What if a new style of protest could make every voter fall in love with Democrats?

We are not forecasting a possibility but declaring an imminent reality: 2025 is the year the Democrats revolutionize the concept of protest, breathe new life into our democracy, and harnessing the influential force of performance to effect significant societal transformation.

Imagine if the fervor of the most enthusiastic Democrats consistently brought a broad smile to the face of every American.

By Mike Reid | January 2025

Picture this: a political protest where everyone is thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Participants dance, sing, and chant, holding up ingenious and amusing signs. This isn't an ordinary protest; it's one where actors and other talented performers are employed to foster a captivating and enjoyable environment. As a result, protesters have a fantastic time while Americans secure meaningful work and decent pay, creating a win-win situation.

In fact, employing actors at protests could generate an entirely new political industry, concurrently providing well-paying jobs for performers. This profession is notorious for its challenges, including scarce opportunities for stable employment. However, as protests become a prominent form of activism, performers might discover a new thrilling avenue to put their skills to use.

Consider a protest demanding that billionaires contribute their fair share of taxes for the common good. Performers collaborate to create an energetic and vibrant event that captivates everyone by humorously portraying the lives of the wealthy elite, while protesters contribute with chants and songs urging an end to wealth and power concentration among the few.

The atmosphere is electric, the message is lucid, and everyone has a fantastic time. Through creative protest methods, messages are more effectively communicated, and more people are motivated and inspired to act. The protest garners attention and media coverage, spreading the call for change far and wide.

Now, imagine a protest advocating for more affordable housing without the involvement of performers. Demonstrators sit sadly and quietly, holding banners and signs displaying the challenges faced by those struggling to find affordable homes. The messages on the placards reveal the grim reality of rising housing costs and the number of people being priced out of the neighborhoods.

While the cause is undoubtedly important, the atmosphere is somber and heavy, which could diminish the motivation and enthusiasm of the protesters.

Passersbys may take notice but might feel disheartened by the starkness of the situation, making them less inclined to engage with the protest. As a result, the opportunity to inspire more people to act and join the fight for affordable housing might be missed, limiting the protest's overall effectiveness.

Naturally, there are potential drawbacks to this approach. Some traditionalists will argue that protests must maintain a serious tone, and hiring actors could detract from the message and trivialize the event. They will have concerns regarding the cost of hiring performers and whether it's a wise allocation of resources.

However, it's important to consider that a protest's efficacy lies in its ability to draw attention to a cause, generate conversation, and inspire change. If the addition of performance enhances these elements, then the objective of the protest remains intact.

Far from trivializing the message, performers bring an added layer of engagement and accessibility that may appeal to wider demographics and prompt more individuals to become involved.

As for the concern of cost, it's worth noting that many talented performers are currently unemployed or underemployed, seeking opportunities for creative expression and financial stability.

Therefore, hiring these performers for protests will provide a much-needed source of income for this struggling profession.
