I've Been Thinking:
Did you ever notice that in totalitarian countries lots of people come out for protests?
You know why?
Some are paid with money, some are paid with favors like free university tuition. Others are paid with a promise - if they do not attend the protests, they will be arrested.
In Damascus, Syria recently tens of thousands of protestors came out to the streets to march against Israel and against settlements. The protest had a name. It was called the March of Anger Against Israel.
In Syria, as is the case in most dictatorships, nobody is ever permitted to protest against a domestic policy or a national policy.
In Syria the only protests are about Israel or the United States.
