Late Friday Night Ode To ... Peaceful Democratic Uprisings

Back there last Saturday, I wrote the following:
As we applaud our Tunisian and Egyptian brothers and sisters, let us keep firmly in mind that it is they whom are bravely uprising in order to win their birthrights of freedom and liberty that are the bona fides teachers here - whereas we are naught but de facto spoiled pupils in dire need of lessons in democratic civic responsibility, vigilance and courage.
Looks like I'm in not-so-bad company in thinking this way, eh?

Hence, quite à propos, I offer you a classic from The Cult:

So - keep on rockin' in the Free World, eh?

'Nuff said ;-)
