As close to a primal sociological statement as I've found.

Ian Welsh wrote this and it's very wise.

"Reasonable accommodations of people’s needs will be made. If they are not, unreasonable ones will be.
Those who cannot understand that will have blood on their hands along with those who decide they have had enough.
Too many have spent too long with generations raised in affluence, scared of losing what they have. They do not understand the lessons of history. And so they will reap what they have sown, though some will be lucky enough to die first.
Their children will see what they have wrought and pay the price of their greed, stupidity and selfishness.
If we will not make an honest attempt at societies which work for all, this future will arise.
Take this as prophecy. And if you are wise, understand that it is prophecy that those who created the social welfare states after WWII were trying to avert."
