The U.S. has a long and legal history of peaceful protests. Here are some famous quotes.
“Those who already walk submissively will say there is no cause for alarm. But submissiveness is not our heritage. The First Amendment was designed to allow rebellion to remain as our heritage. … “— US Supreme Court, Laird v. Tatum, 408 US 1, page 28
“But freedoms of speech and of press, of assembly, and of worship may not be infringed on such slender grounds. They are susceptible of restriction only to prevent grave and immediate danger to interests which the State may lawfully protect.”— U.S. Supreme Court in WV Board of Educaton v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)
“… And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”— Thomas Jefferson on November 13, 1787 letter to future Congressman William S. Smith
The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.— Albert Einstein, translated from Einstein’s tribute to Pablo Casals (30 March 1953)
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”— President Kennedy in his address to the diplomatic corps on March 13, 1962.
“When the government violates the people’s rights, insurrection is, for the people and for each portion of the people, the most sacred of the rights and the most indispensible of duties.”
— Marquis de Lafayette, partially quoting the 1793 French Declaration of the Right of Man
“Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason toward my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.”
― Patrick Henry, speech at the Second Virginia Convention that ended with his quote “Give me liberty or give me death”
“Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it.”
“No man survives when freedom fails, …
And those who cry ‘appease, appease’ Are hanged by those they tried to please.”
— Hiram Mann
TOLERANCE OF EVIL IS EVIL
Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.”
Veritatem qui non libere pronunciat proditor est veritatis.
He who does not freely speak the truth is a betrayer of truth.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, (1914):
“To sin by silence, when we should protest, makes cowards of men.”
United States v. Prudden, 424 F.2d 1021:
“Silence is equated with fraud if there is a moral duty to speak.”
Edmund Burke on April 23, 1770 wrote:
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”
John Philpot Curran warned in 1790:
“The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he breaks, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime.”
John Stuart Mill, in an address at the University of St. Andrew (1 February 1867)
“Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
Thomas Jefferson’s inscription on his ring:
“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”
“The world is in greater peril from those who tolerate or encourage evil than from those who actually commit it.”
It is a crime to fail to report crimes.
Only you can erase the thin blue line. You do this by filing criminal charges against the backup witnesses who did not report the crimes of corrupt cops. Or prosecutors, or judges. Or protests.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Your rights will continue to disappear if you do nothing.
If you don’t learn how to stand up to the beast, you will soon need a mark to buy or sell. (This was mentioned by Bill Gates: “So eventually there will be this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global reopening up”).
Learn to stand up to the beast before it is too late.
Protests and petitions for redress of grievances are our heritage.

Prepare for the future.
Everyone can sense the upcoming chaos, inflation, civil war, forced vaccines, food shortages, intrusive contact tracing, AND the mandatory proof of immunity that eventually becomes yet another permission to buy or sell.
Did you know also, that perilous times shall come? (Second Timothy 3:1) Christians face persecutions, arrest, prison, appear before authorities for Christ name’s sake. Delivered up to be afflicted. Delivered up to counsels. Testify to authorities. (Luke 21:12-15, Matthew 24:9, Mark 13:9,11).
I recommend an online law course. Learn the procedures that run the courts BEFORE you are thrown into a cage and forced to prove your innocence.
Obedience to false authority is mutiny against lawful authority.
