Quote from Eric Hoffer,

"It is doubtful if the oppressed ever fight for freedom.
They fight for pride and power -- power to oppress others.
The oppressed want above all to imitate their oppressors;
they want to retaliate."

(1902-1983) American author, philosopher, awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom
