❝ Hundreds of thousands of South Korean protesters marched to President Park Geun-hye’s office, beating drums and chanting slogans, even as lawmakers considered impeaching her over an influence-peddling scandal.
I’ve been in crowds of hundreds of thousands, a million. At times, been one of the political geeks analyzing photos to calculate real turnout instead of relying on crap police estimates. There is nothing new after all about governments inflating numbers of terrorists killed and rolling out imaginary reductions in public opposition.
Point remains – it takes a while for serious anger to grow in a population that is learning they were pawns in a game of greed and profit, same as it ever was, lied to and misled by a populist pimp.
