Seems to me that a great deal of people around the world have just had enough of being ruled by self imposed demigods that have no interest in the well-being of the masses. What is power? What is it worth? Why does anybody want to rule over anybody else? I have always seen this desire as some kind of mental illness, and I'm not just talking about the recent unrest in the Arab world. Here in the West, in spite of our so called 'Democracy' we are still 'ruled' by people that believe they have a God given right to rule, rather than to serve. The question today, for all nations is, 'What is to be done then, to force equality?' For surely it is this inequality that is the cause of so much suffering. We could all make a start perhaps, by revelling in each others differences, rather than pointing the suspicious finger. We are all children of the universe whatever our personal beliefs.We all have a right to be here. With all its sorrow and broken dreams, we still all live in a beautiful world.
