Whenever extreme forms of protest force people to take note the usual response is one of disgust resulting in an equally vehement protest that, these people do not speak for me; I dont need liberating. I point to the obvious example of bra burning in the sixties or the suffragettes of the early 20th and late 19th century. So many comfortable women denied the need for such radical acts.
Whilst it is true to say that such acts alone did not change the world the certainly set the ball rolling. . .preparing the way as it were however slow that process may be.
It is also entirely plausible that , at the time of protest, people truly did not believe themselves enslaved thus liberation was a mute point.
Is it a question of education, should those not enslaved impose such ways; inflict our interpretations? Is it the duty of the liberated, whatever form that takes, to inform and set free the imprisoned? Protest and crusade, if you will, to unleash the inner us in them?
Better, I think, to live our lives as we see fit adopting and adapting as we go. . .prepared to help when asked; never the bully always the friend.
