My suggestion for what civil disobedience should look like is to move to Phoenix, trade their imitation Army rifles for shovels, and do a protest march through the residential subdivisions, pulling weeds as they go.
They should march into restaurant kitchens, offering to wash dishes for free. Or volunteer to man the drive through at any of a hundred fast food joints. Maybe ask a California cabbage farmer if they have anything needs harvesting. Those are the jobs illegal immigrants might be taking away.
I first noticed this in a New York Review of Books report about a month ago. And I've wanted us to do a piece on it since. Put simply, as we in America lost in interest in Ebola, the situation in West Africa was actually improving dramatically. Public health workers rightly include all sorts of caveats. People are still dying and people are still getting infected. But the outbreak in Liberia actually in steep decline. While the situation in Sierra Leone remains acute, the nightmare outlook we were hearing about in September and October looks very different now. Here's our report. Really a must read.
