Listening to an interviewee on the radio yesterday - talking about the synagogue killings:

"Silence in the face of bigotry is the same as acquiescence ..."

Thought it said a lot!

So true, Towan.

Maybe a little too much. People should speak up against bigotry but silence doesn't make one an acquiescence. An on-looker should have helped to prevent a crime from happening (this will make them an on-looker no more). If what he/she did was just standing there, maybe petrified, that doesn't make him/her an accomplice.
