  • Context – When we went into the streets against the cruise missile we were there by 10s and 100s of thousands. Early 80s. No internet. #
  • A lot of my cohort are jet-setters. Protest tourists. I'm sure some were in Cairo. Me? I moved back to Alberta. *shrug* Sheep / goats. #borg #

  • Youth captivated by #Egypt K, let's try this: Mubarak had his regime. Where ever you are, there's a variant of that. #RuleOfLaw #Justice #
  • Documentary on child slaves in cocoa plantations. GOP hates /hates/ HATES the UN and such as ILO. A new democracy at hand? Not really. #

  • Deep understanding of oligarchs in 1 easy step: They hide behind the same rationalizations you use when you compromise your integrity. #
