A small afterthought about ANTIFA.
I wonder if they think of themselves as comic book, superheroes. Masked crusaders for justice fighting evil.
I have another analogy for them.
Think of them as a minor annoyance, sucking the power of the rights afforded to all of us to protest and speak our truths publicly, but redirecting it to stop the rights of others using violence and semantic-rhetorical tricks to justify that violence.
At first, it isn’t worth the effort of the social body to notice them, or focus much effort on dealing with a problem that small, even though the local area may feel inflamed now and again and a soft scratch might relieve it for a moment.
Over time, the problem grows more and more and eventually the social body will feel it is worth the effort and expense of stopping what it normally does and consider the problem something that goes beyond the usual performance envelope of the day to day activities, and fix it.
And that day is close and will be wonderful to watch.
But it does leave one question though.
Do pubic lice think they are superheroes?
