Your suffering doesn’t cause your opponent to change his heart, it causes Otherwise Neutral Parties to get involved. Nothing is as intuitively unjust as someone getting beaten up and abused while they aren’t fighting back. Of course, we live in a post truth world now. You can take a video of a cop pistol whipping a handcuffed suspect and people will say, without any other proof, that “there must be more to the story, cops are good.”
It’s also harder to distribute to neutral third parties. Most of the people really paying attention to those posts are already on the side of the protestors. I don’t think the idea is to assume the opponent has a conscience, and change their mind when they see you suffer. In an argument, you are never going to convince your opponent to change their mind. No, the goal is to convince everyone else of the righteousness of your argument.
