Let us think about the participants in the famous events of January Sixth. Those people involved in that unique invasion of the Capitol appear in many films (it has to be the most photographed major historic event in history) to be purposely fighting to get into the great marble temple of democracy.

After the great heart-beating excitement of invasion they seem out of place and lost.

And they were lost. Many clearly had been fooled…
