Wolf hounds. Because not all of us can be the sheep dog or the shepherd or the lamb. Some of us have to track the predators to their own den and rip their¬†fucking throat out in their own home so the flock can sleep easy at night, knowing that they’ll never have to scrub the blood from the ridges of their palms or clean it from beneath their fingernails because someone’s already cutting a bloody swathe to hell in their name.

No honors given, no medals conferred, not a single burial given if they fall before the teeth of the hunters they hunt. When they die, they do so in misery and in pain, and those sleeping sheep never miss a breath because they never knew about the men and women protecting them, they never knew about the threat to them or their way of life, and they never once caught wind of what could have turned their life upside down if it hadn’t been stopped.

And because of these grim people, these bloody fables and men and women who never existed after the age they decided to give a hard goodbye to those that threatened a way of life?

They’ll never have to.”

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

Thomas Jefferson.
