Democracy's Miracle - November 2004

 
Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred. Anger can at times be creative. One writes a great poem, a great symphony. One does something special for the sake of humanity because one is angry at the injustice that one witnesses. But indifference is never creative. Even hatred at times may elicit a response. You fight it. You denounce it. You disarm it. . . Indifference elicits no response. Indifference is not a response. Indifference is not a beginning; it is an end.
