“You Can’t Change Anything” – Wrong And Useless.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/apr/02/aung-san-suu-kyi-new-era-burma

The struggle against tyranny is nearly always uphill, but nothing is quite such a gift to the powers that be as the bleating know-all perma-critic and the “There’s no point / you can’t change anything” mantra. The vast majority of them know nothing like the privations forced on Aung San Suu Kyi, but it doesn’t stop them scoffing from a position of such freedom as won by others. Doubtless they’d have come out with the same bollocks to Ghandi and the sufferagettes. And doubtless they wouldn’t have been listened to. We should ignore them too. Onwards and upwards 🙂
