Free Burma!

Can we make a difference? I really don’t know. But can we allow ourselves not to try?

  1. No, you can’t make a difference.

    The only thing that would make a difference is if an external military force comes in. Absent that, no, there is nothing anyone outside of Burma can do.

    What gets me is that often the same people who are “anti-war” are also the same people who go around saying we must do something about what is going on in Burma or Darfur or wherever. So I guess they are really just anti-war unless its an issue they support.

    If you want to go about saying Free Burma or Save Darfur and go to protests regarding those situations it isn’t helping the people in those situations. It is just feeding your own ego. But of course that’s what’s important isn’t it. As long as it make you feel like a good person then whether it has any real effect isn’t relevant, right!
