Reicher Mann und armer Mann standen da und sahn sich an. Und der Arme sagte bleich: »Wär ich nicht arm, wärst du nicht reich«.

You are our first defence.

Here’s a story you might recognise, repeated throughout history.

An external threat brews afar, but only a few worry.

Most people don’t want to worry. “Those armies are big, but they’re far, and they don’t care about our village.” The Few get ostracised. They stay quiet and unaware of each other.

As the offending army grows, The Few leave to prepare a simple geurilla defence in the mountain passes, and to hide their families.

By the time the army is on the march, the villagers have changed from “it’ll never happen” to “there’s nothing we can do.”

It seems more futile now, but it’s still not too late. They join in the mountains. The villagers are now grateful to The Few. They’ve provided the conditions for defence.

And sometimes, the tide starts to turn.

Our era isn’t one of mountain passages, it’s one of encryption, privacy and information protection. Our Few are those who know about GPG, Linux and CyanogenMod. We’re the ones who can install tracking blockers for our moms, explain what Facebook actually does to our families, and help people encrypt their stuff.

History is full of people who did what was futile but necessary. Futility becomes nascence, becomes momentum.

We have a say in the world we want to live in. But we’re the only ones who can start. If we don’t do something, nobody will.

Freedom of expression is like the air we breathe, we don't feel it, until people take it away from us.

For this reason, Je suis Charlie, not because I endorse everything they published, but because I cherish the right to speak out freely without risk even when it offends others.
And no, you cannot just take someone's life for whatever he/she expressed.

Hence this "Je suis Charlie" edition.

“Ich glaube, dass Freiheit keine konstante Wesenseigenschaft ist, die wir haben oder auch nicht haben. Vermutlich gibt sie es in Wirklichkeit nur als Akt unserer Selbstbefreiung, wenn wir von unserer Freiheit, wählen zu können, Gebrauch machen. Jeder Schritt im Leben, der den Grad der Reife des Menschen erhöht, erhöht auch seine Fähigkeit, die freimachende Alternative zu wählen.”

― (1992q [1965]: Credo eines Humanisten, in: Erich-Fromm-Gesamtausgabe (GA) Band XI, S. 595.)
