Dehumanization theater, continued.

When they sent in DPW to tear down tents at Occupy SF today, they sent them in paper suits. For the visuals, doubtless. They'd use ten-foot poles if that wasn't likely to look even sillier. Because pushing the idea of a need for decontamination sustains the pretense that democracy protesters and homeless people are septic dangerous Others. Not neighbors trying to get by alongside the passive majority. Not citizens with rights. Not people.
