TOLFA Segment 18, Question 1

Segment 18 says not to bother with politics, demonstrations etc. Why not? Won't they hasten the day when government evaporates? Of course; politicans respond only to big popular protests, for they fear nothing except the probable loss of votes. To ignore such would be a tactical mistake.
They probably would help, but I have a life to live and a living to earn and a family to raise and the TOLFA promise was that I'd not need to spend a lot of time in that kind of thing.
It would not hasten the collapse, it would postpone it. It would be like a victim saying to her rapist "Please, kind sir, leave me be!" instead of spraying him with mace; demanding action means that the actor must remain strong! Universal re-education, via TOLFA, will cause the institution of government peacefully to implode, and we want nothing less.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, go to Question 2.
