Look at this picture

The woman's eyes are closed. From the small part of her body we can see, she appears to arched in a posture indicating an extreme physical or emotional state. In other words, she is either in pain or having an orgasm. I doubt as if either state is true. So why did the photographer move in to get a close-up of this one young woman as opposed to all of the other protesters? Simple. She presented the best theater. She's moderately pretty and she is faking an dramatic and, therefore photogenic, state. Once upon a time, liberals were the masters of street theater. At sometime in the last twenty years, we forgot how to do it. I'll have more to say about this later.
