“Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces.”
-- [Étienne de La Boétie (1530-1563)
French Jurist and Author, from The Politics of Obedience: Discourse of Voluntary Servitude, pp. 50-53]

-- [from The Politics of Obedience: Discourse of Voluntary Servitude, p. 55]
