Let’s Have Fun!
Recently I did a simple search, “fun in social movements,” Believe it or not, google, for all its searching power, could not provide me with a relevant link.
I think this is sad and a really missed opportunity on the part of organizers. In part 1 of this series of articles I wrote about tea partiers and and showed this video:
But really, if you look at any video, or protest of tea partiers they always look like that. They get dressed up in American flag t-shirts, or better yet, founding fathers garb. They get out there, and have a good time. In the video above it seems clear that many of the people are ill informed about the purpose of the Glenn Beck rally. But all of those bodies showed up. For week after there was debate about the number of people who showed up to “restore Honor to America’. One thing was clear though, it was a whole heck of a lot!
