  •  Thanks for publicizing a (9+ / 0-)

    story the corporate media is putting on the back page, if they're running it, at all.

    What I like is the phrase "well-organized demonstrators." (I think you have used this, or something similar.) They hate this. They want "violent" demonstrators for their brutal U.S.-backed governments to quash. Heck, this even rings a bell from domestic situations. Oakland, anyone? NYC?

    Those are only my initial impressions, as somebody pretty ignorant of Kuwaiti history and politics. I look forward to playing back the clips you've embedded.

      And you're right.

      The people, world wide, are coming into their own.

      I've got so much hope for the future.

      •  If anything will, the uprisings (5+ / 0-)

        of the people against the oligarchs will save the species. That's not a hyperbolic statement. Where I'm more guardedly optimistic, is regarding the potential co-option of populist uprisings by fascistic elements, as is apparently already happening in countries like Greece, according to some diarists here.

        The desperation of low-information people, can and will be exploited, I fear.

        •  Which is why campaigning can't end November 7th. (4+ / 0-)

          We have an information campaign to carry forward so there are fewer and fewer low information voters. The better voters understand the causes and effects surrounding issues, the more their votes will correspond with reality, rather than reflect passing opinion.

          This is good, because we know that reality has a well-known liberal bias.

          There are many adoptable cats and dogs being rescued around the country. You can save a life by adopting one.
