Imagine this and would you?

You are living in Germany a few miles away from a concentration camp. You know what is going on, would you speak out? Knowing you would most likely ' disapear  ' ?

Do you realize how many people did after they were still allowed to come here and the USA did nothing. I only know this from personal experience with a Berlin couple and their friends who happened to be Jewish. I would speak out in the same way but not in the country. Who ya gonna tell? Goebbels?

If I was going to speak out, I'd have an escape plan laid out and my house laced with firearms and explosives. But yes, I would speak out, and then disappear... on my own terms.

Fear is no excuse to tolerate injustice. Cowards.

And what might that do? not stop the killing of jews, but start a hunt for you.

You show fear, you hide from them, they know who's in control. You confront them, fight them, show an iron resolve and they will lose power over their people.

Morale is one hell of a weapon.

Speaking out is dumb. What you do is march around hailing Hitler or whatever, then late at nite go out and dig holes under the fences.

Of course no one knows what they'd do in that situation, but I'm pretty sure I'd do something like that, I'm rebellious without a cause, I imagine I'd be more so if I had a reason.

You don't speak out publicly but you what ever you can to defeat the evil clandestinely.

Well, in that specific situation, or like in the French resistance (which I highly suggest anyone reading up on who seriously thinks all the French are pussies.)

But here in the U.S. we can speak up all we want, that's what makes democracies superior... least in my opinion.

Side: No

"three men behind the enemy are worth more than fifty in front".

an inside attack would be much more effective.

That is a very good point, upvote for you.

Speaking out no matter how good of a person you are would only lead to your demise in a short period of time.

Wouldn't matter your political standings either. Hitler threw many top guns in his army into jail or worse concentration camps as punishment for merely ' speaking out '.

yeah, i hate it when people risk their lives "speaking out". if you pledge your allegiance, you become a source from the inside for the resistance. duh.

I understand fully why you would speak out which is why I would not. That will only get you a more speedy death note, or you could become a target. A lot of people speak out but at the end of the day how far does your vote really get you besides annihilation?

If you lived in Germany you might be for killing the Jews. But then again, you might not. You most likely would though. So it kind of depends.

Side: No
