Take Uber-lib Henry Thoreau. This man believed that voting was a privilege afforded to all Americans and he protested by doing nothing. Well, he hung out around a pond and proclaimed that all Americans should be equal. The first hippie. The result: he was placed in jail and wrote a book. "Civil Disobedience" was a catchy title but a bore of a book to influence anyone.
Now, Vietnamese monks knew how to protest. They would set themselves on fire. That is exciting. The only problem is no one remembers which lefty plan they lit themselves up over. I like this method because the protester has only one protest in them.
The Chinese had the Tiananmen Square protest. It was OK but would have been great if the tank had rolled over that Chinese student turning him from Asian to Oriental. I do not remember why this incident occurred but I do know that ever since it has been very cheap to produce needed goods.
If you think that a protest could ever do any good, feel free to block traffic. If you want to make a point that we will all forget, set yourself on fire.
