419.  The time appears to me to have come when it is the duty of all to make their dissent from religion known.  (Religion & Dissent)  John Stuart Mill

 

 

49,375.  The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it.  If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.  (Dissent & Opinion & Truth)  John Stuart Mill

 

 

85,632.  If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.  (Power & Opinion & Minority & Dissent)  John Stuart Mill

 

 

73,686.  I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.  (Free Speech & Dissent & Protest)  Voltaire

 

 

128,976.  [The first principle of British democracy is] our prime duty to each other and to what our conscience tells us to be right.  If this leads individuals into conflict with the law, those individuals must be ready to take the consequences non-violently.  In our democracy no man should tell another man to break the law, nor should any man break the law to by-pass Parliament.  But a person who is punished for breaking an unjust law may if he is sincere and his cause wins public sympathy, create a public demand to have that unjust law changed through Parliament.  This is the first and most fundamental principle of British democracy.  It has a deep moral significance. Our religious and political liberties rest upon it.  (Activism & Protest & Dissent)  Tony Benn, speech Bristol, cited The Times 5 August 1972

 

 

76,033.  Thousands in a tightly packed column marched through the streets in the centre of Amsterdam while the Germans circled round them in tanks.  Of course the demonstrators weren’t armed, yet they found a weapon in marching and singing.  So they marched along the Rosenbach singing L’ Internationale.  (Netherlands & Demonstration & Protest & Dissent & Courage)  Gerben Wagenar

 

 

830.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is a mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.  (Truth & Dissent & Lie & State)  Joseph Goebbels

 

 

1,115.  I don’t have to tell you things are bad.  Everybody knows things are bad.  It’s a depression.  Everybody’s out of work.  Or scared of losing their job.  The dollar buys a nickle’s-worth.  Banks are going bust.  Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter.  Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do.  And there’s no end to it.  We know the air is unfit to breathe.  And our food is unfit to eat.  And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be.  We know things are bad.  Worse than bad.  They’re crazy.  It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don’t go out any more.  We sit in the house and slowly the world we’re living in is getting smaller.  And all we say is, Please, at least leave us alone in our living-rooms.  Let me have my toaster, and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything.  Just leave us alone.  Well I’m not going to leave you alone.  I want you to get mad.  I don’t want you to protest.  I won’t want you to ride.  I don’t want you to write to your Congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write.  I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.  All I know is first you’ve got to get mad.  You’ve got to say, I’m a human being.  Goddamit.  My life has value!  (Life’s Like That & Dissent & Protest & Crazy & Man & Human Being & Mad)  Network 1976 starring Faye Dunaway & Peter Finch & William Holden & Robert Duvall et al, director Sidney Lumet

1,118.  We’re not going to take this any more.  We’re as mad as Hell.  (Life's Like That & Dissent & Protest & Mad)  Ian Pattison, Rab C Nesbitt, Racket 

 

 

5,345.  Thought that is silenced is always rebellious.  Majorities of course are often mistaken.  This is why the silencing of minorities is necessarily dangerous.  Criticism and dissent are the indispensable antidote to major delusions.  (Civil Liberties & Majority & Minority & Criticism & Dissent)  Alan Barth

 

 

5,380.  Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty.  The obedient must be slaves.  (Civil Liberties & Dissent & Slave)  Henry David Thoreau  

 

 

5,424.  See, the greatest sports title mean nothing, mister, if you cannot be free, see.  Boys in Vietnam are throwing away, you may say, their lives.  I haven’t did that much.  They are dying today to free somebody they don’t know.  I’m still living.  So what in the hell is a heavyweight title and a few sneaker dollar bills for my people’s freedom?  (Freedom & Boxing & Vietnam & Dissent & United States)  Muhammad Ali, television interview

 

 

29,585. Why should me and so-called Negros go ten-thousand miles away from home and America to drop bombs and bullets on other innocent brown people who has never bothered us?  And I will say directly, No, I will not go.  (United States & Boxing: Ali & Vietnam & Dissent & United States)  Muhammad Ali

 

 

5,548.  I think it only makes sense to seek out and identify structures of authority, hierarchy, and domination in every aspect of life, and to challenge them; unless a justification for them can be given, they are illegitimate, and should be dismantled, to increase the scope of human freedom.  (Freedom & Authority & Dissent & Inquiry)  Noam Chomsky

 

 

9,111.  I was never aware of any other option but to question everything.  (Philosophy & Question & Dissent)  Noam Chomsky

 

 

49,384.  Mere sparks can ignite a popular movement that may seem dormant.  (Protest & Dissent & Opposition & Solidarity & Revolution)   Professor Noam Chomsky

 

 

5,550.  Free societies ... are societies in motion, and with motion comes tension, dissent, friction.  Free people strike sparks, and those sparks are the best evidence of freedom’s existence.  (Freedom & Dissent & Protest)  Salman Rushdie
 

 

5,553.  The state can’t give you freedom, and the state can’t take it away.  You’re born with it, like your eyes, like your ears.  Freedom is something you assume, then you wait for someone to try to take it away.  The degree to which you resist is the degree to which you are free.  (Freedom & State & Protest & Struggle & Dissent)  Utah Phillips 

 

 

6,150.   The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you from acting in what you sincerely and reflectively hold to be the best interests of your community.  (Society & Community & Dissent)  Susan Sontag, At the Same Time: Essays and Speeches
 

 

12,789.  Dissent and disagreement characterise the Church from its earliest days.  (Christianity & Dissent)  Michael Portillo, Christianity: A History: Rome s1e2

 

 

28,995.  I’ll tell you what ‘anti-American’ is.  It’s what governments and their vested interested call those who honour America by objecting to war and the theft of resources and believing in all of humanity.  There are millions of these anti-Americans in the United States.  They are ordinary people who belong to no elite and who judge their government in moral terms, though they would call it common decency.  They are not vain.  They are the people with a wakeful conscience, the best of America’s citizens.  They can be counted on.  They were in the south with the Civil Rights movement, ending slavery.  They were in the streets, demanding an end to the wars in Asia.  Sure, they disappear from view now and then, but they are like seeds beneath the snow.  I would say they are truly exceptional.  (United States & Dissent)  Martha Gellhorn, conversation with John Pilger

 

 

29,292.  America’s campuses began to buzz with activism ... One hundred people rallied in Washington.  (United States & Dissent & Protest & Demonstration)  Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States VII: Johnson, Nixon and Vietnam: Reversal of Fortune
