The animal species in which . . . the practice of mutual aid has attained the greatest development . . . are invariably the most numerous, the most prosperous, and the most open to further progress. . . .  The unsociable species, on the contrary, are doomed to decay.

--Pyotr Kropotkin, “Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution”

Oppression makes a wise man mad.  Your fathers were wise men, and if they did not go mad, they became restive under this treatment.  They felt themselves the victims of grievous wrongs, wholly incurable in their colonial capacity.  With brave men there is always a remedy for oppression.

--Frederick Douglass, “What To the Slave is the Fourth of July?”
