Methinks the six hanged might not view the situation as “sticky”. Statistics mean nothing when they happen to you.

Governments in general exist because the people decide the price of submission is better than the price of opposition. So long as the protesters believe this, they’ll lose.

Those who decide “to this we devote our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” win. Those who don’t, lose.

I know what you mean.  Look, all I'm saying is that if the protests remain peaceful, the protesters can't be faulted by anyone.  If they want world support, I think it's best they go on general strikes, march in the streets and do other productive things that let the goverment know it's days are numbered.

I don't want this to reach the level where most people would say, "Well, if they were doing that here they'd get the same thing."




Some Freepers see everything through a red, white, and blue filter.  Lets prove right now how many of us do.  1% of the Freepathon total has been reached.

Do the deed.  Click those smiling faces right now.  Spread the word...
