"If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go: perchance it will wear smooth — certainly the machine will wear out. ...but if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn."  — Henry David Thoreau, 'Civil Disobedience', 1849

     "But then you'll be on an Enemies' List."
     "There are some Enemies' Lists people should want to be on. Hey, there are worse things than being on an Enemies' List."
     "Name one."
     "Being on a List of Collaborators."
