"March 14 was a stupidity waiting to come to light"

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.

  1. after 14 feb. almost all 14 march figures said “lama shifna elness be sa7et el7ureyah ulna sar lazem net7arak ma 3ad ba2a bada”…it was a strange statement cause that means they were doing nothing and with no plans or direction, reacting according to the emotions of the street which is usually not a 100% rational reactions…they were not moving according to the real interest of the lebenese nation…assuming they know what a national interest is…you cant run a country because angry people are asking you to do irrational things….that is why you call a person a leader cause he knows how to chose….14 march was never what they said it was….it was built on racism towards syria not on the love of lebanon…
