Daniel Ellsberg - The Courage We Need

from The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers

The courage we need is not the courage, the fortitude, to be obedient in the service of an unjust war, to help conceal lies, to do our job by a boss who has usurped power in his acting as an outlaw government. It is the courage, at last, to face honestly the truth and the reality of what we are doing in the world, and act responsibly to change it.
