WHERE THE INDEPENDENTS ARE.....A daily news feed of, by and for Independents across America.
“Progress is born of agitation,” declared Debs, and his call to activism is as meaningfultoday as it was a century ago. For Debs, activism for social justice was a moralimperative. When the judge sentenced him to prison for opposing World War I, hedeclared:“Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up mymind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now,that while there is a lower class, I am in it; and while there is a criminal element I am ofit; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.”
Just to set the record straight. Harry Kresky didn't say any of the above. I found the entire passage on the internet and wanted to share it with Hankster readers.
