…reforms in your own country if they seem to touch your neighbor but not you directly, people from the same faith but not the same congregation… Here is what somebody said a few years ago, food for thoughts :

“First they came for the Socialists, and I  did not speak out —   Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists,   and I did not speak out —   Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did   not speak out — Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.”

– Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who opposed the Nazi regime. He spent the last 7 years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
