Enter GHOST and HAMLET
HAMLET
Where wilt thou lead me? speak; I’ll go no further.

Ghost
Mark me.

HAMLET

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.

– Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
