A Great Quote From The Great J. Michael Straczynski (Hat tip

Reblogged from

No, YOU move

"Doesn't matter what the press says.  Doesn't matter what the 
politicians or the mobs say.  Doesn't matter if the whole country 
decides that something wrong is something right.  This nation 
was founded on one principle above all else:   The requirement 
that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the 
consequences.  When the mob and the press and the whole 
world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree 
beside the river of truth and tell the whole world -- No, YOU move."

Yes. I am a JMS fanboy. I have been since 1993 when I first saw 
the pilot to the series Babylon 5. That series really explores the 
themes of order vs. chaos, the conflict between authoritarianism 
(totalitarianism) and free will (liberty). Take the time to watch all 
five seasons with an eye to what is going on today.
