Martin L King On Freedom And Oppression

Martin-Luther-KingMartin L King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

History is the long and tragic story of the fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light and give up their unjust posture; but … groups are more immoral than individuals.

We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
