[is it possible to be neutral?]

Desmond Tutu quote about being neutral in situations of injustice...

For an intriguing discussion of whether it is possible to remain neutral between two opposing sides and to simply seek to build bridges between them, with much reference to Martin Luther King and the ways in which he approached this, check out this article:

Is Prophetic Neutrality Possible? by David W. Congdon

A related quote from Elie Wiese: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
