The thing is, participation in our system is what makes the system work. If the system is broken, it's because the wrong people are behind the steering wheel driving us to god knows where. It's our responsibility to get the right people in the driverseat. Sorry but protesting alone won't make it work. It's great for raising awareness, like the Ice Bucket Challenge (raised awareness and got people to donate LOTS to ALS research), but ultimately it, like protesting, was only a catalyst to move people toward change. Protesting isn't sustainable because once the shock value wears off, the empathy level of the general population (the majority of people not experiencing your angst and pain points) drops.
