Too much labor for lazy minds.
I'll have to disagree with you on one major point, I'm not sure whether you're familiar with Sudan's history or you just assumed I'm talking about it because it says I'm from there on my profile, either ways, people coming together despite of their differences to stand up united and call for change forcing those in charge to step down is definitely considered a revolution, it's a major twist in the mind set of those oppressed to acknowledge firstly that they don't approve of their current situation and secondly their great power and capability to bring the change they want to reality. Which has happened successfully twice here already, in the 60's and in the 80's long before Facebook and proper media coverage, and the third time is on its way.
Other than that, this post is pretty much saying exactly what you stated; revolutions are an ongoing process of pulling through until the development aspired for is achieved. The fact that change is needed here every 20 years as it seems means there's something missing in those uprisings, they did not ensure democracy on the long run, hence we're not doing it right.
That's why books, movies, poetry and songs are this great and popular; they give us a glimpse of that.
How do you classify a certain religion as "bad" to begin with? While I understand some people calling religion in general "the root of all evils", I fail to comperehnd your point. Please elaborate.
IT'S TOO SOON TO ASK!
It brought up alot of suggestions making it good though. However, I believe that negative score would change if people got the chance to get used to the layout first.
Not only places; life experiences as well. Even right where I am, I will never be able to fully go through/comprehend what life is like to someone with different family conditions for example or a different education. I feel like my lifetime is too short for all the variety of human experiences out there. That's why I like books.
I think the main victims are the people of the county in question, as an oppressive leader is a dictator that is likely to stay in office until he's either elected out (if elections weren't corrupt; which they probably will be) or removed by a revolution of the people. All these sanctions are only destroying economies making it harder for them to rebuild their country. For instance; they get to import wheat but not the machinery that would help them grow it themselves, turning the country into a dependent poor country on top of all their problems of oppression and lost freedoms, while those who are supposedly getting punished are pushing the people further under poverty line because they will keep on fulfilling their greedy needs regardless of the income now being decreased.
Yeah, you should. curious
Don't I get bonus for effort?
I always thought there should be a dictionary/website for that. Where you insert simple sentences and you get them rephrased in sophisticated words.
