There’s something to be said about countries who don’t idly sit around bitching about the state of their country on Facebook. Instead, they get out there, rip shirts off CEOs, burn uber cars, and light up the streets.
I used to think violence was not the answer but as the separation of power also creates a physical barrier between those making decisions and those being effected, I often wonder how much longer we can remain pacifists?
I’m just saying that if a group of people asked me to help them stop Martin Shkreli and whoever else was on the board of Turing Pharmaceuticals from attending a board meeting that would raise the price of a life saving drug from $13.50 to $750 per pill, I can’t say I would say no.
15 years ago, I would have said hell no. That’s not the way to get anything done. Today, I can’t say that. I’m not saying this is a good thing, it’s not. I’m just saying that as I become more cynical, I give less fucks about “reasonable” solutions.
*I realize I’m now on some list. I’m probably on a lot of lists.
