"No matter how vast the skyscrapers and powerful the cannon, no matter how limitless the power of the State, no matter how mighty the empire, all this is only mist and fog and - as such - will be blown away. Only one true force continues to evolve and live; and this force is liberty. To a human, to live means to be free."
Vasily Grossman

An Arab work colleague put it differently.

Unemployed men with no chance of a job have no means of raising money to get married, and so have no chance in arab society of having children. Their genetic line stops with them. so this is a fight by their genes to be propagated.
