Democratic government? Bullshit.

So given the opportunity, the revolution at hand, the so-called democratic government responds by flooding the almost-empty city with police, anti-riot personnel, army intelligence officers and informants. To what end? And since when is participation in a peaceful demonstration against the law?

What about Article 20 of UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Don’t ask me about the article. From today onwards, such empty talks and statements are merely illusions, and part lies. Commitments to uphold basic fundamentals seems a clear waste of time. Courtesy of apathy.

Nowadays governments are more keen to champion their right to torture, detention without trial, wire tapping, censorship, assassination, and all those terrible acts related to fascism. Is society interested in this old/new ideology? Seems so. When you remain silent, do nothing, complacent like a dirty rock sinking in mud, you are just as bad as the tyranny that invades our lives.
