TB on Being Taken Seriously

"There’s nothing like killing people to convince others that they’d damned well better listen to what you have to say. For fifty years, we were never taken seriously. We were a joke and everybody knew it, because we never had the nerve to fire these things,” Morehouse said, putting his pistol away. “We were not willing to spill blood or to put our own lives and bodies at risk for what we claimed to believe, and everyone knew this about us. They held us in contempt, and rightly so. Now we’re pulling triggers, and you will find that all of a sudden, people pay attention.”
