It's too painful to hear the truth.

This is interesting, but grossly over simplistic. The millions are not an undifferentiated mass - "a big nothing, full of interchangeable people" - responding to one tiny, bullying stimulus, and if you want to see what it looks like when the people revolt every time they disagree with the ruling faction du jour one only need look at any third-world paradise that has a coup every couple of years.

Yeah Julie. I lived in the Canal Zone '66-'69. As I recall Panama had three revoluciĆ³ns while I was there. During one of them, the U.S. hid the dictator du jour and his family in a C-118 at Howard AFB for three days while the uprising went on. I was on the hook to fly him to Miami if things went south, but the insurrectionists lost that one, he went home, and I was off the hook.
