Their behavior is offensive, childish, and it's damaging our image.
And in this one they harass an old lady at 17m48s:
Oooh, tough guys, fightin' for our rights. And listen to that voice, acting all innocent and holier than thou. Then he calls the school a prison, which is a subject you can't just jump into like that. Is this stuff aired on TV there? They're making us look crazy! There's no way they were just there to hand out literature or they would have gone when school was out and there were actually children there. And who hands out literature to kids like that? Yea that's what parents want to see, people handing out who knows what to their kids.
These people actively look for confrontation. And 'Voluntyrist' clearly isn't her real last name, how can somebody be so full of themselves like this?
So, you're not argueing about whether one could consider a school similar to a prison, but rather the effect it might have, such as alienation from FreeKeene, or further reinforcing denial of the fascist nature of the country?
I can understand the need for good propaganda, but part of any activist group is accepting individuals whose acts you may not directly support, but understand why they do what they do.
Then you say they're making all of you look crazy?
So because someone else can't/won't accept the nature of the laws passed in this country it makes the person who speaks truthfully a crazy person?
It's not a sign of health to be attuned to a sick society, my friend.
As to them handing out info to kids and the parents not liking that. I can understand your concerns of alienation, but many adults can't hear what needs to be said. The real world is far too threatening to their comfort, both mental and physical. The implications too many and too great. Most just close their minds and attack you for not playing life according to the socially engineered script.
It's important that you realize, as Monty Python said, The violence is inherent in the system. Either activists/protesters are peaceful and are subjected to the violence, or they are prepared to do violence if they deem it necessary & worthwhile.
Nevermind the people killed in the wars, as a result of prohibition, or detained indefinitely without charge or trial. All with YOUR taxes. That's robbing Peter to slay Paul.
In a more perfect world pacifism would work. The world is not yet more perfect though.
The key here being that WISHING something were true does not yet MAKE it true.
Do you understand where I'm coming from?
