Movements like it?

This has grown into quite literally a world wide 'movement' crossing into every nation of Man. When has there ever been any movement anything like this?
This movement consists of every kind of person of every kind of culture, of every walk of life, in every kind of nation under every kind of government.

All this, sharing an idea among the 'People', the citizenry subjected to the rule of their governments, NOT by the governments themselves.

Show me one, just one 'movement', that has spanned worldwide among citizens of nations, that has ever occurred anything like this.
It's never happened before. This is new territory without precedents.

This is ridiculous!!!!!
It is irrelevant if you agree with the protesters, I don't, but Americans have the right to protest.

I agree. However, I made it clear in my OP so people would focus on the topic, rather than the person.

This is becuase "smaller government" is a voter-friendly way of saying "police state."

I think you have that backwards.
