In what way has Giles Corey reacted to percieved conflict in the past? Analyse the significance of his observation - Quote below

..."why am i persecuted here? I cannot offer one prosposition, but there is a howling riot of argument."?

Does it means that Giles Corey knows things in the past that other people don't?

We can see that Giles has responded to conflict in the past by suing people.  He says that he has been in court 33 times, I think it is, and every time as a plaintiff.  In other words, he sues people a lot.

I think that what he means by the quote you cite is that people tend not to agree with him.  He is saying that they argue with him a lot.  To me, this means that he is something of a argumentative guy.  He is always in conflict with people and always suing them.  Maybe this is one reason he ends up getting in trouble -- a lot of people do not like him.
