The not-so-petite squabbles going on among the not-so-young-boys presiding over our not-so-lucky-country have raised questions about the future and decline of the March 14 movement. The boldest statement that I have read so far was made by freedom:
March 14 was a stupidity waiting to come to light, much like the continuous stupidities that the Lebanese state and its so-called guardians have been engaged in ever since its founding.
March 14 was never about bettering the conditions of the working class; it was about defending the “honour” of a clan leader and brutal capitalist, the assassination of whom led his clan to arouse the masses in a racist manner against his alleged murderers. March 14 was, more than anything else, a tribal reaction, with rival clans joining the leading clan a la “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
Bold, deeming it quotable.
