Either way...

What kind of person allows himmself to be the victim of theft? To be enslaved?

A virtuous man cannot hesitate to answer: Not the kind that deserves liberty.

(Unhappy it is ... to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast, and that the once happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice? ---G. Washington)
