They know people are going to do it anyway, might as well so it safely. We don’t need anymore people getting hurt now then we already have.


suggesting that average people just go mix up some thermite at home to destroy public monuments is definitely gonna get some people hurt, and probably gonna get you marked a terrorist. stick to the chains or torches. DONT manufacture pyrotechnics in your kitchen


Chaotic good


“Don’t stand where the statue is going to fall” seems like a pretty good tip.


Good article. But using thermite among a crowd of rowdy protestors probably won’t result in “nobody getting hurt”.
