A question of a Revolution
I have a little someone that once he saw what I'm writing he shouted "don't you have anything better to do?"
No I don't. 'Cuz Imma fucking bloggar.
So, you'd probably have heard for the murder of a well known reporter, that also spawned one of the biggest Greek blogs in the Internet. Sokratis Golias. He's dead by a faceless, person less "revolutionary organisation" leaving questions on why a bunch of "rebels" killed an independent reporter such as Sokratis.
And then, I question the usage of the word "Revolution", in a political and sociological meaning by this organization. Are they really revolutionaries that work for a sort of change by terror or just a poor branch of the established mafia?
Here's why I think that they are the latter, just from the bad usage of the word "Revolution".
Revolutions happened throughout the history of humanity. From the French Revolution, to the Industrial Revolution and the fall of Berlin Wall. These Revolutions have several characters: Social, Political, Industrial and productivity, technology. All of them had one common thing: They had a massive scale.
I don't know if you get it, dear reader. A lot of people work for a revolution to be and change things around, once and for all. It was the masses, the sheer number of people that make the change. It doesn't have to be bloody or noisy or whatever. It's based on the power of the mass. That's what happened before, that's what will always happen because for a reason or another, the substance of a Revolution is a huge crowd of people while an idea is just the spirit.
So, is a mystic organization that kills people on choice something included to a Revolution?
The answer is obviously, no. It's not giving away any ideas that people would revolt on, thus they miss the spirit. They are an organisation that works in secrecy and it stays on blowing stuff up and shootings thus it's not massive so, it misses the substance. But the most tragic part is that they self proclaim themselves as "Revolutionaries" so the mass media could misinform the ignorant crowds on what a Revolution is. Forgetting that Revolution is THEIR power and NOT the power of some terrorists or just executors of established mafia, they also forget to be human. To oppose, to judge and think.
the become opinion-less sheeps.
That's how this works I guess...
