6. I'd agree that protests should be more focused and professional...
... in order to communicate one strong message, instead of a dozen or so tangential outbursts.




Part of the problem is how inclusive we tend to be. Don't get me wrong. I love our diversity. It's innovative and a wonderful strength. And it's also a double-edged sword that the other side doesn't have to worry about.

The ubiquitous "come one, come all, and do whatever" mentality has often been over-interpreted. I've seen it turn a serious act of political protest into a miniature Burning Man celebration.

I like celebrations, a lot actually, but not when I'm delivering a message.
