This concept does make a lot of sense. Years ago, I remember reading The Ugly American, which laid out the way that Leftists of that time built the framework for “grassroots activism”. They did so by posing as amateurs. They would use a few well-placed allies, get them to guide a crowd into a relatively small space, and get them working in unison. They did this through chanting, coordinated movements, and gradually getting the crowd to begin working as a unit.
They actively tried to get the government to act. If they could, it was a unifying force.
FL is this. The testing ground for future action, the place they are working out the processes for the next assault on our system of government.
