Sir Isaac Newton: A Revolutionary Mind

When engaging in dialogue around violence caused by police, soldiers, and private security firms, the supporters of unchecked violence always come across as entirely ignorant.  Perhaps they are not ignorant of the bloodied skulls, cracked orbital sockets, and broken rib cages; perhaps they feel people always have it coming.  What they are certainly ignorant of is Newton’s Third Law of Motion:

III. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

People around the world must also embrace Newton’s First Law of Motion:

Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

In the above video, the cruel irony is that the security soldier who appears to be the most brutal is also the one who clearly runs away.  The one who appears to be asking him to stop, is the one who gets walloped.  Just goes to show that we are our Brothers’ keepers, and what they do, reflects on us all.
