Knocking can also come from within

Post by Mikes » Tue Feb 01, 2011 1:17 am

They say what a government most fears is an educated populace. And they are right. But what governments world wide fear collectively is an inquisitive populace.

The Great Egyptian Internet Blackout of 2011 was not to stop the Egyptian people organising demonstrations about a corrupt and violent regime, although our news agencies would have us believe that was indeed the purpose. They would also have us believe the blackout came from within Egypt.

As hard as it is to believe, sometimes governments suppress information for our good, not theirs. Because the spread of revolution is the least of their fears.

All I'm saying is we've all seen the scenes of those police roadblocks and a mass of people being held back. Are they being stopped from getting somewhere or just getting out? It reminds me of the end credits of the documentary Dawn of the Dead.
