In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak up, because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I did not speak up, because I was not a Catholic.
Then they came for me... and by that time, there was no one to speak up for anyone.
