"Speaking generally, one might ask why people submit for so long to
various forms of exploitation, oppression, and domination. And then,
equally mysterious, why they ever stop giving in. Why acquiesce? Why
resist? Looking backward, the indignities and injustices, the
hypocrisies and lies, the corruption and cruelty may seem insupportable.
Yet they are tolerated. Looking backward, the dangers to life, limb, and
livelihood entailed in rebelling may seem too dire to contemplate. Yet
in the teeth of all that, rebellion happens."
Looks like another interesting book. Via Jim Feig.
