Strength to oppose the machine


When I was a child, there was a dictatorship in my country.
In Chilean coats of arms the following motto could be read:
Por la razón o la fuerza (By right or might)
The strength of terror of those in power
ruled under the second part of this motto.
But many stood and strongly opposed
the crimes with the "might of Reason."
To them, I dedicate this drawing.

Wow, I love this one. I think we all need to oppose this philosophy.

As you have said, my friend, we nevermore shall allow this. And as you have suggested, in behalf of those who died defending the people's dignity, the new national motto should be:

"Por la fuerza de la razón"
