I'd be curious to ask the question, if I thought I'd get an honest answer, about whether they would choose revolution if the natural rights of liberty were taken from some identifiable minority of the population.
Ever since I was a kid learning about the Underground Railroad, Id always thought to myself that, hey, never mind what the law was back then; I sure hope Id have chosen to do my part even risking my life to get those slaves out of there. I guess that was also when I was learning about folks who smuggled Jews out of Nazi Germany, which also struck me as something worth risking ones life to do if and when the law comes down on a minority like that. (Am I answering your question right?)
