The Law says:

Peace at what price? Are we not kidding ourselves? Do we sacrifice our principles in the name of diplomacy? Can evil ever be compromised?



Song lyrics

Appeasement
Appeasement
Dressed up as
Political compromise
It’s immediate
The benefits seem immediate - And popular
And tangible - profitable
Peace at what price?
But is it not an illusion, are we not kidding ourselves?
- Good for elections
Not just staving off the day of reckoning?
Can evil
Ever be compromised?
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Do we sacrifice our principles?
In the name of diplomacy
Tolerate intolerance
Shake hands with those who hate us
Can they ever be satisfied?
Could a foreign flag yet fly over Paris
London, Rome and Washington
Do they want to take over, dominate their neighbor, does their teaching
Demand it, their culture require it?
Has political correctness
Made free men blind?
Will democracy last long, or will it waste, exhaust and
murder itself. Will democracies commit suicide?
The enemy know this and they teach their flock
The free world’s decadent
And weak and soft
And hedonistic and corrupt
And they should be able to defeat it.
Let’s hope they underestimate the will, the resolve
Of the free world to defend itself
That democracies are up to it and strong,
Stay strong.
Don’t submit, surrender, don’t succumb.
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on
Evil will live on, evil will live on

These lines are the 3rd and 4th lines from the famous "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears" speech from Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar.

The evil that men do lives after them
The good is oft interred with their bones.
