People May Wonder

...why I care about a little commemorative rocket that I can never own and affects me in no way whatsoever. 

This is why...

I can’t be involved any longer. If it were just me… but it isn’t. I have others who need me to stay out of the fight, as much as I hate it. If I keep in the frontlines, I will become a casualty, and I have people who are dependent on me, helpless in the world if something becomes of my good name. And so I must turn away, tears in my eyes, and leave the field of battle. I am sickened, but my duty is clear.

I cannot bay. I have been bound into silence. I bow my head, and exit…

You see, it's not REALLY about the dinky little rocket. 

At 2:24 we get to the crux of the matter.

1 The CHORFS see that video as a how-to, not a cautionary tale.  I guess they would miss the bit around 2:45 where the Red Guards were banished as soon as they'd outlived their usefulness.

2 I've met Cedar, and she's a kind and wonderful woman. And it sucks that this whole crap deluge has been so bad for her.
