The "language" used

A quick opinion: the language as well as posturing used is significant in an activist mode/protest situation as the protest is mean to convey a message to all people. Because cops sometime use foul language does not make it o.k....in fact, the opposite could be true. A group of people who need to be reached is the seniors in the country and they tend to connect LANGUAGE with a poor upbringing and lack of education. If one is going to take risks to get a message heard, it might be valuable to consider deleting screaming and foul mouthedness from one's approach. I remember someone on this board who once made the observation that we don't see Dr. Paul taking the bait and not maintaining his air of calm, correct, confidence/firmness. Believe the issue, state it calmly , and stand your ground might be more effective approach to presenting a position.
