Die gesetzmäßige Revolution


In diesem Text habe ich mich einmal ein wenig mit Protestbewegungen in der heutigen Zeit auseinandergesetzt, ansonsten ein Stück weit auch mit der Pressefreiheit und mit Polizeigewalt. Wie üblich also ein bisschen von allem, und meines Erachtens ist der Text recht gut geworden. Wer also wissen möchte, wie ich zu diesen Dingen stehe, kann ja einmal hereinschauen, es lohnt sich, wie immer. 😀
Es gibt jetzt auch ein paar Bilder mehr, um die Textwüsten aufzulcokern. Kritik, Kommentare und sonstige Meinungsmache wie immer in die Kommentare (oder per Direktnachricht, wenn ihr das auf Telegram gesehen habt).

Viel Spaß beim Lesen, und schönen Abend noch!
