I’ve been to a few protests in my day. Some of the libertarian kind and quite a few more as a tourist at more conventional “lefty” protests. They can be fun. One get’s to walk in the middle of the street and yell things like “This is what democracy looks like.” And the evergreen, “Whose streets? Our Streets!” At least until the cops get serious and then everyone gets a bottled water and sits in the park.
These guys running around downtown have every right to protest. Please protest! But toppling trash cans is just lame. It’s boring.
