I was thinking about protests recently. If protesters mean what they say, then why don't they put their money where their mouths are?
Wisconsin saw large protests a while ago because our governor wanted to limit the collective bargaining for public school teachers. Rather than complain, and call me names, why didn't all the protesters each put some money, and maybe volunteer work, towards starting their own schools? They could teach nothing but global warming and sensitivity training all day. They could pay their teachers as much as they want. And those of us who voted for our governor would have nothing to complain about. The protesters would get what they want and they would not be demanding to take taxes from others by force.
Why don't environmental protestors get together and buy large chunks of land and tell loggers to get bent?
This idea may not work for every form of protest, but why don't the protesters spend more time trying their own ideas without demanding that people who disagree pay for the things that the protestors want?
(fyi: protesters are hypocrites who feel good when they try to "save the world.")
