    that slaves (and women) got back at their masters in years gone by. There would be things you could do (or more likely leave undone) while smiling obsequiously that would create an environment of constant irritation for the ruling class. If they don't explicitly tell you to do something, you don't do it. If you notice a problem, you stay quiet about it.
