Rebellion Quotes

Rebellion is a refusal of obedience or order by an individual, groups or organization. It is a protest against the authority and the legal system that disturbs the peace of the society and violates the general rights rather than serving any good. Rebellion is always accompanied by a range of behaviors from civil disobedience and mass nonviolent resistance, to violent and organized attempts to destroy an established authority. However, there can also be a negative side of a rebel which can be more threatening to the society than the actual cause.
