As far as Maslow's Hierarchy is concerned I basically agree with it. You can't really fight in a revolution if you're hungry. You don't know if you're being scammed if you can't read. The basics must be taken care of first before you can move onto bigger things. We have whole industries dedicated to this in the West because most (not all which people tend to forget) of our citizens have the time and income to be to be higher up on this pyramid although I think a lot of people aren't necessarily looking for self-actualization. I think they've lost their purpose and meaning in life and are desperate to find something to fulfill them.
