And here is the second one

Just marketing, surely.
Yet sometime and somewhere our innocence was lost. And here we are, with a strong stink of decay up our noses and not much left to salvage from the exercise.


That idealism we have lost, in only one year

Here the first of the two videos I was referring to a couple of days ago. It could have been something similar, it could have been. Instead we went ballistic.

What is built on falsehood is false itself (Ali Ahmed)

8 aprile 2014 § Lascia un commento

Some months ago, during the mass demonstrations that helped end Morsi’s Presidency, this video went viral. A 12-year-old, Ali Ahmed, managed to excoriate the Muslim Brotherhood’s politics and political ideology, diplaying a razor-sharp ability to use university-level concepts and language to dismiss and cut open today’s most important Middle Eastern political ideology.
The video is quite amazing, so I checked it, and I could be wrong, but it does not appear to have been fabricated.

It got me thinking about Italy, and today’s M5S (this and a couple of other videos I will post asap but all concerning Egypt’s convulsions of the last couple of years).

In particular, in the video, at 1:40, Ali says ‘What is built on falsehood is false itself’. A 12-year-old.

So, when you become aware that someone is unable to think at least at the level set by a 12-year-old Egyptian boy, and even worse is a liar, you realise you cannot work or build anything with him. There is no future to be created. Only ruins.

Dove sono?
