II owe the following thoughts to Steven Hayward, a senior resident scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkely, Hayward contributes his observations to various conservative publications.

“Peaceful demonstration intensified?”
Perhaps we should call the demonstration “intense peace.”
George Orwell would have been proud.
