First They Came...

First they came for the hackers.     But I never did anything illegal with my computer,         so I didn't speak up. Then they came for the pornographers.     But I thought there was too much smut on the Internet anyway,         so I didn't speak up. Then they came for the anonymous remailers.     But a lot of nasty stuff gets sent from anon.penet.fi,         so I didn't speak up. Then they came for the encryption users.     But I could never figure out how to work PGP anyway,         so I didn't speak up. Then they came for me.     And by that time there was no one left to speak up.

In Germany they first came for the Communists,     and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews,     and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists,     and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics,     and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me -     and by that time no one was left to speak up.
