One social consequence of OC is that as people see it, they become accustomed to it. Another can be that POs get used to it.
Another consequence is that my bank banned all carry following an incident with a guy who chose to make his point about the 2nd Amendment on a busy Friday. Gee, thanks for that.

People said the same thing about Rosa Parks,,,
I've said it before: the Rosa Parks comparisons are distasteful and inaccurate. Blacks were denied equal treatment in many areas of life for no other reason than the way they were born. They had no control over that factor. They couldn't stop being black.

There's a big difference between that and someone simply being indiscreet in how they choose to perform a certain action.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
