When was the last time a protest changed anything?

21 posts in this topic

I think some have, but it also comes down to how you do it.
If you protest something by accusing someone of something else its not going to create a positive situation.  Today's that seem to be the definition of protest is to point out something wrong and blame someone for it instead of working to change it.  
Have i seen one recently that i thought had merit.... on reason yes, on implementation, no bot really. 
Its popular today to blame one group for all the problems, instead of working to try to resolve them, and the thing about that is when you put someone on the defensive, bad things can happen.  Talk to a man you have a conversation, put a finger in his chest you have a fight.
What were doing right now is all wrong even when its being done for the right reasons.

The one thing that strikes me about todays climate, is that im not really seeing a lot of "protests"... what im seeing is a lot of aggressive behavior disguised as such.
women's suffrage, MLK, hell even Malcom X, Ghandi and so many others both here and abroad were composed, non destructive, respectful.... how we go from that to using the same term to describe asshats like antifa is a bit odd to me. 
The right to organize, assemble, and protest never said anything about smashing Starbucks or beatdowns on campus to prevent speakers you dont like.  im pretty sure.   What were seeing todays isnt what i would call a protest, its oppressive antics, its cowardice hiding behind entitlement.

Good question for a thread.

I think protesting for higher wages across the country i.e. raising the minimum wage to $15.00 hr for low wage earners worked.

Did it?  a lot of them have been replaced with machines out just let go outright.   Plus costs just went up with it on goods so who gained aside from the adult children still living at home?

Hi FF ~ I agree with your stated consequences, but the protests did allow Governors in blue States to pander to the protestors.

Governors in blue states dont need a mandate anymore, look at Newsome.
