The old metaphysical query, “if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” has been replaced with, “if an action happens without being tweeted or YouTubed, does it even count?”

I have nothing but love and respect for the counter protesters going out to hate rallies knowing they are putting their own lives at risk, knowing they could become a statistic that people will simply skim over in the next days headlines, warriors on the front lines that only their families and friends will remember, but as critical to the culture war as any prestigious or celebrity defender.
