There are too many who are too quick to leave the field, give up, and throw in the towel. When you do that, you forfeit the game to the other side. And in many cases, the unworthies win. Then they end up in positions of power. Good men and women must always be prepared to see the game through to the very end, and must never allow themselves to concede the game. You have just as much right to be there as the unworthies do, so stake a claim, and make yourself heard.
