The Choice

"Any time ordinary people are given the chance to choose, the choice is the same: freedom, not tyranny; democracy, not dictatorship; the rule of law, not the rule of the secret police."

Quoted by Natan Sharansky, Chapter One of The Case For Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny and Terror.
