to openly oppose them

The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth’s political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new suit, is disloyal, he is a traitor.

That he may be the only one who thinks he sees this decay, does not excuse him: it is his duty to agitate anyway, and it is the duty of others to vote him down if they do not see the matter as he does.

Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (1889)
