This is really great, I wonder if things would get to a point where they'd play out similarly in the US. I bet it'll go on like it is until a
critical point is reached, where the inaction caused by the "It couldn't happen to me or mine" phenomenon is replaced by a "Something like this
happened to me or mine" mentality in most people, as more and more "ordinary americans" are affected or rendered destitute.
I feel like I've been seeing more of this sort of thing lately, though it could be confirmation bias. Besides this article, I'm also thinking of
the town meeting in Buffalo where the people were so impassioned about their rights and the government reps were so clearly wrong-footed in the face
of public participation. I also saw a video recently of a streaker or something on a football pitch getting tackled down by 4 cops/security
personnel, who proceeded to brutalize him, at least until hundreds from the crowd poured onto the pitch and sent the cops fleeing.
A little civil disobedience warms the heart
