On Abuses of Power by Public Officials...

Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until 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.
Frederick Douglass, civil rights activist
Aug. 4, 1857

Any power that can be abused will be abused.
Tyranny Law #1

Abuse always expands to fill the limits of resistance to it.
Tyranny Law #2

If people don't resist the abuses of others, they will have no one to resist the abuses of themselves, and tyranny will prevail.
Tyranny Law #3
