Bertrand Russell: I cannot be a silent witness to murder or torture

"Whatever happens, I cannot be a silent witness to murder or torture. Anyone who is a partner in this is a despicable individual. I am sorry I cannot be moderate about it."

- Bertrand Russell quoted in The New York Times Biographical Service, Vol. I (1970), p. 294
(said by Russell "in the spring of 1967").
