Adolfo Hitler once said that “It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
In an age where quick victories matter at the expense of justice, doing nothing becomes the crime. The front line of American civilization is at grave risk for women, the sick, the poor, the elderly and minority populations. The bravest among us include war veterans who have nowhere to hide after their badges of honor get manufactured post-war or post-mortem.
The most vulnerable among us will become easily expendable by the roadmap set forth by current leaders. The rest of our civilization is at risk if we allow this malfeasance to continue. It’s a shame when gladiators trump civility and meander unopposed.
We can’t afford victories which disguise the truth. This is not the time to become comfortably numb.
