1. Does the day need saving, or are things pretty much going OK as they are. Bear in mind that things not going exactly as you would have done it, if you were in charge is no excuse to stir up trouble.2. How do other people feel? The four people in the "coalition" living room might constitute an echo chamber. Do other people really think the same way you do? Are you really doing what is right for the community, or just stroking your own ego (because, frankly, you don't think you're wrong about anything, right?)3. Do you have your own shit together? Have you saved enough for retirement? Are you about to lose your job? Is your house clean and tidy, or a hoarder's nightmare (hoarding and "save the day" are related, remember). Are you smoking pot or abusing other drugs? Could the energy you put into "Saving the world" be better spent saving yourself?
The protesters pack up, go home, and will then bore their neighbors about how they "made a difference" and "saved the world." You know, it is a funny thing, but the Vietnam war ended in 1975 - about five years after most of the protests against the war had ended. The war ended because it was expensive and unwinnable - and unpopular with the adult voting public. I am not sure the hippie movement really made any difference whatsoever, in retrospect.
UPDATE: Look for the MAGA hat!
