Bahrain: Bloggers and the OppositionVia Danish blog Angantyrs hjørne:
Bloggers and the Opposition!
For me personally, blogging is a fun activity I do whenever I have the time and access to the Internet is not fucked up in this monopoly kingdom of Wonderland. It is a venue for me to speak freely, without any restraint or censorship to what I presume to be a like-minded select audience. The thrill of being able to 'publish' whatever I feel like without any double-checks in exhilarating and liberating in one go - even for someone like me who has crossed the redlines in conventional media more than I care to boast! What I have enjoyed the most about this blog really is the fact that it is a very positive outlet for all my frustrations. It is therapeutic, especially when you click with people from all over the world who share the same concerns, fears, dreams and hopes for a better tomorrow where people of all colours and faiths will hopefully all live side by side in a tolerant world one day.
The fact that there are so many bloggers out there speaking freely and expressing themselves with no inhibitions or restraints is unheard of. It is alarming for this child-state, which controls its citizens like little children. The fact that people are resorting to the Internet to rant and rave about things is paramount to a system which is losing its grip. This is not acceptable. This is not the norm. This is rebellion. It leads to anarchy and chaos. It amounts to treason. This is the crux of it. They want things in order. They don't want to hear our daily nagging. They don't want us to show any levels of dissent, because in Wonderland everything is booming and their is a boost. The erection is all year long. It never flops.
I personally blog because I am. I blog because it gives me an instant thrill. It gives me a high. If they want to take that away from me, I will not resist it. It's all theirs. I will find another means to speak. For I will not be silenced. I will not shut up for in speaking my mind I am doing a service to my country. It is the cowards who see wrong and don't speak up who should be asked what they are doing for Wonderland and not us. We are patriots and our allegience is for our land. Our Land. The land of our ancestors. The infidels of Dilmun!
