Berlin Wall and Company
Night Captain, a friend from the South, posted about Walls. He was inspired by the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of Berlin Wall, a past symbol of socialism.
According to corporate media coverage, it seems that Berlin's is the only wall that matters, even when it's absent at present.
Nigth Captain reminded that the wall lifted by the United States in the Mexican frontier causes 150 deaths every year, while the wall of Berlin, from 1961 to1989 according to data provided by anticommunist sources, took 125 lives in that time.
The Wall lifted by the State of Israel to isolate and to suffocate Palestine, measures about 721 kilometers and the international community called dramatic humanitarian consequences for the daily life of the Palestinian. A total of 187 countries condemn it as act of violation genocidist.
Soon, Europe will treat immigration issues as a bigger crime. Spain also keep walls, but nobody speaks about them.
But Berlin's is the only that matters, despite many Russian, Czech, Hungarian, Poles and German people have realized that they were deceived by capitalist machinery. Many of them were seduced and psychically pressed to yearn, making western paradise an object of desire.
The Night Captain talks about some exchange when the Wall felt down : freedom of eating Mac Donalds and zapping 181 TV channels for people that granted their brain.
The walls of the shame by Mister Sarkozy, Mrs. Merkel, Mister Brown, are the invisible walls of hunger, unemployment, illiteracy and divided societies are here, in this World. There is no anniversary celebration for them.
Thanks, Captain, and please keep reporting.
