Please stop protesting. Especially if you’re sincere about it.
There’s nothing you can actually do in the real world as a crowd that’ll have any effect whatsoever on the elite. A protest is just a bunch of people complaining, causing headaches for what are in all likelihood very tired city workers who’re facing the same issues.
There’ll be sensational media coverage and helping hands from politicians, yes, but they’re chasing stories and re-elections and the truly powerful don’t see us; we’re on public streets, they’re in private planes.
Protests in their current form will never work. If they’re to ever actually affect change they’re going to have to evolve and resemble something along the likes of crowd-funded hacking and cracking. Things such as DDoS attacks on financial and legal institutes and their infrastructures.
Groups like Anonymous, sites like Wikileaks, people like Snowden, and inventions like Bitcoins have all been effective because they understand that the modern world is fiber optics. This is where the powerful of today operate, online, not in buildings in Lower Manhattan, New York or The White House.
Personally, I find the concept of a digital-age protest refreshing. Torrenting has proven that there’s nothing the law can do to reign in a massive group of people participating in an illegal but publicly acceptable activity that doesn’t physically or emotionally harm anybody. And so there’re no limits to what can be accomplished when millions of people fund a group of people who’re moral, capable, willing, and brave enough to go to the lengths of holding banks hostage and falling on their swords in the aftermath. There are bound to be hiccups of course, but I can’t wait for that.
Wait for that. Work for that. Until then, stop protesting. It’s a waste of everyone’s time.
