What are you afraid of?
Especially when you have democracy champions like Hillary Clinton with you? Just look at her work ... she is all about the rights of the people to protest ... the rights of the people to speak up ... the rights of the people to choose their leaders. And she is so dedicated and attached to this right of the people ... that she rallies around the world ... to get support for the people who speak up.
According to her speeches ... suppressing peaceful people ... is tyranny and dictatorship. When we have democracy champion leaders like Hillary with us ... who are all about people and their rights ... and their speaking up and democracy ... and people and democracy and people and democracy ... what do we “the people” need to be afraid of? The last thing we need to worry about is that ... our leaders who are super pro democracy ... will try to suppress us from “peacefully” speaking up.
Well ... it’s a different side of the story ... that these protests in other countries quickly turn violent ... from somewhere they start getting guns ... and the conflict and clashes begin ... obviously the military will have an upper hand. And the plight of these armed outlaws is used to demonize the regime and they try to get a license to bomb the country for regime change. That’s a different side of the story ... let’s focus on the “American” side for now.
Just look at the way ... they are fighting and supporting the cause of the people ... the right of the people ... according to their approach ... the last people on the planet who should be suppressed from speaking up are the American people ... isn’t it? Speak up ... ladies and gentlemen ... speak up.
How to speak up.
Speak up in a way you are heard and archived. Speaking up is not just mentally accepting that so and so thing is bad ... speaking up is not cursing something that it is bad. Speaking up is conveying the message to one or more people about something. And in today’s world ... we don’t need to only speak up ... but we also need to “archive” our views.
If you speak up about something among your family or friends ... only 5 or 10 people heard it and then the moment is gone. It will just benefit 5-10 people. But if you archive it ... then it will help anyone and everyone who will access that information ... it might be a few hundred or a few million.
How to archive?
- Create your own blog and publish your views
- Comment on relevant material
- Create YouTube videos
- Setup a small site or a Wiki based on the content that you have
All these tools are freely available online for anyone and everyone. The publishing of your views is needed and will help everyone who accesses the information.
Why you should speak up?
Everyone looks at stuff from their own angle and specialties. Everyone have their own skill sets and talent ... and what each of them can offer to the same topic can be varied and different but can be very useful. It benefits in two ways:
- All angles covered. The topic is covered from every angle possible.
- Weight. We have a quantitative analysis of how many people are supporting one particular angle of a scenario ... thus bringing democracy in actual action.
There are several democracy related benefits:
- Exposure of flawed moves. Exposure of political misleading and flawed policies.
- Open discussion. Currently a few angles seen by the politicians are shoved down the throats of the people. They have to digest it and accept it as right. But an open discussion of the topic will raise the people’s concerns ... and will give more weightage to what people want.
Contribute ... speak up ... work together ... “live” a democratic life!
