Humane non-lethal military weapons for crowd dispersion and its effects on social activism

Editor’s Note: The idea that we live in a multiverse made up of infinite parallel universes, also called “alternate dimensions”, or “alternate timelines,” has been defended by various prominent physicists. In one of such hypothetical universes, the following conjecture may be taking place, and reflecting upon it may be utility-generating for scholars in various timelines:

Setting: Alternate Universe comparable to 22nd century Known-Earth if the imperialist-globalization-stage of 21st century capitalism is followed by Techno-Barbarism.

Newer and more humane non-lethal military weapons for crowd dispersion were quite discouraging for what was left of social activism. They couldn’t even rally support through unjustified state brutality against activists. When police officers understood a crowd needed dispersing, they would simply shoot cannons of a bubbly pink foam that gently carried away protesters while tickling them lightly.
