Fighting For Individual Rights
In the Judeo-Christian tradition there is a famous account of a young shepherd named David going out into battle against a giant soldier named Goliath. Goliath was a highly experienced soldier outfitted with the best armor and weapons of the day. It was assumed by everyone that he was invincible and to go out against him with only a slingshot was certain suicide. But David went out to fight the giant, confident he was doing what was right. And at the end of the day, Goliath was dead.
