Ukraine is a peculiar state from what I have been able to gather. This post sums it up very well. I’ve heard today that there is concern that the Nazis may organise a coup in Kiev. I thought the unit that flew the standard of the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich, in Kiev was just a small force. Perhaps I was wrong…
To sin by silence, when we should protest, makes cowards of men. The human race has climbed on protest. Had no voice been raised against injustice, ignorance, and lust, the inquisition yet would serve the law, and guillotines decide our least disputes.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, “Protest”
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago
