A timely reminder ; no further explanation required.
People generally desire the world and society to be “fair” and for governments and those in authority to exercise “justice”.
The same people often believe that with a sufficient amount of “moral” argument and peaceful protest the apparent injustices and wrongs can somehow be reformed away by reasoned argument; by, for instance, the use of facts and figures and tales of woe and misery that those in authority have perhaps, inadvertently inflicted upon them and those who oppress them can then somehow become their friends.
Why are you being persecuted, oppressed, marginalised, demonised and being made to feel less than fully human?
Orwell wrote this, and alas for all the naive ones out there, it is an immutable truth.
“Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.” – 1984, by George Orwell.
