Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have the same feeling. Figth now the violence expression is quite smart. No killing, no face to face with local people.

It is a little bit weird. Sad for the situation, happy for the way it is awakening people. And worried that they will not be smart enough to focus the violence.

Civil rights movement in the US is a clear example. Violent acts were really smart, localized but brutal. Combined with pacifism and mass movement, it worked. I do not if they would be that smart now, so I do not know if they will get the big chance we are all rooting for in the poor ans poor working ares of Europe.

Weird being happy but not knowing if I could stay happy a lot longer. Happy but not cheering. Understanding but not supporting. I guess I am a coward all in all.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
