59. That's Rioting,Not Organized Protest
And on that point, i agree with you. But, burning things out of anger is rioting, and it's chaotic, and it's not organized to achieve any single gain.

Such a natural reaction to "enough is enough" very well could occur. I just said that one cannot organize that type of activity. If it happens, it will be a natural boil-over, just like the riots in the 60's in Watts, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, etc. Those weren't organized by anyone. They just happened because people had endured more than they could anymore.
