COPS know how to protest without getting hurt.  It’s called Blue Flu.  A Guardian article focusing on the historic futility of street protests makes it clear that risking safety has accomplished little, as governments allow the public to vent, up to a point.  And then heads get busted, and people are damaged for life, or die.  But there is another way : Just stay home. Call in sick. Sit on your hands. Slow down. >>> This is powerful.  The wisdom of crowds should be to work smart instead of hard or dangerously.  Investing our energy where it has the most leverage and the least risk will win.  We the People have a hammer.  With it, we can restore democracy.  Use it skillfully, gently, wisely.
