When the Government Literally Kicks You in The Ass

This is illustrative of the unmitigated sense of power governments have these days, i.e., they don’t give a damn what We the Little People think.

This is a shot of an adviser to Turkey’s Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan kicking a man in Soma yesterday.  The man was taking part in a protest over the death of 300-some miners killed in an explosion earlier this week.  There has been a lot of talk there about how miners and their families have felt unsafe for years.

So when we see a government official kick someone who’s concerned about that and protesting that and hoping to make things better, we get the message loud and clear as to whose side the government’s on — as in — not the miners.
