Do nothing is the choice of people who are afraid. Do nothing
is what you do if too many people have to agree. Do nothing is what
happens if one person with no upside has to accept downside
responsibility for a change. What's in it for them to do anything? So
they do nothing.
The key moment for an insurgent, then, is the time of "pick anything."
When people have to pick, they have to confront some of the fear and
organizational barriers that lead to the status quo.
