Zaria Massacre: Between the Army and El Zakzaky

No individual or group of individuals has the right to go and block a public thoroughfare not to talk of blocking a highway.

You have a right to have whatever procession you want to embark on, or even have a peaceful protest. But you have no right to prevent other road users from passing through.

One man’s right to swing his arms ends where another man’s right to defend his noise begins.

And any government anywhere that allows such lunacy is equally lunatic.

We have lived in a society where wrongs have become rights for so long we can’t even differentiate rights from wrongs.

We have lived in a state of collective lunacy for so long that we don’t even know what is sane, and what is insane.

We have lived is a state of denial for so long we do not even know what is really happening to us anymore.

A society where anything goes, a society where people don’t even know day from night…a society where all sorts of arguments are made in support of the unbelievable.

We have lived in a society where wrongs have

become rights for so long we can’t even differentiate

rights from wrongs. We have lived in a state of

collective lunacy for so long that we don’t

even know what is sane, and what is insane

Someone will stoop at the middle of a very busy highway to defecate, and when a speedy car knocks him down, Nigerians will blame the driver for not recognising that the man is answering nature’s call.

Actions and reactions are only equal and opposite only in Physics textbooks and laboratories, not in human interactions.

In human interactions, if you slap me, do not expect me to simply return the slap, if I have a gun, I might blast your brains, and if I have an axe, I will break your legs. Don’t go about slapping people, or spitting on people expecting them to pay you back in kind.

And if you are stupid enough to go about slapping the State, or spitting at the State, it is expected that the full weight of the State will be brought against you.

I hate it when people go and roundly mess up or exhibit their stupidities only to turn around and start soliciting for public pity!
