More wisdom from old time America

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. –Fredrick Douglass, 1857 

“Moć ne popušta u ničemu, bez zahteva. Nikad nije i nikad neće. Nadji ono čemu će se ljudi tiho pokoriti, i našao si tačnu meru nepravde koja će im se nametnuti, i koja će se produžiti sve dok se nepravdi ne suprotstave rečima, udarcima ili uz oba sredstva. Granica tiranije je označena trpeljivošću onih koje ugnjetavaju.” Daglas Adams, 1857
