emergency regulations

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on emergency regulations, state of emergency, and revolution

"Emergency regulations," said Feverstone.  "You'll never get the powers we want at Edgestow until the Government declares that a state of emergency exists there."
"Exactly," said Filostrato.  "It is folly to talk of peaceful revolutions...but until there is the disturbance, the firing, the barricades--no one gets powers to act effectively.  There is not enough what you call weight on the boat to steer him."

C.S. Lewis
