  •  Think how orchestrated political power (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    is served to the citizens that voted for it. At any political meeting where the action and behavior of government is supposedly examined, the audience is expected to listen attentively, applaud loudly but never question the perceived wisdom from their leaders.

    Orchestrated meetings are disrupted - and power inconvenienced -when alternative views are voiced in one of the very few ways open to it - civil disobedience.

    In this country dissent is neither welcomed or even tolerated. Disruptions such as Sturtz's may be rude, but there are not many alternatives when attempts are made to confront power.
