ex-us-ci-ta'-ti-o from Gk. suscitare "to raise, rouse, awaken"

Stirring others by one's own vehement feeling (sometimes by means of a rhetorical question, and often for the sake of exciting anger).
  Can I stand by and let the government trample on my rights? Is that safe? Is that right? Can any of us afford to allow this wrong to continue?
