LIVE: Day 2 of the April Rebellion: We will not be bystanders | twitter [dot] com | Link

(...) We must dismiss the idea of overawing the government by huge demonstrations every time someone is arrested. On the contrary we must treat arrest as the normal condition of the life of a noncooperator. For we must seek arrest and imprisonment, as a soldier who goes to battle seeks death. We expect to bear down the opposition of the government by courting and not by avoiding imprisonment, even though it be by showing our supposed readiness to be arrested and imprisoned en masse. Civil disobedience then emphatically means our desire to surrender to a single unarmed policeman. Our triumph consists in thousands being led to the prisons like lambs to the slaughterhouse. If the lambs of the world had been willingly led, they would have long ago saved themselves from the butcher’s knife. Our triumph consists again in being imprisoned for no wrong whatsoever. The greater our innocence, the greater our strength and the swifter our victory. (...) — 'Civil Disobedience' by Mahatma Gandhi [The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi. New Delhi, 1956-1994]

A sophisticated, if not sophistic diplomatic culture that includes China should now be straining all its resources to devise, as a minimal first move and with all the ingenuity and compassion it can muster, the terms of a ceasefire. Without the attempt we will be condemned to watch mass death up close – and we will never forgive ourselves. — Ian McEwan

PETER GOODMAN [Davos Man: How the Billionaires Devoured the World, 2022]: And I think vaccines are a perfect example. I mean, it’s well and good that in Davos they’re talking about vaccine inequity, just like they talk about climate change and gender imbalance and systematic racism and voting rights and all sorts of other super important issues about which they not only do very little — I mean, they put out some great reports — but then they go home, these participants, and they commence the battle to protect their privileges, to prevent actual redistribution of wealth. You know, the forum convenes under the mantra 'committed to improving the state of the world,' which is a handy phrase that connotes change. These are the ultimate beneficiaries of the status quo.
