Ralph Waldo Emerson, in the mid-19th century, observed that “Society is always taken by surprise at any new example of common sense.” Perhaps Emerson meant that common sense is rather uncommon. What’s more, if common sense was uncommon in Emerson’s time, it certainly is today.
Little by little common sense has been dulled from popular thought. Over time people came to believe that if the right programs were put in place, somehow, they could live in a world without consequences. Similarly, they came to believe if they voted for the right politicians they could get something for nothing.

This is from Martin Luther King’s Letters from a Birmingham Jail (found a thousand places, including http://www.africa.upenn.edu/Articles_Gen/Letter_Birmingham.html The below is an excerpt, and not full context (you can read it at the link above, but it is long-ish).

Just to start, let me quote Albert Einstein who said: “The world will not be destroyed by those who are doing evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”
He also said: “Condemnation without investigation, is the height of ignorance.”
Mark Twain said: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”
JFK a few days before he was killed said: “There is a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.”
