comfort under bad govt vs. discomfort under good govt?

A cool quote cited to open Lewis Lapham's essay in Harper's this month (hat tip: Synchrocandy):

“Few men are so disinterested as to prefer to live in discomfort under a government which they hold to be right rather than live in comfort under one which they hold to be wrong.”

- C.V. Wedgwood, The Thirty Years War (pg. 19)

Which do you prefer?
