It's ok to come here and complain about your countries corrupt law system, but i don't see any american citizens standing up for whats right, i dont see any news about mass protests to stop it or change it, its easy to sit behind a computer screen and condemn something, if you really cared about what was happening to your country you would be proactive in stopping it or at least contributing to something that could change it, or are all americans couch potatoes that really don't care?
I know the cop and mother is wrong, but whats more wrong is the millions of americans standing idly by and letting this happen in a country that allows people to protest without getting shot.
Buddy, this is exactly what we're doing here. We're promoting awareness of the issues and engaging in intellectual debates about the ramifications of these types of events.
You can't fight these dictators without first organizing. You can't effectively organize and protest in the streets without getting a certain chunk of the people on board. You can't get them on board without spreading awareness of these evils first.
So that's what we're doing. We're fighting the wars against our minds, in a civil and intellectual way. I'm all for taking to the streets, but that won't be a reality until enough pressures force enough minds to "activate". That has yet to happen.
