Living in Truth 

This is brilliant stuff:

"Living in truth - directly doing in your immediate surroundings, what you think needs doing, saying what you think is true and needs saying , acting the way you think people should act - is a form of protest, Havel admits, against living in the lie, and so those who try to live in truth are indeed an opposition. But that is neither all they are or the main thing they are. Before living in truth is a protest, it is an affirmation."
From The Unconquerable World by Jonathan Schell

Quoted by Chris Corrigan in a remarkable piece, whose full significance I'm still digesting, found via Jon Husband.
