I suppose the times are changing indeed

$200 to be a protester! It's almost Monty Pythonian in its absurdity.

The Germans (who else?) came up with the idea.

So, think about this in terms of IR research (yes, I had a class today. More on that, including on how my classroom was shifted without any warning or notice to me, later):

If there were paid protesters at a protest, could we still count them as part of the committed anti-whatnot folks? How would polling them work? Would each protester get his/her own backstory based on which protest they were being hired for? And, who is a real protester and who isn't?

Ahem, paid to protest? Absurd, I say!
