Enormous power.
Quotation 323

The public can have, sometimes does have, enormous power. […] David Hume […] pointed out that force is on the side of the governed; those who are governed have the force, if they are willing to and eager to and recognize the possibility to exercise it. Sometimes they do. That’s a major force in who rules the world.

Noam Chomsky (interviewed by Cathy Newman), on Channel 4, May 2016.
