There are those who sit at home and tut tut about media reports of social injustice, corruption in high places or arrests under specious pretenses of violation of so called ownership of the land or seas, and do little. It is said that evil can only prosper when good men (and women) do nothing. Dictators and despots invariably hold onto power with a ruthless disregard for Human Rights paranoically fearing any threat to their weltanshauung of universal ownership. Terrified of the threat from within they are exquisitely sensitive to protests from without their fiefdom, thinking that these will empower the imagined and maybe real protesters and insurrectionists within. Each protest adds to the instability of inner rectitude of the Autocrat. A giant avalanche starts with a tiny snowball rolling downhill. Let each one of us be that snowball.
