by Dewey, John (1978)

Key Passage

“The stronger has contempt for the weaker and refuses to ‘recognize’ his existence. The weaker, rendered desperate by the hopelessness of his case when he contends under rules and with weapons prescribed by the stronger, refuses to abide by the rules and resorts to violence--only to find that by this he has set himself in opposition to all the forces of organized society."
