What if you didn’t react? What if you didn’t get riled up or upset or annoyed by some comment?
What if you just waved this one off and continued on your way? Would the world stop? Would harm come to anyone?
(This is usually the great test. If harm will come, then act. If no harm will come, then think again.)
The law mentions “disturbing the peace” but maybe the real crime is disturbing your peace.
Maybe the solution is to not let someone else make you crazy.
