Wow. Just the amount of protests everywhere.. my god. I do think it's happening finally. The shift in consciousness. Pardon me for dragging metaphysical aspects into something that seems merely political.. but, take a look.. the protests have been increasing RAPIDLY in the past year and a half. It's amazing!! People ARE waking up. I know it seems a bit fanatical to say something like 'the world is alive and we are going through a phase that occurs once in millions of years'.. but let's wait a year before making any judgment on such fanatical sayings.. I think things like this are just going to increase and increase in frequency, until there's a tipping point when SOMETHING will give, and the world as we know it will change forever.
The rest of this year and 2012 will certainly be very, very, very interesting!

That, friends and neighbors, sounds like an invitation to start a revolution. And when the armed forces gives you an invitation, you know it's a trap 99 times out of 100.

Got this from a portuguese-speaking friend's husband's facebook update
"This is really interesting. Basically, the Portuguese military has come out and announced that if the people riot, they are on the side of the people, not the government. Also, when journalists asked the military if they planned to revolt, their only response was "Revolutions are not announced ahead of time."
The original Portuguese news article: economico.sapo.pt...
The Google Translation in English of the same:
A relevant snippet from horrible English translation:
The military thus ensure that "serve the Portuguese people and not private institutions," and warns, "Let no one dare to think that the armed forces can be used in the repression of social upheaval that these measures may cause."
wow. how can you not love it (and the Portuguese)
