“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Denial quote by Lynne Namka

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Most people have heard this familiar phrase, but few seem to use it as a means to hold a mirror up to themselves and ask: “what is it that I am doing nothing about that I know is evil or that I may in fact be contributing to but allowing myself to wash my hands of it?”

Albert Einstein said, “The world is in greater peril from those who tolerate or encourage evil than from those who actually commit it.”

Hitler was able to commit unthinkable atrocities against human beings because enough people didn’t take a stand against him and his regime.

In the same way, most good people do not take a stand against animal cruelty.

In fact, most decent, compassionate people actually fund it.

Those who point that out are resisted, rejected, mocked or simply dismissed as “radical”.

And yet it remains true that animals in our society are routinely–and legally–tortured and violently, cruelly slaughtered, and good men do nothing.

If dogs or cats were treated in this way, many people would intervene.

Cows, lambs, pigs, turkeys, chickens, etc., have few who will defend them.

Right now, evil against animals is triumphing very well.

But we have the power to do something to change it.

Let’s learn from history.

Let’s not do nothing.
