This note is in support of the Turkish people protesting against the freedom of speech, and the men and women who are taking the beating to stand up for their freedom. Hail to the Facebook and Twitter for becoming the medium for the ordinary to communicate freely.

FB&T has placed the power in the hands of the people to monitor the rule of law and injustice everywhere on the earth. Eventually this power will pounce the dictators and abusers of power even in democracies, it was proven in Tahrir square (Egypt) and now it’s proving it in Taksim square (Turkey).
FB&T is good for the world and is good for America, empowering the power to everyone. It’s a form of people power and its democracy in action. FB&T empowers you and I.
The following three pictures are shameful, a man is on the ground face-up, and the policeman is stamping his boot on his face while another one pointing the bayonet towards the man. The other picture has a woman daring the water hose, reminds me of Selma where the police did the same thing with African Americans, the third picture is a woman daring the police might.

Shame on the police to resort to violence against demonstrators, it happens in democracies too. There are two difficult pictures from India and Chile in the last few months – where the women demonstrators were mercilessly beaten by the police brutes. I hope they have found the men and punished them accordingly.
 Army brutalities are all over the world in the communist as well as the democratic systems. No nation can cast the first stone including our own US of A.  The only grace with democracies is that the guilty will be eventually punished and even fellow men in service will resist joining the bullies and do resist in muffed voices– as they did in Abughraib in Iraq and other places in Afghanistan. Unless the rule of law prevails, and everyone is accountable, the world continues to rot, and affects the psyche of the entire society.
However, the FB&T and the cell phones in the hands of the powerless have given them power to stop the injustices and brutalities. 
There is always that chance; the bad guys can use FBT as their propaganda as well. But their view is so narrow in the larger Facebook, that it does not grow exponentially. I have seen those views emerge here on my wall, but disappeared when three or four good men and women questioned them. Truth ultimately triumphs!
I have seen the extremists in my (Republican) party resort to false propaganda against Obama, they have failed miserably. The idiots need to focus on nation building and not waste public funds on harassing the do gooders. Here is a warning to my Republican friends, unless the moderate majority among us speaks up, we all will fall in 2014 with them, the bad boys among us.
