Stand up and say something

With the cops pepper-spraying octogenarians and the plutocrats laughing it up, I am thinking today of this obituary I saw in The Economist a while back.
When he talked, he sounded tired. He was. Tired of the bollocks. Tired of people not taking responsibility for their inhumaneness to their fellow man.
