Resisting

I just saw on a news website a collection of photos taken at the execution of some Frenchmen who worked for the Nazis during the war. It got me thinking about how likely I would be to resist an evil government. I know that I don't participate in public protests against things I think the US government is doing wrong. What would I do if the police were to start putting the opposition in jail?

I'm throwing this out to the forum to see if any of us, who are free thinkers, really feel that we would have been active in the resistance during the war.
