This is the distinction in the analyses between nonviolent coercion in which he has to resign, but he's forced into it, and disintegration when the regime simply falls apart. There's nobody left with enough power to resign.

— Gene Sharp

In Tunisia the Americans had to pay a stiff price for their experience, but it brought rich dividends.
