For the last few days, there has been strange correlation. As I start watching some Howard Zinn video (apart from the video becoming unavailable and other network problems) on the Internet, there comes a long unscheduled power cut.
The institute here has its own power station. And the power goes in some places in the institute, not in others.
Sounds like paranoid? Of course, it does.
A cut in electric power supply for me means no tea, no food, no fans during that period. And it’s already really hot in the beginning of March, a time that used to associated with spring in other northern cities.
And no computer after the battery runs out.
The correlation suggests a powerful powerless strategy to deal with dissidence and dissent, even of the most mild kind.
