“Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid”

U.S. President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) said in a speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington (DC) on March 20, 1981:

“But from these terrible places have come survivors—witnesses to the triumph of the human spirit over the mystique of state power, prisoners whose spiritual values made them the rulers of their guards. With their survival, they brought us ‘the secret of the camps’—a lesson for our time and for any age: Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid.”

Reagan was referring to prison camps in the Soviet Union. “Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
