Beautiful quote by Frederick Douglass capturing the struggle of social conservatives in today’s hostile and destructive liberal world. Posted in reply to an article on Kim Davis taking a stand.

If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess
to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who
want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain
without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the
awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral
one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and
physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing
without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just
what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out
the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed
upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with
either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are
prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.


Love it.
