That, Mc Fate, is exactly my case; people should be protected from violence and when the State cannot protect them, they should be encouraged to protect themselves. Keeping a low profile is one way of doing this.
Or, you know, we could at least continue to talk about being proactive and helpful and not just giving up.
I think it is really strange that your response to a group of people being threatened with violence is to tell that group to keep their head down and not to provide any assistance. Apart fro this issue, are there other issues where you give out the same advice? Are there any issues where you would stand up for people rights? I'm curious how you decide which is the most appropriate response for which issue.
I'm still interested in the answer to these questions.
