Anatomy Lesson

All over the world, people are fed up.
They've had enough of neo-feudalism and police-state gestapo tactics.

In Iceland and Ireland.
In Greece and in Spain.
Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain.
In Pakistan and Iraq.
In post-Fukushima Japan.
In Mexico.
And, if we're lucky, here in the United States.

You can see it in Wisconsin.
In Texas.
In some other places.

You can see it in the eyes of your next-door neighbor, arrested for photographing the actions of the police, public servants, in a public place
You can see it in the eyes of a terrified six-year-old forcibly subjected to an illegal and invasive search -- and in the eyes of parents standing impotently by.

Eyes filled with fear, with despair, with shock, with disbelief, with outrage.
And anger.

Watch out for that anger part.
Something's going to blow.

Tyrants all over need to learn an important lesson:
it's anatomically impossible to save your face and your ass at the same time.
