The King is naked

The Cynic has an excellent post on the latest violence that hits Egypt. The picture is worth a thousand words, but what is quite interesting about it, besides the blatant beating and disrespect for human life by our police is:

1- It appears to me that only officers are doing the beating. The soldiers are simply watching their "pharaoh" do his job and dare not interfere.

2- The guy in the foreground is simply watching the whole thing. A classic example of apathy.

The picture depicts the effectivness of our regime. A mix of god-like authority and apathy keep the population under control.
