   What will Protesters demand next? Like any thing in life: “be careful what you ask for, you may get it” and something not wanted along with it! Some have posted foreclosure notices on banks in one American state. Maybe protesters will want to ban politicians from government as conditions develop! Since layers have stated that corporations aren’t human and don’t have the same rights as us; won’t people start to say: “Aren’t politicians also part of an evil system that’s not human?” Their paid and given privileged rights as a governing body. Yet many are letting their citizens descend into financial decay, while these officials are living lavishly! – Ecce. 8:14

     Time Magazine’s person of the year (2011); is The Protester. In its article, Kurt Anderson stated that: “the End of History, summed up by Francis Fukuyama‘s influential 1989 essay declaring that mankind had arrived at the “end point of … ideological evolution.” That was is reference to triumphant “Western liberalism.” If that started to occur in the Arab world then, what accounts for the growing demonstrations now in the west? The Western’s ideology has failed its own citizens, right? – 1 Cor. 3:19

    But what about the north-eastern part of the globe? In Russia; the people have taken to mass demonstrations over voter fraud. Even before that these citizens were calling their politicians: “thieves and crooks!” They also describe their government as: “a crime syndicate” and “a mafia-like organization.” Then there’s China; revolts in two provinces have shaken that country. Tens of thousands of people are rising up because of corrupt officials. Local government has seized farmland without proper compensation, or none! Privet corporations are always the main benefactors. These helpless people have watched this happen for too many decades and can’t take this crooked abuse anymore! –Lu. 21:9

    It’s been noted in news reports that because of social media and twitter, a new sort of citizen is emerging in every corner around the globe. They are aware, connected and more able to make informed decisions. They’re increasingly concluding that the states affairs are incompatible with modern man. Since these old styles of ruling did not include, studies in the humanities, they have outlived their usefulness! Yet; what will take their place; perhaps experts in the field finance and management, or professors of sociology and history, or maybe well-studied technocrats? It would seem so. But don’t be too surprised; if not much beyond that, something much more gruesome grows from the top! Of course it’s not the protesters. –Da. 8:9-12
