10. it's true.

Often a major pain of their lives that fuels their anxiety and/or depression is fear that their contempt for illegitimate authorities will cause them to be financially and socially marginalized
Contempt for authority can ruin a person financially for real. It's not an unfounded fear at all. Being able to tolerate a horrible boss is a survival skill. Standing up to authority at the wrong place and time can ruin things pretty quick. I should know. There's a time to keep to your mouth shut.
