I believe that we are entering a crucial phase of world history. I feel the need to say something about this, while keeping in mind that I am not an expert and that I don't know everything and would never claim to.
Today we bomb a city of 6 million people. I Have been following the anti-war movement for months and if there's one thing that made it truly strong, it was the internet. Through the internet, groups of people in countries all across the world coordinated their activities and made their views and voices heard. Also, it is through the internet that I can read alternate (i.e. Non Corporate / Non Propaganda) news that is updated daily, and I can even see "Video News" from an alternative viewpoint.
''If there is hope, it lies in the Proles.''
I would re-word this for a new, more modern interpretation. "If there is hope, it lies in the FREE/UNCENSORED INTERNET and our rights to access said medium."
The internet is a powerful resource for those of us whose views are unrepresented on the greater world scale. I should reword that - France represents my views.
"Go back to Paris and take a Bathey."
Now that the bombing has started, I can only hope that Ashur will do his best to protect his innocent children.
