Standing up for Truth

One of the most relevant themes we’re focused on here in Brazil these days is the exploding movement for freedom reverberating around the world. Martin Luther King stated that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.

Isn’t it this demand that is echoing through all these diverse societies these days? And the oppressors, to echo King’s language, are not giving up easily, as is being witnessed by Occupy activists everywhere.

Dr. King, though, I don’t think really understood why it has always been that way. What causes the oppressor to cling so tenaciously to power is not well understood or broadcast, and needs to be. Norberto Keppe‘s science of Analytical Trilogy does that.

But the other side of the coin is that to be a fighter against the barbed wired of oppression takes some cojones. And it is this courage that must be summoned from deep inside us if we’re to vanquish injustice once and for all.
