Activists.

Those ..
who are not brain dead,
who are committed to their cause,
who resist being bought and sold,
who are compelled to take a stand,
who are driven to defend the less fortunate, the less powerful,
who care about human rights, privacy, and individuality,
who understand all life is in peril,
who see the great approaching darkness in all its facets,
who take personal risks and make sacrifices,
who suffer and live frugal lives,
who refuse to be beaten by the powerful forces in place,
who understand the price to be paid for inaction ...

The Activist Reference Desk
is dedicated
to Earth's committed warriors,
those who care, for the Earth, her causes, and making a difference ...

2   ACTIVIST QUOTES

Albert Einstein
World Famous Physicist
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."

Doris "Granny D" Haddock
Popular Reform Activist - Government, Social, Economic, Environment (1910 - )
"We have a duty to look after each other. If we lose control of our government, then we lose our ability to dispense justice and human kindness. Our first priority today, then, is to defeat utterly those forces of greed and corruption that have come between us and our self-governance."

Speaking to Citizens for Participation in Political Action, Boston September 27, 2002
"What we are seeing now from the far right is not conservatism at all. It is fascism: the imposition of a national and worldwide police state to enforce a narrow world view that enriches and empowers the few at the expense of the many, and that gives no respect or honor to other cultures, ways of living, or opinions. To call that conservatism is a crime against the memory of America's great and true conservatives, who might think that government ought to be less involved in life than we old liberals would concur with, but who nevertheless stood for the core American values that today's right wing leaders undermine at every opportunity."

Abraham Lincoln
letter to William F. Elkins, Nov 21st, 1864
"It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war."

Margaret Mead
Anthropologist
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Victor Hugo
(1802 - 1885)"There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world: and that is an idea whose time has come."
