Responsible Citizenship Quotes By Laurent Dubois

By creating a society in which all people, of all colors, were granted freedom and citizenship, the Haitian Revolution forever transformed the world.

In this sense we are all descendents of the Haitain Revolution, and responsible to these ancestors. — Laurent Dubois

Responsible Citizenship Quotes By Michel Foucault

Because they claim to be concerned with the welfare of whole societies, governments arrogate to themselves the right to pass off as mere abstract profit or loss the human unhappiness that their decisions provoke or their negligence permits.

The suffering of men must never be a mere silent residue of policy. It grounds an absolute right to stand up and speak to those who hold power. — Michel Foucault
