Once-over 2011

In Afasia's corner... on December 29, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Did we really pass an inspiring 2011?

Just stop for a moment and think, what do you remember of?

What did you learn? What did you progress? What did you improve?

Now ask this same question in plural!. What did we learn this year about living together? What did we progress about corruption? What did we improve about ourselves?

I hear some of you saying a big NOTHING!. So that was a lost of an entire year! And I hear some of you counting the things which has happened in 2011.

So let’s put together all good and bad things,

No more Bin Laden! – But his friends keep rolling. (He has been killed on 2nd May 2011 in Abbottabad – Pakistan)

On May 26th Ratko Mladić(killer of ~30.000 Bosnians) arrested in Serbia.

Some sunny days in Arab land! Yes, but a sun covered with blood, lie, a war won with the help of other’s hands(guns) would really create a free land? If you cannot win your freedom by your hearth, by your hands, by you and only because you want it, if you debt your freedom to someone else, do you really believe that is your freedom?

Economical Crisis all over the world! We will keep occupying centers, squares, arenas, plazas etc We are the indignant generation of the century. We are the children of Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Ghandi who fought against discrimination, who fought against social differences between riches and poor’s, who tried to make things better for everyone equally, some of them are died to light our way. Rest in peace!.

10,933 people died in Mexican Drug-war in only 2011! 45,584 Total (December 2006–October 2011) ( Wikipedia)

Tōhoku earthquake in Japan, 9.0 – 15,828 died, 3760 lost, 5942 injured. Fukushima nuclear power plant is damaged. Once again we could see how dangerous is having a nuclear central next to our heads.

July 7th Artificial Organ Transplant is achieved.

22nd July, Anders Behring Breivik killed 85 persons in Oslo, Norway.

22nd August, Muammar Gaddafi has been murdered by French armed Libyan Rebels.

Afghan civilian deaths Jan-Jun 2011 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-14149692

Total number of deaths – 1,462
80% of deaths due to insurgent activity
14% of deaths due to Afghan or international security forces
Nato air strikes killed 79 civilians
Nato night raids caused 2% of civilian deaths

Israel, discrimination of women like in 1960s of America. Women cannot travel on front seats like it was before in USA, black people could not travel in buses mixed with whites, if they could they could not travel on front seats. Or they could not even go out not to be murdered. 2011’s Israel. They want to close their women home. They don’t want to see women in buses. Unsupportable racist movements for color, for sex, for race etc. are keep going even in millennium. I hope that violence against women/men or simply opposition will decrease on following years!

We have sent a Space Shuttle Atlantis to discover more over. I hope we are not going space to repeat the same exact mistakes there!.

Humanity discovered Justin Bieber.

While Libyan were celebrating Gaddafi’s death in streets, in United Kingdom billions were celebrating the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Between 2010 – 2011 we have seen what happens to you when you don’t shout your mouth and say the truth. Julian Assange, the editor of Wikileaks accused sexual harassment and his judgment process is ongoing.

I am not sure if we need a conclusion for entire 2011! I believe it brings its own conclusion inside by our own experiences.

I wish you a happy new year and a peaceful 2012!.

Thanks and Best Regards

  1. I hope the things we learned do not literally mean “nothing” we have seen lots of tragedy which people themselves created -horribly- or lies which people keep telling themselves and the others. We have seen some results as well and as we already seen same scene before, we have seen that the war cannot be a solution if you are willing to “save”.

    Several different sources, including religious and also anti-religious sources telling that’s coming to an end. That’s why we’ll be seeing more “operations” rushing all around the world this year. They are well equipped and well informed about the things we do not “like” to believe.

    They can be whatever they are willing to be or they can make agreements and sign contracts with whoever they want to do with. It wont make any difference at “the end” of this world.

    And finally, i wish a new, brilliant, shiny and promising year to everyone

    • Our wish of writing an article and reviewing 2011 was for exactly same reason. Hope, which we bring in our hearths. Hope about not letting them repeating same mistakes, saying same lies while looking at our eyes. Killing same father, mother and children over and over. There is one John Lennon quote that I really like, “We live in a world where we hide to make love! While violence is committed in broad daylight.”

      I hope we can reconcile with ourselves on 2012.

      Thanks a ton for your time, for reading us and for your wonderful wishes!..

  2. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool! 571394
