From The Time When Our Ancestors Were Men

Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What would you do without freedom? Will you fight? Fight? Against that? No, we will run; and we will live. Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you'll live -- at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!

That is my all-time favorite movie line ever, but how applicable is it to us? I wish there was an entire army of us to even be in a situation where we could have doubts about marching on the corrupt politicians, but there is no such army. Consequently, I don't see how that movie line has any foundation in reality to us, I regret to say.
