Why should i care...?

Over the last weeks i have been intensively covering the news about Egypt. Okay i admitt it was a bit too much, because it began to affect my personal life too heavy. My exams i should have learned for, my time at all, my love life. Thats why i stepped on the break with that and i stopped covering the issue that intensively.

Also i came to know that some people started talking behind my back, its not like people couldnt talk to me, even critisizm is welcome, as long as it is at least a bit productive. And this one is!
So why they started talking behind my back that i am exaggerating over this issue, why not telling myself, so i see their point and i might step back in the intensivity. But if i dont know that other people see it this way, i cant change it.
For those who are too much of a coward to tell me directly, here is some thoughts leading me to my opinion and the coverage of the recent problemacy:
During this time, i often heard four words which made me really angry: Why should i care?

Well about the issue itself: I think this uprising, as well as the Lebanese movement, are really important for us. As Humans, evern a bit as europeans, you just should start looking into the past AND the future.
Right after Lebanon, Egyptians started demonstrating and demanding a change, Syria was quick to introduce changes.

A spectre is hauning Sinai - the spectre of freedom!

Clearly you feel the pan-arabic region uprising and fighting for their freedom, for their tomorrow, for their dignity. And this could be a big step towards a better future, but why should i care?
Why should i care the thousands who has been dieing for their, their childrens and their grandchildrens freedom? It doesnt make sense because i dont know them, right?
Well did i knew the french people back in 1789?
No i didnt, but still i love every single one of them who died in the streets of Paris. Because THEY are the reason, we live (relatively) free in the western world nowadays.

Without this movement, today wouldnt be closely to what it is recently. They have been clearing the path for our own freedom. People all over the world started to think why they should care about the frenchmen's cause? Yeah now some years later, we see why they should have done
And clearly i see paralels between the french revolution and the egypt liberty movement. They could be the way, the arab people start living their lives in freedom, the world would be one step closer to freedom, the world, WE LIVE IN could start to look a little bit more like Utopia.
So why should i care? I dont see any reason except having friends down there for those i started to be affraid every single day, since i heard about the uprising.
THIS! Is r´the reason why we should care and start showing solidary, for a hope of a better tomorrow! Maybe it wont be our tomorrow, or those of our children, but at some point, people will benefit from that, and this alone is worth fighting for!

I the left german movement i heard so many people talking about "Liebig 14", a squatted house. And when i read and heard opinions about that, they started to say that this is about freedom, about liberty, about the lack of governmental control. Wait!
Isnt that the same reasons why we should start to care about egypt? Are they different, just because they are arabs? Because they are Moslems?
Obviously they must be, else categories wouldnt have been introduced.
I think german leftist movement is solidary. But only with things which pays off for them directly!
So why should i care?

Why should i care freedom at all? Life is so much more convenient when i dont have to think about what i am going to do tomorrow, right? Life is so much more pleasure when someone is telling me what i like and what i dont like. And especially life is so joyful when i am exactly as everyone other, so why should i care?

Why should i care anything which is not concerning (directly) germany or our private lifes?
The answer is easy. back a few years, financia crisis showed us, and the one before that, and the one before THAT. Its because nowadays, you cant just see a single country. You always have to watch in how far every action will affect the other. Because one thing we learned out of the financial crisis, is that our world is like a spiders web, if you remove one string, the others start to get lose. And the more strings you will remove, the more lose the web ggets. So basically everything, going on everywhere affects us. If you cant see it now, you will see it another day, but everything is connected. Except some rainforest native tribes, they arent connected and they live their lives on their own, but do we want to live like that, just for being independant from the rest of the world?

We arethe vioce of freedom.
We are the voice of liberty!
We are everyone and no one!
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Solidarity is a Weapon.
Expect us!
