Okay. let me spell things out. The black bloc is a counter-productive
tactic no matter the intentions of those that carry it out. When you
wear masks and go on window-breaking rampages, it allows the state to

If a law is passed that prevents people wearing masks at protests, that
will have zero impact on legitimate mass movement building. The Vietnam
antiwar movement, the civil rights movement, the gay movement, the
woman's liberation movement, the anti-nuclear movement all produced

the economy is expanding and they should do okay.
