    They have a dedicated group in large numbers that can turn on the dime and send out emails and make phone calls.

      "Tyranny is always better organized than freedom."

      Charles Péguy

      But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath a heavy reckoning to make, ... there are few die well that die in a battle; ... Now, if these men do not die well, it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it; — Shakespeare, ‘Henry V’
