"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. Man is the only Patriot."
Patriots is a fungible tag. You could even use the tag zealots, and that could cover just about any human emotional need.
