I was thinking about the numbers of people protesting in Iran this week and I wondered why don’t we see protests of this magnitude in the United States. What about the protesters’ responsibilities? What about the peoples’ jobs? Their school?
I wonder if our society is so consumeristic and we are so enslaved to making money and conforming to societal cues that protests of this magnitude are unlikely to ever occur.
Does anyone have any thoughts on whether protests of this magnitude could occur here, and if not why?
