The Golden Rule

As I grow up... I'm getting more cynical I'm afraid.... its been a while since I learned the golden Rule.
"He who has the
Gold makes the Rule!"

Money is a resource. Some have plenty of it, so they buy out a couple of mouthpieces ( newspapers, TV channels, storytellers) to give any story flavors and spices to make it look kinda like how they want it to
.
One can argue that the single source of information is the biggest threat to democracy.

A good example of this is the Alayam propaganda machine whinning like a baby about the demonstrations happening daily, and claiming that investments are shying away from Bahrain because of their frequency (and not from ripping them off by some people)....
That is fair... but this leaves us wondering.... wasnt the Bahrain representative at the Swiss human rights agency or whatever proud that there is an average of 2 protests a day in Bahrain?
Funny... our rights to protest are a great show off over there (compared to the region we're in) but the paintbrush newspaper makes it look like something way out of style HERE.

I have an idea... if we persuade folks up in switzerland to subscribe to Alayam, the editor might change his attitude about what's going on. They might take out full page adds inviting people to one of these gatherings like a press release

"LAST CHANCE TO PROTEST FOR GOLDFISH RIGHTS, For three days only. 7:30 pm
BE THERE, OR BE SQUARE!"

Alayam and protests remind us of something. Whats the deal with the cartoon? Everyday someone draws something touchier than this everywhere else.. why is that turban dude restricted area?
PLUS.. it was funny...
I mean the beard and the election results... classic

No wonder we cant get our full rights.. WE DONT WANT THEM !
Usually authorities try to silence the public... this time we're doing it for them.....

Smart!

We really need to start an anti-rallying committee which will meet with rally organisers before every protest and argue why the rally SHOULDN'T take place. This way we can at least make sure that only the reasonable ones occur.
