“.. after centuries of exploitation, why do people still tolerate being humiliated and enslaved”

“ ..the astonishing thing is not that some people steal or that others occasionally go out on strike, but rather that all those who are starving do not steal as a regular practice, and all those who are exploited are not continually out on strike: after centuries of exploitation, why do people still tolerate being humiliated and enslaved, to such a point, indeed, that they actually want humiliation and slavery not only for others but for themselves?”

―  Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism
