"Good societies have cultivated fearlessness and hope among their citizens. good politics has always been about real courage, real fearlessness. Take Ghandi whose ultimate weapon was fearlessness- against one of the worst empires of our times- and the very notion of not co-operating with that empire was based on fearlessness. When Martin Luther King walked in the Ghandian tradition he walked in fearlessness. Every leader worth their name- promotes fearlessness." - Vandana shiva

"Patriotism is when we say we have love for our nation- we have love for our communities. Sometimes our nation does things that are positive and sometimes our nation does things that are negative and its my responsibility out of my love for this nation to speak out loudly in support of the things it does well- and speak out loudly against those things that its doing that is hurtful." - Michael Franti, musician, Burning Spear

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
