“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)

That’s the short version, attributed to Burke. A longer version reads as follows:

“Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other’s principles, nor experienced in each other’s talents, nor at all practiced in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavors, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.”  –Edmund Burke, Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents 82-83 (1770) in Select Works of Edmund Burke, vol. 1, p. 146 (Liberty Fund ed. 1999).

That statement is as true today as it was 200 years ago when Edmund wrote it, and it applies to both men and women alike.

The truth is, this is exactly where the world sees itself today. Currently, millions of people are under the subjugation of dictators across the globe. From China to North Korea, to the Middle East, to Rwanda, and hundreds of other countries. People are imprisoned, torched, jailed, re-educated, and mistreated and yet no one is doing anything about it. Countries, one by one, are becoming subjects to evil empires, and citizens allow it to happen by ignoring the atrocities as they come.

America is literally at a turning point and just might suffer the same fatal blow as countless others. All that and more below…
