I would reject it as the most contemptible evil, I would fight it with
every power I possess, I would fight the whole of mankind, if one
minute were all I could last before I were murdered, I would fight in the full
confidence of the justice of my battle and of a living being's right to
exist. Let there be no misunderstanding about me. If it is now the belief
of my fellow men, who call themselves the public, that their good requires
victims, then I say: The public good be damned, I will have no part of it!"
