Interesting! Talk about screwing with people's minds. Passion again causes action.

And as my mother would say, "Joan that's not ladylike!" That didn't work either. Very Happy

What is often dismissed, as Paulo Freire reminds us in "Pedagogy of the Oppressed," is that violence, more often than not, is initiated not by those rebelling from oppression, but by those who refuse to step down or cede their power when the people have called for change. So, in many ways, we can also think of uprisings that call for the ousting of government heads and officials as forms of "altruistic punishment," a term used by Stephen Hall to speak of a collectively loving act of faith by the people, rightly exercised with their "flesh and blood" for the greater good.
