14. The call for peace is the accepted norm, however, what about the nation's founders?

They not only protested, they dumped the tea in the harbor. When their demands for justice were ignored they didn't quietly go back to their homes. The fact is they armed themselves and fought those who would enslave them vowing to never submit. "Give me liberty, or give me death" was their answer. If it had not been for their resolve we could very well still be vassals of the nobility. Seems to me that we are quickly becoming vassals of the oligarchs with the same results.
