Translation of Peter Joseph - Defining Peace

01:26:51,546 --> 01:26:57,009
It will not come from the state or as they say 'speaking truth to power'

I can't figure out what he means by "speaking truth to power". "Speak the truth to those in power" or "Speak the truth to gain power"/

You can have a look here: SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER
I believe that's where the phrase comes from.
And some explanations: Urban Dictionary, January 23: White Girl Wasted
