How free citizens act in the face of government tyranny

The scene in Spain when the police tried to arrest a woman for not wearing a mask.
Some people appear to be directly intervening and forcibly releasing the woman from the grip of the police.  The whole crowd confronts the police together.  Even after the police release the woman the crowd continues to confront them in a non-violent way.  The crowd is chanting “Liberty!  Liberty!  Liberty!”  A few in the crowd are yelling for the police to “get out” and others are calling them “terrorists.”

In the face of the crowd’s unrelenting defiance the police are forced to back down and leave the scene.

Can someone tell me why the Spanish have more cojones that Americans?  Whatever they’ve got, can it be bottled and imported here?
