Quote Brought to You by:
The indifference of the People is the opportunity of the despot. It is as true as that the whole is greater than the part, and the maxim is so old that it is trite – it is laughable. It is neglected and disused for the sake of some new ingenious and complicated theory, some wonderful scheme of reorganization, the fact remains, nevertheless, simple, fundamental, everlasting. The People have but to say ‘No’ and not the strongest tyranny, political, religious, or financial, that was ever organized, could survive one week.
– Frank Norris, The Octopus
(The emphasis is all mine).
A long quote but one that really gets me thinking. Even though it is referring to a struggle between farmers and a railroad union, the sentiment behind the words is still relevant. Especially in today’s society.
Happy blogging everyone! 🙂
