Tactics of Protesting

Scroll down and check out Phil Donahue, Abby Hoffman, and Jerry Rubin videos. Rubin with Donahue really cracked me up ...

GPS is part of most cars, phones, and anything you say, write, read, where you go, and anyone you associate with is now easily accessible with technology. The modern protester may have to give up his/her family, friends, cellphone, computer, own car, home, job, and the standard way of life, just to make a political point. Most don't know the true costs of free speech ... until "the man" comes up and bites them in the ass ...

The "Yippies" of the sixties look rather comical now. They were easily identifiable. A housewife with 4 kids could be a likely modern protester, along with any other pissed off American of any age, race, sex, background, or occupation ...

I ask him a question about 20 seconds in.

The topics of discussion are Phil Donahue's Documentary, "Body of War":

Should Bush be arrested for being a war criminal and crimes against humanity?

What about Free Speech, a Free Press, the economy, and our youth not be unnecessarily harmed and killed?


Things are so much more complicated now:
