Mass revolts and uprisings are, among many other things, also great fun, a very liberating experience.

Mass civil revolts and uprisings are, among many other things, also great fun, a very liberating experience.

You discover another side of yourself, a feeling that was previously unknown to you, buried under the constraints of your daily life and your fears of all sorts.

I have read some articles about Breivik’s case in the prominent Turkish newspapers recently. They gave a simple reason for Breivik’s massacre that he experienced some ‘tragic’ childhood traumas. One of the headings of the newspapers was ‘He massacred because of a Turkish man.’ According to the report, Breivik testified that the father of one of his friends, a Turkish diplomat, destroyed his bicycle when he was 7.

The 'sexy' EU vs. the 'ugly' others, surrounding it...

“The European commission has been forced to withdraw a high-budget video promoting the EU amid accusations that it depicts other cultures in a racist manner. A row broke out after the enlargement directorate of the European commission, which is responsible for the expansion of the EU, released a video clip that was designed to appeal to young voters.”  - The Guardian (Full Article)

Why do TV companies produce The Apprentice and Dragon's Den but not How to be Union Rep? Why does almost everyone in EastEnders own a small business? Why do news outlets assume that when stock markets go up it's good for everyone.

And if the media are "only giving people what they want", then why do people want what they want - and is it true that that is all the media giving them?

John Molyneux argues that the media ara biased - not as in right wing but as in pro-capitalist. And, as almost all mass media are owned or controlled by either capitalist companies or capitalist states, it cannot be otherwise.

Molyneux warns against the notion that the media are all-powerful, looking at the limits to their power and the possibilities for combating them. Through critically using the mass media and creating our own media, we can contribute to the anti-capitalist struggle

Well what have they got in common?

They both want a better life for themselves and their families.  They’d like to have a comfortable home, in a safe environment, maybe some nice neighbours to share a beer with every once in a while.  

A job where they feel valued for their work.  Safe working conditions, fair treatment and enough income to cover the rent, the bills, and that occasional beer.  They both want to send their children to school with clothes on their bodies, shoes on their feet and books in their backpacks.

What do TDs do? Introduce Law...Talk Talk 575 job losses. Minister Bruton/FG TDs say they are not happy how companies give such short notice to staff before closing and asking them.
