Did it really happen? Yes. It really happened. Shocking. Also, a little amusing. Amusing to see people breaking into the democratic heart of their own country to…to do what exactly? After watching some footage from inside the building I could hear the mob think: ‘Hey, we’re in! Now what?’ A bit like my parents’ dogs, two Lhasa Apso‘s, who sometimes would be allowed to ‘guard’ the house. Both of them would be on their leash, tied to a pin in the wall of our porch. They barked intensely to every dog that passed. Until one of them broke his leash in the heat of the moment. He just stood their, watching in silence, not sure what to do with his gained freedom.
Nevertheless, the thing that happened yesterday is a logical climax to the four year long story that one man told. Anyone denying the importance of language is a fool. Words do matter.
