so the UK riot police use batons, plastic shields, and men on horses to control their people
the US riot police use tear gas, rubber bullets, tazer guns, and vehicles mounted with loudspeakers that produce ultrasonic frequencies to nearly
America is well tamed.
Every student in the UK currently in a college or uni or expecting to be or hoping to be needs to be out in the streets, bunking class if need be. Any
professor in a college needs to be out in the streets right now in support of their students and in support of the educational institution and the
integrity of their profession, especially if every student were out there- they might as well, if they want to continue working. Every k-12 teacher
needs to be out in the streets if they believe in what they teach is to create a better, smarter generation for a better future. Every former college
student should be out in the streets protesting in support of the students because they were once them and know the tribulations of expensive
education, and any drop out who could not afford the education as well, as they know the worst of it. Every mother and father of a student should be
out in the streets protesting, because essentially it is their money and their childs education on the line, two very important things to a working
family with children.
Any ATSer in the UK right now, well, I can only hope you are doing your bit, whether it be protesting in the streets or rousing your classmates or
whatever. You cannot let your education become a drag. Don't let yourselves be Americanized.
I hope we Americans can learn something from this, and gain some knowledge, and from that wisdom. Wisdom is developed from acting on knowledge. We
have that knowledge, now we must act, otherwise it is just useless.
What happened to the Generation X of 2004 that were so entranced by their hate of the direction our country was going under the Bush administration?
Have they all gotten pregnant and been petrified in labor for the past 6 years? Is 30 Rock and House and Family Guy really that funny that they can't
miss the scheduled programming or the Tivo replay after three beers? Dammit.
don't be afraid. there will always be blood.
no matter what your purpose is, you must leave. I dont know where you are, what you are doing, or why you are doing it, but you must leave. Ovrir la
porte, and get out.
