Quote from Ludwig von Mises,

"Violent resistance against the power of the state
is the last resort of the minority in its effort
to break loose from the oppression of the majority. ...
The citizen must not be so narrowly circumscribed in his activities that,
if he thinks differently from those in power,
his only choice is either to perish or
to destroy the machinery of state."
