One velvet morning when I'm straight...
I'm gonna open up your gate...
There was a time when "Dirty Harry" stood for the people.
NOW we're stuck with THIS version...
That brave man in front of the column of tanks in Tienanmen Square in Beijing was then arrested, but luckily it was not executed ...
He was and will always be a symbol of the struggle of an ordinary citizen against the power and violence.
Probably our civic consciousness and awaken our courage alone or often in extreme conditions (Ukraine - Libya - Egypt - Tunisia - Syria ...), but in "democracies" everything is normal "asleep" from the conditioning of the mass media (newspapers - television - radio), from our apathy and our selfishness typical of modern man.
I think the real point of departure for any discussion or reflection is the 'deception of the mirror ... We all often reflected images are only living ...
The mirror is political power, economic power, social power and cultural media.
And the 'image that we see ourselves and the perception of our thinking very, very often is strongly influenced and distorted by the mirror ...
Someone once said...
The Brave die only ONCE...
while the Coward will die
a THOUSAND deaths.
I'm not sure what happened to this man in China, who "dared" to speak...
for ALL of us...
AROUND THE WORLD...
but I want to thank him and ALL the others like him!!!!!!!!
that is one of my favorite pictures of all time!!!
the courage of one average person to stand in place and stop a column of tanks! the symbolism!!!!!
Something similiar to the Battle of Bunkerville happened a few years ago...
in another country...
and it looked like this...
WATCH THE POLITICAL POWER, YOU WILL SEE ONLY BLACK POWDER AND DIRTY ...
LOOK THROUGH THE POLITICAL POWER AND YOU WILL SEE THE WHOLE WORLD ...
Most of the government in the world now a days are not for the people, but from the people (great mistake) and buy the people.
The line in the sand.
The time is coming when EACH and EVERY one of us will have to decide.
Which side of the line will YOU choose, America??
Stand up America.
This is NOT about me...
IT'S ABOUT FREEDOM!!!!!!
WAKE UP, AMERICA!!!!
