hero #1

John Pilger. My hero. 

"We're invited to be obedient and passive and to believe there is nothing we can do to influence the course of apparently invincible events- whether they are the criminal disasters in the middle east, or the distortion of resources and wealth in our own societies.

Then suddenly we glimpse the possible in the action of those with nothing, such as the heroism of the people in Gaza in breaking out of the prison of their homeland.

They ought to inspire us to break down our own walls."
