Calm before the storm?
It's astonishing what a million-man-protest can do to a political scene!
The rhetoric has died down all of a sudden, so have the personal attacks.
Pro-government protest have been cancelled.
Daily life is (dare I say it?) taking back some of its old routine.
Something tells me this is just the calm before the storm.
A transient lull before a major battle?
All of this... started on Feb 14th.
I look back at my last posts and I'm astonished! On Feb 13th, I was ranting about how horror movies were so implausible, how death no longer scares us.
How did it all get so political, so quickly?!
Ah yes... I remember. A massive explosion.
Death became real again.
The more events escalate the easier it is to forget how it all started.
The blue "Ribbons For Truth" started as a modest sign of solidarity, and now they're an emblem of defiance.
Spontaneous candle vigils are now publicized declarations of protest.
TV channels which were unanimously carrying images of grief, are now blaring towers of propaganda.
People don't watch movies anymore, they watch televised debates.
We eat, live and breathe politics.
We've come a long way. A lot of grief and tears, a lot of strength and glory.
But... in a way, I miss Feb 13.
I miss the dull, unbelievable, predictable, stupid, silly horror movies...
