Be silent. That's the passport for peace. The country belongs to those who shut their minds, learn to unlearn what they once believed, apply their PhDs to save their own skins. The country still thrives, with little yes-men trying to act big — 'no, this cannot; no, that is too sensitive, shut up, you're a dog barking at a hill!' In years to come, we may completely lose our voices, but our skins will be just as thin.
