First they came for the Libraries

First they came for the Libraries
And I did not speak out
Because I did not read

Then they came for the Internet
And I did not speak out
Because I had nothing to hide

Then they came for The Human Rights Act
And I did not speak out
Because I was Privileged

Then they came for Democracy
And I could not speak out
Because it was too late

With apologies to Martin Niemoller (1892-1984)
