Sunshine is the best disinfectant (Louis Brandeis)
The world is full of cruel, audacious dictatorships that routinely violate human rights. These violations are outrageous, infuriating, and heartbreaking. But private citizens, non-governmental organizations, and even governments, seem helpless to effect change. Perhaps our best option is a media campaign to expose all these violations and the guilty parties. So I commend all publications that provide an open forum for international dialogue and debate. Hopefully, this will not only shame dictators and their henchmen into better behavior, but also sensitize all of us to the danger of government’s abuse of power.
