I sit on a man’s back, choking him, and making him carry me

I sit on a man’s back, choking him, and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by any means possible, except getting off his back.
— Leo Tolstoy; Writings on Civil Disobedience and Nonviolence (1886)

I avoid overt politicking, so an image of dollars will suffice.
