The problem with trying to stay "neutral"

This is an important point, I think:

Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

-- Elie Wiesel

And it just a true between friends as it is between nations.


  1. That quote is spot on.

    Ummmmm, who's Elie Wiesel?

  2. Hi, Dave. If you click on his name, that's a link that will take you to information about him.

    Short version: He's a writer and holocaust survivor who also won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Glad you liked the quote. I did too!
