today, i pause!
i've really been enjoying the bombastic rhetoric between the US (Bush especially) and the countries like Iran! for me it all shows how stupid human beings can be! it's sickening to still be bedeviled with threats of war, removal of teeth with a pair of pliers and chopping off of heads with hack-saws! and then what?
the world has come a damn long way! from the days of BC to AD. from the days of Solomon and his countless concubines to this present day King Nswati and his annual parade of virgins! from the days when almost the whole of Europe was at war because of Religious doctrines - beliefs???? (Catholic vs Protestants) to these present day's Rwanda and Bosnia!
we are even told that we are to blame for the death of one Jesus! JeeeeeeeeeeeSUS!
and yet, we have come from civilizations which even today we hardly can fathom how developed man could be if only our energies are harnessed properly! I talk about the Pyramids of Cairo's Giza! and man is wonderful indeed!
So today i share a thought for Neda, and i share a thought for Neda not because of the post-humorous publicity she's suddenly gained but because she represents a case in history just as millions and millions of others who died for making their voices know!
and at this juncture, for a juxtapose; aah! I REMEMBER!!! i remember Galileo Galilei who could not stand his ground for the fear of his life. i don't fault him, for my grandmother used to tell me that "to listen is better than to sacrifice"! whatever that means! peace on that man too, but surely a thought for Neda!!!
Iran must rise!
Iran must kick those religious foolish heads out of town now! and if it means many more Neda's will die, so be it! why sacrifice a whole nation of 'varied and different' (yeah, that! those two words put together must carry something) people of different perceptions of this same world.
who at all is believing that he or she must control the spirit of men and women lest they face the whip????????? which whip Pal?????? i don't know even!
but a people will revolt, and it's just a matter of time! Pal, the nonsense is just too much and my head reels. oh no! another 'bloody' revolution before the human beings will learn sense? let it come!!!
Iran must rise, a people must survive!
