And they wonder why people are so very angry and preparing for major protests against the Kleptocracy in May?
Time we wrote an open letter to the Commissioner of Police detailing why people are so disgusted at the vile behaviour of our 'leaders'? Yep - I'm working on one. Any ideas gratefully received (here on IMC) on how to write in a language he might just understand...
My naive question, asked a million times already, is how can the 'forces of law and order' condone the blatant crimes of those who give them their orders yet at the same time intimidate and damage caring, decent folk for having the bravery to stand up and say YA BASTA to all this appalling evil (DU, Oil before people, climate change, death and destruction wherever profit is at risk, etc etc ad inf) being perpetrated by those in power?
'It is those who follow any authority blindly who are the real danger.' Prof P. Zimbardo, Stanford University.
'You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul.' - Mahatma Gandhi
