Anyone who has ever raised a child or for that mater, a dog, knows what happens when you allow them to feel that the rules we all obey do not apply to them. The notion that people can literally move on to a public sidewalk, then use force to protect their ‘privacy’ while ‘living’ there is a brilliant example of this. But why not. In some cities, Toronto for instance, Muslims have the special right not to be filmed or have their pictures taken not only when in public but when actually in a public demonstration waving signs and yelling slogans, as odd and counter productive as that seems at first. Really though, its a very public way of saying who is the boss of who.
The rest of us are running out of time to decide what kind of society we want, and if we are willing to apply a cost to those, trying to destroy this one.
