You can't just obey everything without question. If something is wrong then
you have to stand up for it (resist). Unquestionable obedience leads to a
corrupt leader taking advantage of the people and brings about some of the
most horrific tragedies seen throughout time.

Walt is so amazingly right. I don't think his words have rang more true
than in modern society. The Government determines our morals now! It can't
be undone! They (the gov't) screwed themselves into a hole---and now!
nothing can be undone because doing what you felt right got dangerous.
Stalemate, eh?
