Today´s Quotation is from Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovich.
Despite what you think you know, most people don´t want to fight, especially when evenly matched. A mob will tear an individual to pieces and a man with a gun and a noble cause is happy to kill ever so many women and children, but risking a fair fight – not so easy. That´s why you see those pissed young men doing the dance of “don´t hold me back” while desperately hoping someone likes them enough to hold them back. Everyone is always so pleased to see the police arrive, because we have to save them whether we like them or not.
