The world is getting too small for people to be constantly up in an uproar about symbolic events.
Everybody getting on their high-horses, speaking pompously about how this or that offends them, and then desicrating the symbols of their adversaries.
Does such symbolic action and unwarrented self-importance ever lead anywhere good? NO.
Either shut up and accept that the world is full of people you disagree with who do stupid things, or, if you really feel the line has been crossed,
sometimes a good old-fashioned fistfight in the parkinglot is a better way to settle things and cool off hotheads before they spiral out of control.
(seems like most societies no longer allow this, but better fists and few bruises than cordite and smoking rubble, says I). Ultimately, all this "burn
this, burn that" stuff only takes people (of whatever faith or political persuasion) down a dark road.
