Because if I did give a damn I’d do more than write a blog post about so many innocent people being killed.
Because if I did give a damn I’d do more than join a group on Facebook.
Because if I did give a damn I’d still feel guilty after “doing my little bit”.
If I did give a damn about Burma, I’d have started to apply real pressure to my local representatives and called them up and encouraged all my friends to do it.
If I did give a damn about Burma, I’d have told my government to tell the U.N. to stop being a spineless bunch of bureaucrats and just send in N.A.T.O. to level the army. An envoy alone is useless. Did it help all those in Kosovo, did it help all those in Rwanda?
If I did give a damn about Burma, I’d have sent money for guns to be bought for an armed uprising to prevent more monks and locals to be sacrificed. Better than a blog post, right?
I’ve not done any of that because I don’t really care but I’m sure I’m alone on this and being my usual contrarian self.
[…] Maybe it’s because we were all thinking about a couple of posts Damien Mulley posted aboutpeople being killed in Burma and also the use of expletives in blog […]
So you got that email too I take it? 🙂
i don’t care about anything. it’s easier that way.
Ah, come on Mulley, if we all join Amnesty International everything will be all right.
Nothing wrong bout talking bout these things.
Very clever, nobody says you should care, so why bother with the post?
