Firefighters: So, we’ve been making some progress on putting out the fire, but as you can see, there’s still a lot of work left to do.
People: Oh, yeah, it looks so much better! Okay, you can stop now.
Firefighters: But…there’s…still fire?
People: Nah, I think we’re heading in the right direction. Just stop what you’re doing and we’re sure it’ll be fine. We’re going to go back inside now, k?
Firefighters: The building is on FIRE.
People: Yeah, but we’re tired of standing out here safely away from something that could kill us, so we think we’d rather just go back inside and get our lives back to normal.
Firefighters: THE BUILDING IS ON FIRE. You can’t go back to your normal lives when the whole place is burning down around you. And if it keeps burning, other buildings might catch on fire, too, and burn down the whole city.
People: This is America, dammit, and that means we have the right to a life of freedom in a burning building if that is what we choose! USA! USA! USA!
