“I am in revolt…

“I am in revolt against the age-old lie that the majority is always right! I tell you now that the majority is always wrong. Was the majority right when they stood by while Jesus was crucified? Was the majority right when they refused to believe that the earth moved around the sun and let Galileo be driven to his knees like a dog? It takes 50 years for the majority to be right. The majority is never right until it does right.”

–Dr. Stockmann (An Enemy of The People by Henrik Ibsen)

    1. I did! Arthur Miller’s adaptation of it, though. I’m 100% sure we’ve talked about this before. :p I was just reminiscing and decided to look up quotes, and was struck again by how bad-ass and powerful this one is.
