What Is a Dissident?

Painting by Francesco Boneri: Christ Drives the Money-lenders out of the Temple (c. 1610)

Dissidents are not necessarily those with the strongest minds, but rather those with the weakest stomachs; the mind can rationalize anything, but the stomach can take only so much.

Czesław Miłosz, paraphrased

Painting by Francesco Boneri: Christ Drives the Money-lenders out of the Temple (c. 1610)
