The choice: Speak, or say nothing

It has been said that all that is required for evil to thrive is for good men to say nothing.

I also firmly believe that evil results can issue forth from people with good in their hearts and belief in their intentions.

So why am I remaining silent? It’s tiresome, yes, to reason with those who refuse reason and to attempt rational debate with those whose only response is emotional diatribe. But if theirs is the only story being told, how can you blame people for not knowing any different.

Enough silence. If I’m to be ridiculed and generally despised by people who claim the high ground of tolerance, then I might as well speak my mind.
