Protecting Fundamental Rights

 "This dreadful history shows the necessity of standing up to categorization and conspiracy peddling, of refusing to turn a blind eye or a deaf ear to defamation. There can be no drawing of distinctions between citizens when it comes to fundamental human rights, no hair-splitting about who gets to have them and who does not. In fact, such rights are for the people we fear or dislike because they are the people who need them."

- Peter Hayes in Why? Explaining the Holocaust
