Government is too big and too important to be left to the politicians.
Chester Bowles

The basis of a democratic state is liberty.

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

What has destroyed liberty and the rights of men in every government
that has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating
of all cares and powers into one body.

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

"Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.''–Winston Churchill

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

"This is not the end! Two years ago, the Yuuzhan Vong entered our galaxy. They came not as friends and equals, though we would gladly have welcomed them as such, but as thieves and conquerors. They saw the galaxy at peace and mistook the strengh of our convictions for frailty of arms, and wisdom of compromise for the timity of cowards. They attacked without provocation or mercy, slaying billions of our citizens, enslaving entire worlds, and sacrificing millions of beings to appease the bloodlust of their imaginary gods. They believed we would be easily defeated, because they believed we would yield without a fight. They were wrong. We have fought at Dubrillion, Ithor, the Black Bantha, Borleias, and Corellia. We have fought them every leg of the way from the Outer Rim into the Core. We have lost untold numbers of loved ones, my own son Anakin and my husband's dear friend Chewbacca among them, and now we are battling in the skies over Coruscant itself. We are still fighting. Soon the enemy will be on our rooftops, in our homes, roaming the dark underlayers of our city. To those able to evacuate and to those trapped behind, I say the same thing I would tell my twins were I able to reach them behind enemy lines: Keep fighting. This is not the end. Twice already, Jedi-led forces have decimated Yuuzhan Vong fleets, and we enter each battle with new weapons and better tactics. We have prevailed against ruthless enimes before, against Palpatine, against Thrawn, against the Ssi-ruuk. This war we know how to win. Keep fighting until you can fight no longer, then exhaust the enemy chasing you, and turn to fight some more. Keep fighting. I promise you, we will prevail.""

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work
and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

"Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will."

Re: Rebel/New Republic Wisdom

Freedom, governmental freedom, does not go hand in hand with personal freedom: we choose that path ourselves, and rid the people and things in our way so we can enjoy that personal freedom.
