Let the truth prevail

I saw this sticker on a car while driving to work saying "Let the truth prevail." I'm not sure I understood the English but maybe it's just an idea that gets lost especially if you try to delve deeper into the statement in the sticker. My take is that by doing just what the sticker says, you will practically be taking a passive stance like..."give way to the truth" or "let is pass." We would be like bystanders watching truth as it makes its way as it "tries" or "attempts" to prevail. No thanks to you or me. No, we'll just let it prevail. Nevermind the others who will stop at nothing to prevent truth from emerging victorious...

Whatever happened to "making the truth prevail?" This shows commitment. This exemplifies active participation in the scheme of things rather than be a fence sitter. So...shouldn't the sticker be saying instead "Make the truth prevail!" Act and as the shoe commercial says..."Just Do It!"
