current reading:

“…the power-holders want us to believe that power is top-down, that we must be passive, that violence is the most powerful force. What power-holders would want us to know that the power is, in fact, in our hands? That instead of being intimidated by police, military, corporate leaders, media tycoons, and politicians, if the people were to find out that we give away our power through compliance, we could take it back again through noncooperation?”*
