I Have Got It!I have struggled with why this quiet protest so impresses me.
It took me a while but I know now.
Almost any major protest I have seen involves large crowds of people chanting slogans and waving their arms, as they do in rock concerts. When I see that behavior, I see Nuremburg in the 1930s. That bit sickens me. It's one reason I do not like even innocent activities like rock concerts (and I have a cousin who is a rock star!).
So this restraint attracts me in ways few can imagine.
Brilliance and it surely draws my sympathy.
