Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
Some heavy reading.
Small motions of Civic Duty must be small. Show me the smallest observance a citizen may make. Measure from it the effort, implication, and value of reward. Combine these to interpretive metrics and play.
Plant your tongue firmly in cheek and compare across communities, then reinterpret the Police Blotter. The fact that we have them at all is pretty telling - Blotters that is. Their presence indicates "Humans Are Here." A kind of Syndrome, defined by a general rutting and bashing of various meats, minerals, and things that rot after a while anyway.
Anywhere enduring H.A.H.S. must be on guard night and day for the excessive mixing of disillusionment and Crossed H - the one from the beginning and the one from the end. Bad Crossed H can mean Home Trouble, and I certainly hope the marches planned in India are done with this in mind. The operative phrase is "gathering is not clotting even if it looks the same." Clot is monoculture bad. Gather isn't polyculture, but permaculture. Gathering in a time of hardship should be expected. It is a known process that should not be avoided by large masses of people out of fear or intimidation.
What is on trial here, anyway? The fact that disingenuous behavior exists or that we have placed the power of total communal ruin too deeply within institution? If your homeland is to be riven wouldn't it be nice to at least be party to the preamble? Waves that form out of nowhere to swamp sitting politicians simply don't form out of nowhere. That should be enough for honest citizens to refuse to be overthrown themselves by such a wave. Claiming the problem has been known long is proof that all assemblies must be peaceful - these are assemblies of people that are late to their own defense. May each act accordingly.
But we need institutions if we are to gather with regularity in any large numbers, so reforming the existing should trump burning down. It seems that the codification that allows institution is great for auditors because it can cut the most rambunctious out of sensitive positions. Those auditors had better be Tight to play that game. Rambunction goes feral and to seed soon after the heralds of disillusionment and clotting begin to sneer and
It is not naturally to the good that these offended ones join their will if violence by action or reaction is accepted by them. The cumulative experience of corruption is not healed by the slaughtering of current targets. This knowledge can be expressed when families lock arms together and stand for simple justice. Do not leave the boys out to throw rocks at paper tiger bad guy. If the current targets were truly to blame you would see isolation in the criminal occurrence whether by M.O., location, or affiliation. The pattern reported in the Guardian does not indict the currently indicted. When a Public Servant goes bad you must deal with it sternly. When many Public Servants go bad you must treat them like children. Clearly it is a family problem. We know something about those in my country too.
With this in mind, is it too far for an Ally to encourage respectful public demonstration of the Indian people? Is this a step too far against the diplomatic expectation of International Relations. Could it be received as a show of faith in the core integrity of the Incumbents now turned Inquisitors?
This is the question I would send off in a bottle to the people now faced with widespread inquest. This is the sort of situation a bad ally exploits, so watch the U.S. very closely right now for her citizen's sake, my Indian friends. I like India, and I will like India more if She can help my country understand the respectful way to assist Her people.
How does a compassionate ally act at a time like this? Let's read about it in the newspapers.
