One aside to your editorial - "Let’s subsidize a laundromat like our electric company subsidizes grow ops."
It seems to me that it is all the other customers of said electric company to subsidize the grow houses (by people who also claim a financial hardship / low income discount.) and not the electric company, itself.
But to your main point - if the people in the plaza are "inarticulate, didn’t know what the movement was about" - as you agreed, why would I want to join them (even if they attain hygiene)?
I want to add my voice against the inequity of those who deem themselves above the law (too big to fail), but I don't want to join an ignorant, angry mob.
I know others who might otherwise be sympathetic to this cause are put off by the realities of those who flock to protest, unable to maintain their passion while also respecting each other's points of view.
Perhaps Chief Chapman's ultimatium is not so unreasonable after all?
Perhaps we could take turns occupying the plaza, voicing our outrage and concern, with respites for our bodily needs.
I'd take a turn to occupy the plaza. But I wouldn't want to live there.
