Chomsky is certainly correct. Who was it that said words to the effect that all it takes is for good men to do nothing?

I know of a quote by Martin Luther King. Something like: "The silence of good men is worse than bigotted acts." Did you mean that, Joared?

No, that is a different quote, but that is a good one.

A WikiQuote under evil:

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing."
Edmond Burke

I would paraphrase that:

"All that is necessary for democracy to fail is for good men and women to do nothing."
