A quote by Edmund Burke on evil is the topic of this blog post
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke
“Very perceptive quote by Edmund Burke whose truth cannot be denied as anyone with even a minimal knowledge of history is aware of numerous situations where evil triumphed only because many good men and women did nothing. On the other hand history shines with examples of situations where the mere fact that good men and women took action meant that evil was thwarted. Inaction in the face of evil is tacit acceptance of evil when you really stop and think about it. Evil cannot long thrive where men and women of good character reside and are willing to stand up to it. Evil requires at least the passive acceptance of the great majority in order to survive. While some might consider the truth of this quote as depressing I for one do not. On the contrary I firmly believe that it is inspiring in that evil can be defeated anytime and anywhere that good men and women decide to finally take action against it. You cannot get more inspiring than that.” Stan Burman
