    LATIN translation HELP! Need a human latin translator

    machine translation is just not cutting it.

    I want to make a logo for a specific purpose, and within it include in Latin JFK's monumental:

    "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable."

    I need this in Latin for the logo.

    The closest I could come up with using machine translation and synonyms is:

    Qui planto pacis insurgo non validus, planto vehemens insurgo necesse.

    but clearly that doesn't cut it.

    Any latin experts out there can help?

Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    Too bad the Latin version of Wikiquote is so small.

    <g> thanks! Yes, I agree. I am still hoping for a Latin expert here. I could do it in Greek myself, but Latin is what I want for this logo. It will be along the lines of "De oppresso liber"

    Surely we have some latin-o-philes?
