so what are you ranting on about?
It's quite clear what I'm saying (your denegration of it as "ranting" being just another example of your propagandism). You defend the disruption of other people's businesses, other people's use of streets, other people's desires to go get the education they paid for; other people's rights, in other words. In doing so, you demonstrate that you don't understand democracy at all; you twist its definition to suit your cause. You would stop once it was your rights being trampled by protesters you disagreed with.
Protest is a form of expression, and expression is integral to democracy (since democracy requires dialogue). However, expression, including its protest form, cannot be (and is not now, nor has it ever been in Canada) entirely unlimited if democracy is to exist; without limitation, the biggest and/or most violent mob gets all the say as dissenting voices are shut up by it (the protesters preventing students who wanted to go to class from doing so or the mob that disrupted classes and threatened and manhandled some of the studends in those classes being a perfect illustration); dialogue ceases, democracy is gone. (I'm not suggesting Quebec is at or even near that extreme point; but it's at the top of a slipery slope towards it, and you're encouraging things to move down it faster.)
Are you at all aware of what Section 1 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms says?[ed.: +]
