Being a Protester
It's amazing that such tree-hugging-peace-loving socialists can be so violent. Looking at the protests in Britain today at the G-20 summit, I wondered if this has any affect whatsoever on their causes. Yes, I am for freedom of speech and the right to protest in a democracy, but most of this seems not to really matter. It appears more like a sideshow, a performance of sorts. By the way, many of the most militant protesters during the Civil Rights Movement are now a part of the establishment, wearing tailored pin-stripped suits with manicured nails and closely cropped cuts.
