Recounting the myth of the flying stone
Ibrahim El-Salahi: This is a strange thing. When you are ruled by people who have nothing but the weight of their power over you, you are subjected to something and not allowed to y about like a free bird. Your freedom has been taken away from you and becomes like a huge rock that is going to destroy your world, and you can do nothing—not a thing—about it.
