how to resist

3 Allies

Yesterday died: Nelson Mandela (1918-2013), R.I.P. – he knew how to resist with perseverance. There were even more of these extraordinary people: the German Martin Luther – or the American Dr. Martin Luther King. There was Henry David Thoreau – and Julian Assange. There was Mikhail Gorbachev – or once the German philosopher Immanuel Kant (“If a man makes himself a worm, he must not complain when he is trodden on.”). And there are currently Edward Snowden (in Moscow) and his supporter at NSA uncovering Sarah Harrison (currently in Berlin). Asked how her phone was secure, she replies: “I have no phone!”
