Everyday Dissidence

Donald J. Trump’s cousin out of wedlock.

Dissent in its many gradations is disagreeable, doesn’t win popularity contests. If you had criticized slavery or child labor or advocated women’s suffrage in America in the wrong time or place, you could have been handcuffed, and lucky at that… Dissent can be a dicey business. If it’s not at least a bit uncomfortable, it’s probably not real dissidence.

—Edward Hoagland

Inspiration in Dissidence

You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.
—Robert A. Heinlein
If This Goes On—
What is a rebel? A man who says no: but whose refusal does not imply a renunciation.
—Albert Camus
