JP trans. of a Daniel Webster quote.
Yet again, a low pressure zone has turned up...
Repression is the seed of revolution. - Daniel Webster
(圧政 also means oppression, despotism, and power politics)
There's something familiar about 圧. Sure, we all know 土, but what's it doing in that half-box? That half-box is the radical.
Radicals will make your kanji-studying life a lot more pleasant. If you can learn to recognize them, suddenly you'll be familiar with a lot more kanji.
This radical, of the first top horizonatl stroke followed by a left-leaning downward stroke on the left, is called "Gan-dare" 厂. It looks like a roof and the left wing of a house, or a cliff if you like.
Others with this radical include 反 of 反対, 原 of 秋葉原, and 灰 of 灰皿.
