An Instructional Story

There was a funny story from Brazil, which is seemingly torn between two sides, a bit like the US and the UK are torn at the present. These two sides are the pro-military intervention and anti-corruption die-hards and the pro-democracy social development types. Anyway, one of these die-hards had apparently said that he was in favour of bringing back torture and so on. Then one of these small pro-democratic groups went out and gave him a beating, nothing too serious or anything, just a lesson. As I see it the lesson was, don’t shout too hard about what you think is right for others unless you are willing to have to live up to that.

This is addressed to all sides in all such situations, pro and anti Trumpists, pro and anti Brexiteers as well as pro and anti Lulistas.
