Protest fatigue. 2/2 

Unless the protests involve tens of millions of people I don't think anyone will be paying attention, so I don't believe protest even has any point anymore. Our government just isn't listening.

Keep that in mind when you feel like putting all of your emotional energy into marching and such.

@Ricardus yep. they've been counting on protest fatigue.

Nothing short of a general strike or an actual revolution is going to make a damn bit of difference.

@robdaemon yes. I agree completely. And the corporate establishment has gone out of its way to make sure people have to work 60 hours a week for low pay so they don't have time or money to attend protests.
