“…so now surrender to them when they shriek that immorality consists of pronouncing moral judgement.  When they yell that it is selfish to be certain that you are right, you hasten to assure them that you’re certain of nothing.  When they shout that it’s immoral to stand on your convictions, you assure them them that you have no convictions whatever.  When the thugs of Europe’s People’s States snarl that you are guilty of intolerance, because you don’t treat your desire to live and their desire to kill you as a difference of opinion–you cringe and hasten to assure them that you are not intolerant of any horror.  When some barefoot bum in some pesthole of Asia yells at you: How dare you be rich–you apologize and beg him to be patient and promise him you’ll give it all away.”

Ayn Rand “Atlas Shrugged”
