"In Germany first they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. then they came for teh social Democrats, but wasn't a Social Democrat, so I wasn't concerned. then they came for the labor unions, but I wasn't a laborer, so I did nothing. Then they came for the Jews, but being a Christian, I did little. Finally Hitler attaqcked me and the rest of the Church.....and by that time there was no one to be concerned."

- pastor Martin Niemoller, speaking before Congress. Funny how he never mentioned Hitler's persecution of capitalists- maybe because it didn;t exist?
