Robert Townsend 1965
Sometimes it's necessary in an organization,
for someone to just stand up and yell
stormy MON retired from a gypsy recycling business and
lives on a small goat farm in Oregon
The wise sage studies the cause, the source,
the root of the problem.
Etienne de la Boetie 1553 France
Resolve to serve no more and you are at once free.
I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over
but simply that you support him no longer.
Then you will behold him,
like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away,
fall of his own weight and break in pieces.
Kahlil Gibran THE PROPHET Freedom 1923
If it's a despot you would dethrone,
see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed.
