Competeing quote:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
--Edmund Burke

That's a favorite of mine.

I personally find Elie Wiesel to be a fatuous ass. He's made a successful career out of his own victimization, but now proceeds to support injustice against other peoples.

On my "Fit to Print?" blog I critiqued an essay Wiesel wrote for the New York Times last year; if you're not sure what I'm talking about you can look it up. I think my title was "Equal Time for Lies."
