"The objector and the rebel who raises his voice
against what he believes to be the injustice
of the present and the wrongs of the past
is the one who hunches the world along."

Objectors and rebels may keep the world moving in the right direction, but it's more positive activists that keep it moving.

    Thinking of PeTA, they hunch the world along too, but with negative activism.

    Any kind of responsible and intelligent dissent that helps to make people aware of the dangers of the status quo is important. But what I like about the quote is the phrase, "hunches the world along." I admire the use of a word/phrase that no one has ever articulated in the same way-at least I have never heard this before.

    I think I agree with EGL. I'll give Darrow a couple of extra stars for semantics, but protesters still only serves to cause intelligent discourse, not actually hunch the world along. We need them. but it takes the doers to get anywhere

    It is the rebel that breaks the chains of conformity.

    It should be hard to change the world. Things are the way they are because the wisdom of generations have come to the conclusion that it is for the best. That is the basis of conservatism. It is not, however, universally true, so you still need the rebels to prod a resistant world along for changes that ought to be made.
