Blackout-Proof the protests (From Avaaz)

Middle East Unrest

Across the Middle East — in Bahrain, Libya, Yemen, and more countries every day — autocratic regimes are trying to crush unprecedented peaceful protests with brutality and blackouts. These countries are poised on the brink between liberation and enormous bloodshed — and the protesters’ ability to reach the eyes of the world could determine the outcomes.

Pope Shenouda III

So how far should the state intervene into someone’s life? does the state has the right to protect you from yourself?

How far should we comply to the state? when should we go against it? WHO has the right to encourage a certain group to go against the system? Everybody? Nobody?

Is it right to “use” religion against the state? Is it right to “use” the state against religion?

What makes sense to you personally and what doesn’t?
