The arguments never change. Protesting against a war results in those in favor of its execution, accusing the protesters of supporting some evil villainous creature living in the territory, amongst the people who would be or are being bombed. The creature, often said to be either Hitler revisited or Hitler 2.0; is so terrifying that extracting him (and it's always a him or a group of hims) without military weaponry is unthinkable. Way back in 1967 Dr. King faced his version of this argument, the lesson learned from his handling of its deployment shifted the “shame strategy” of those supporting the Vietnam War, instead of focusing on the creature, they began to focus more heavily on protesting the war equaling not “supporting the troops” (sound familiar?). How did Dr. King handle this assertion; in Beyond Vietnam, A Time to Break the Silence; Dr. King took the argument head on, describing in brutal detail just whom the creature was the U.S was fighting and who the actual creature was – the then President who was wholeheartedly supported by the United States. What does this have to do with today's College Campus protests? I answer this question (sort of) throughout this entire episode, mainly by explaining why protesting a war is not equatable to supporting a side in that war. In the previously mentioned speech, Dr. King explained this concept beautifully, handing down to us (those with Humanitarian Instinct running through our Brains) a fabrication, a philosophical fabrication strong enough to withstand the modern version of the red scare as it begins to reach its tentacles into the houses where these activists dwell. Something mightily profound is being revealed when a society is committed to preventing descent even before it begins. This episode dives deep into the use of Dr. King's methods for confronting these arguments. PLEASE NOTE, this was recorded about two months ago in the wake of my recovering semi-fully from COVID.
