“Descartes’ point is not simply that the blind in some way ‘see’ as we do, that there is no important difference – the stakes are much higher. It is not the blind who have to be compared to “us” (who see), it is “we” who have to be compared to the blind in order to be able to understand what happens when we see.”
– Alenka Zupancic
“You may have to cut the flowers, but it will not stop the spring.”
– Che Guevara
Rui Prager was abducted to Japan on June 15th, 2010. The Japanese refuse to return him, and have failed to provide his location or assist in any way. The United States has not made any consequential demand on Japan to return abducted children. Thousands of children are abducted within and into Japan every year.
Rui’s father has not seen, heard or held him since the abduction.
