Great episode! I think that many people on the side of tearing down statues feel lost or that society has nothing to offer them. And that ties in with many of your episodes; that men have lost sight of the significance of being a MAN, that the family has been displaced for the pursuit of pleasure and treasure, that there is an abundance of instant gratification at the cost of generational wealth and longterm legacies. There is such a disconnect between the common person and the governing elite (to include corporations) that people are expressing anger and dismay in destructive fashion rather than keeping faith that they can strengthen society by just working hard to build and create progress.
