23. Isn't/shouldn't ...

there be an expected price to be paid for challenging the status quo?

When I, at the age of 7, sat at the Woolworth's counter (with my parents), they told me that I was violated the law and that I should expect to be arrested (the price of breaking the law). They then explained WHY they were going to seat at the counter ... I readily agreed, even though I didn't comprehend the price I might have paid.

What my dinner companion lamented was that todays protests want to raise hell at no personal expense.
