Tim DeChristopher, your travails are a gift to us all.
You will not find a more eloquent, courageous and principled moral statement anywhere. This statement is on a moral par with Martin Luther King’s letter from the Birmingham jail, and he goes to prison for all of us. Coming on the heels of my post regarding Peak Oil, I am compelled to post this statement, made by Tim DeChristopher to his sentencing federal judge. It is the measure of moral action that each of us should be prepared to undertake, and to accept, as the cost of taking right action.
