Anti-establishment Becoming Establishment

Scary to think what happens outside of the 10-foot perimeter. 

 Today is the 79th day of protests in Portland. Every night and most days since May 28th have seen some sort of Black Lives Matter gathering.

Humans, being adaptive creatures, can get used to just about anything, even a civic culture of tear gas and clashes with police. This tendency to adapt explains why we slowly became acculturated to a militarized police force and ignored police violence against minorities.

Now the public is getting accustomed to on-going protest and the counter-culture is becoming mainstream, so the snark is starting in earnest.

The pizzeria gets in on the action.
