“Fighter”

“I’m not just a boxer. I do a lot of reading, a lot of studying. I ask questions, I’ll go out, travel these countries, I’ll watch how their people live, and I learn. And I always asked my mother, I said, ‘Mother, how come is everything white?’… if I threaten you, I’m going to blackmail you. I said, ‘Momma, why don’t they call it ‘whitemail’? They lie too.’ I was always curious. And then this is when I knew something was wrong.” (Muhammad Ali)

The Greatest.

“Conscience”

“One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty. I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.” (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Four steps: (1) collection of the facts to determine whether injustices exist; (2) negotiation; (3) self-purification; and (4) direct action.
