“The moment we stop fighting for each other is the moment we lose our humanity”

“The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment we lose our humanity” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
             
“The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment that we lose our humanity” was said in the movie 2012 (released in 2009) by the character Adrian Helmsley (played by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor). The quotation became popular again in 2020 during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
           
“The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment we lose our humanity”—without the second “that”—is the usual (but incorrect) version of the quotation. “The moment we stop fighting for each other…that’s the moment we lose our humanity” was posted on Twitter by chicanery on November 12, 2009. “‘The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment we lose our humanity’ Quote from the movie 2012” was posted on Twitter by Dzifah R. Hiatsi on November 13, 2009.
   
Another popular version has both “that” words removed. “‘the moment we stop fighting for each other is the moment we lose our humanity’ #quote” was posted on Twitter by Amy Arsamakova on August 24, 2009. “The moment we stop fighting for each other is the moment we lose our humanity” was posted on Twitter by Ryan Knight on April 17, 2020.
     
       
Wikipedia: 2012 (film)
2012 is a 2009 American science fiction disaster film directed and written by Roland Emmerich. It was produced by Harald Kloser, Mark Gordon, and Larry J. Franco, and written by Kloser and Emmerich. The film stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oliver Platt, Thandiwe Newton, Danny Glover, and Woody Harrelson. Based on the 2012 phenomenon, its plot follows geologist Adrian Helmsley (Ejiofor) and novelist Jackson Curtis (Cusack) as they experience an eschatological sequence of events including earthquakes, volcano eruptions, megatsunamis and a global flood, all of which were imagined by subscribers to the hypothesis.

This quote from the movie 2012 seems very apt for our present situation:

Trucker protests are good for U.S.-Canada border trade. They will help Justin Trudeau realize you can not take away the right to choose.“The moment we stop fighting for each other, that’s the moment we lose our humanity.” @CBSNews
