Egyptians should follow Gandhi's example
Who the hell wants to go to a public square and throw rocks at each other? Not me. I like to watch the UFC, but getting run down by dudes on camels and getting rocks thrown at me is not my idea of fun. Maybe I'm a wuss. I don't know.
Seems like Egyptians should follow the example of Mahatma Gandhi and use non-violent means of protest. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe Mubarak won't give a damn. Maybe the west should stop its imperialist habit of supporting dictatorships worldwide.
They should at least watch the movie that was made about Gandhi's life.
Or they could keep doing what they are doing right now, and throw rocks and molotov cocktails at each other. Whatever floats their boat I guess.
The best way to end a dictatorship is to 'stop feeding the pig', as my colleague the Anarchist DBA says. That is, stop working, stop paying taxes, and let the tax hungry state starve and waste away.
But you can expect gasoline prices to increase either way.
