    I've been doing a lot of reading about previous struggles.

    It's an interesting phenomenon.  It seems you're very versed in the history of previous social struggles and would probably agree with this observation...

    A very large segment of the oppressed population somehow comes to accept and embrace the narrative that's handed down from their oppressors.  It happens in every era when it comes to the struggle for social justice.

    But eventually many come around and join the movement once they run out of justifications in the face of rampant corruption and oppression.
