Wildfire

Interesting development. At first, Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution, then the protests in Yemen – and now Egypt. Revolution is in the air and it looks like a wildfire. In all three countries it’s the people opposing their authoritarian and corrupt government, opposing politicians that use them and putting their long standing leaders on notice. Mohammed ElBaradei, the Egyptian Nobel Laureate and former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has spent a year trying to unite Egypt’s fractious opposition. Now he said that the youth movement had accomplished that on it’s own. Let’s see what will happen, but I have no doubt that Dr ElBaradei will become a key figure, not only for Egypt’s politics, but to inspire a pan-Arabic movement, to shake up governments that are responsible for social problems, unemployment, inflation, corruption and oppression – and war. Given Dr ElBaradei’s background, reputation, and connections he is set to be a saviour and to lead safely through the instability and  rough tides of real change. It is going to be quite a ride and we will witness it closely. Actually, Facebook and Twitter have been key tools in organising the protests, but are reported to have been blocked across the country at times.

Isn’t is absolutely fascinating how everything is connected ?

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Thanks in part to humanities increased abilities to communicate there is a coming together to alter/change/modify various fixed political systems. These abilities are no fluke. They represent a continuing expression of individual and then a collective growth of consciousness both physically manifested and metaphysically.

    These technological tools enable a coming together of like spirited persons. Likely we will witness many such expressions worldwide for the foreseeable future. Some will view this as a rise of anarchy and it is to be feared. But the wheels have been set in motion so there will be no turning back.

    To me we are simply birthing ourselves. It was predictable.
