If You Are Neutral in Situations of Injustice, You Have Chosen the Side of the Oppressor

I love the thought - apropos for these days of Trump - but I also like the absurdity of the pigeon.

I remember seeing the New Zealand Pigeon, second-largest pigeon in the world, oppressed by its second-growth forest canopy in Westland, on the South Island of New Zealand. The New Zealand Pigeon was made for open forest canopies, but it's miserable today in its crowded new world, remade by loggers decades ago.

Do not be neutral. Free the New Zealand Pigeon. Stop logging. Or trim away some of that undergrowth, or something.
