All revolution begins in the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised. They're called, initially, cry-babies and blowhards. Coal miners didn't keep canaries around for their songs, but they were desperately attentive to occasions of canary mortality. The metric of people power is in their choice. Currently, one may choose nonparticipation, a deceptively powerful option. When that choice is removed, finally then, the pushback commences. They will never win. Hell, if there were enough prison space, there'd be no homelessness.
