"The spirit of resistance to government
is so valuable on certain occasions,
that I wish it to be always kept alive.
It will often be exercised when wrong
but better so than not to be exercised at all.
I like a little rebellion now and then.
It is like a storm in the atmosphere."
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President
Letter to Abigail Adams, 22 February 1787
