I guess it all depends on what is being protested. If it is something new and unexplored then I think the chances are better that those who are protesting will be heard and later recognized. But if it is a topic such as aportion that is being protested, I think that they will be ignored, mainly because the subject has been debated for so long.

Sometimes, but some of today's protesters are just bored college students.

Some are, but not always.

Being able to shout very hard is useful for being a leader....

F*ck no. They are today's criminals. Ever heard of Cindy Sheehan?
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/23/06 - 10:54:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, many are.

Not if they're protestes are ridiculous, as they often seem to be.

Some are. Jack Straw seems to be an obvious case.

No, they're annoying.

A few days ago one of our local news stations interviewed some of the kids who chose to ditch school and protest illegal immigration reform. When asked why they were doing it, none of them could provide a coherent reason and it was obvious they were there because they thought it was "hip" and "cool". None of those interviewed seemed to have any understanding of the issue.

To answer the question, based on those interviews, I would have to say, dear gawd, I hope not!

I think it depends. Some become the leaders and some become the criminals.

Mostly no, I would think. I assume this means political leaders, who are elected as being calm and compromising. People go to protests to feel excited and useful with others with similar opinions, and politicians are accustomed to discussing issues bipartisanly (the good ones are).
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 4/27/06 - 7:14:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no. At least, I drating hope not.

It'd probably be more accurate to say that tomorrow's leaders are today's protesters, since most of today's protestors won't be tomorrow's leaders. However, I think that it's very likely that most of tomorrow's leaders are protesters today because those are the people who are most involved and most passionate about the issues, etc. so they are naturally going to be more likely to be leaders in the future.

Closer to never then to often.

Not often. I suppose, say, a generation with a strong protesting contingent could affect tomorrow's direction, but I think more often the leaders of any era are the people who understand how to get in the door before working to change the system, so protesting from the outside before that just wouldn't be as traditional a path.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 11/28/06 - 12:43:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think not as most protesters are not organized enough to change anything

Civil disobediance is still disobediance

Yeah, but we give people a break on that when they win.
And that's the thing. In the US, at least, there've been a lot more *little* changes in society, but nothing completely revolutionary. Until then, those people who navigated the subtle changes are more likely to rise to (retain) power than those who stood out for rebeliousness.

They can be, if you put your mind to it.

Its possible but unlikely.
