Goddamnit, DON'T BE THERE.
A lot of good people are getting weeweed up because police broke up a protest.
You have to do what works. THIS IS NOT GOING TO WORK.
"Rights" do not exist, or more precisely "rights" exist for protesters who agree with Deepstate. You might believe otherwise, but this is REALITY.
Protesting AGAINST Deepstate will have ONLY ONE RESULT: VASTLY MORE TYRANNY AND GENOCIDE. You will NOT win. You will lose MORE than before. You will CAUSE MORE DEATHS.
The way out has three paths:
1. Good people quietly resuming work, and customers quietly realizing they aren't going to die. This seems to be happening in many places, judging from reports in various twitter and facebook pages. I've noticed it indirectly here, as street traffic has recovered from zero to 1/3 normal to about 1/2 normal.
2. Bureaucrats following Parkinson's Law. Bureaucracies must grow and must consume tax revenue. As tax revenue dries up, bureaucrats will start pushing governors and mayors in the right direction. Bureaucrats have all the power. They have been perfecting every type of power maneuver from go-slow to blackmail for many centuries. No governor can starve the bureaucrats and survive.
3. Ideally, one or two sane governors decisively and officially breaking the ice jam. Texas has made noises but hasn't actually DONE anything yet.
4. Later addendum: Sheriffs have been doing
what bureaucrats normally do. Passively refusing to enforce tyrannical monstrosity. Not enough of them to make a real difference yet.
