"The general rule of thumb for rebellion is that revolutions occur when those who preserve the current system
are sufficiently dissatisfied with their rewards that they are willing to look for someone new to take care of them. On the other hand, revolts are defeated
through suppression of the people—always an unpleasant task—so coalition members need to receive enough benefits from their leader that they are
willing to do horribly distasteful things to ensure that the existing system is maintained. If they do not get enough goodies under the current system, then
they will not stop the people from rising up against the regime."
