Placards at an Islamabad protest rally

The wisdom of crowds

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Far more people turned up on Islamabad’s Constitution Avenue to protest against Gen Musharraf than ever before.

Protesters were also carrying banners and placards inscribed with various slogans. One placard read: “Reduce the poor’s burden, reduce army by 80 per cent”. Another banner read: “_India is a threat to Pakistan is a misconception_. Poverty and unemployment are more serious threats to the country”. “Judiciary is superior to army. Get lost military dictator,” read a banner carried by some lawyers. [Dawn, emphasis added]
