"When you develop a universal altruism your loyalties are far beyond your tribe, your race, your class, your nation even. When you fail to have a universal altruism you’ll say ‘my nation, right or wrong.’ Well, I’m not going to support my nation when it’s wrong, because my first loyalty is to humanity and to God. I don’t care who gets upset about it, I’m not going to support the United States of America in Vietnam, because I’m absolutely convinced that she’s wrong. Whenever your loyalties are narrow you can’t question your nation when it’s wrong."
—Martin Luther King Jr. (1967)
