With the increasing instability in the middle east, mainly Egypt, I can't help but comment.
Central America, a place that's past is riddled in; Civil Wars, Drug wars, Poverty, Disease, you name it. But at the same time is one of the Land marks for discovering Earths History. And now, with all this unrest in Egypt, (another Land mark for civilization on Earth) I feel that people everywhere, deep down, feel the problems in the core of their bones. And are simply paralyzed by the massive weight this holds to the future of Life on Earth.
I'm reminded of a famous quote said by Mario Savio.
"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all"
And I'd like to combine this with my Motto for life. "BECOME the change you want to see, and rest will follow"
I treat everyone how I would like to be treated. It's that same old saying our parents and religion teaches us, "Do unto others, as you would have done onto you."
But I don't see this. People complain about the problems. They believe that our system can fix them tho.To lose the system that has dictated our lives for so long seems impossible, and improbable. But what no one is considering is that perhaps our system is keeping our problems, and if anything limited the possibilities of this world.
Governments are happier with the ignorance of people. Same old story. Rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. But its getting out of control now. The poverty gaps and collapse of countries is becoming so common now. That it may soon come time for people everywhere on Earth to decide whether we destroy or save ourselves.
All humans want is their right to live, to have Food, to have Shelter. something that is given to us without conditions simply by being on Earth. But humans have for some reason designed a structure ontop of this right to invoke conditions in which you may live. No Doubt started by the Kings and rich.
It is an unnatural force to think that any group of humans has a right even if we "willingly" give them that right, to control any other human's life. especially through other systems like money economy, and markets, that we also created to keep the problems here.
The Global Human consciousness pours out its love and compassion to eachother in times of need. wherever they are in the world. We saw it in Haiti, we saw it in Pakistan, we saw it in Chile, and now we're seeing it in Egypt.
People are fighting for their right to live on Earth, and to share the resources we have left with our fellow man. We need to stop looking at this world as numbers game to get ahead. and we need to take 2 steps back and remember where we are.
No doubt I'll have more thoughts on this once I start south. Tho I'll invariably be cut off to climate of the world. I hope Future of Egypt and middle East.
