Right where we are, there we must dig our trenches, and win or die.

October 11, 2010

a Voltairine de Cleyre quote.

Taken entirely out of context, of course, but I think it relates to the thesis.

Fuller quote:
When America passed the fugitive slave law compelling men to catch their fellows more brutally than runaway dogs, Canada, aristocratic, unrepublican Canada, still stretched her arms to those who might reach her. But there is no refuge upon earth for the enslaved sex. Right where we are, there we must dig our trenches, and win or die.
