The nation will never act in uniformity as some are intrinsically drawn to authoritarian structures in sort of a Stockholm Syndrome manner. They want to watch the beatings and their brains respond in very different manners than the brains of more peace-loving folks. Their numbers might be reduced, but never to zero I am afraid.

It seems that the US military may also be taking a knee on the side of the Constitution and the people.

“Retired Marine Gen. Jim Mattis, who resigned as President Trump’s defense secretary nearly a year and a half ago over policy differences, has issued an extraordinary critique of the White House’s handling of nationwide unrest, saying Trump has sought to divide Americans and warning against “militarizing our response” to the protests.”
