Protests Are Good, Actually

Protests Are Good, Actually

Why do people protest things that are objectively good for themselves and their neighbors? Let's look at protests through the lens of evolutionary biology, nervous system responses, politics, nd power dynamics. History has shown us that protests are a predictable result of burning through all the official channels to create change and getting nowhere. When people don't have any meaningful mechanism to change their material circumstances, they tend to get loud and burn things. (And yes, we're talking about the mothertruckers too.)
