49. respect and authority are a peaceful alternative in lieu of violence...
but sometimes some groups forget their respect and appreciation of authority for the "other side" in any social equation. this eventually leads to temporary repression and then finally a healthy physical reminder of why respect and authority was given in the first place...

life in cycles, we've all seen this shit before.
