"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,"
Power comes from the consent of the governed. That means you can impose injustices on them but it also means when they yearn for something different and recognize their strength in numbers they can topple the regime.
