Michael: [about the unrest in Cuba] We saw a strange thing on our way here. Some rebels were being arrested, and instead of being arrested, one of them pulled the pin on a grenade he had hidden in his jacket. He took himself and the captain of the command with him.Guest: Ah, the rebels are insane!Michael: Maybe. But the soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren’t.Hyman Roth: What does that tell you?Michael: They can win. (The Godfather 2)

I don’t know if most people have looked up from Dancing With The Stars long enough to notice, but there are protests in the streets in London, in Greece, in New York.

I’m just saying, this is one that we should pay attention to, people don’t take to the barricades until they feel they have no choice.
