Will this produce Democracy as we know it, given the Egyptian militaries huge role in Egyptian society?
A peoples revolution occurring in the heart of the Middle East demonstrates the organisational aspects of the revolution happening throughout the world via social media. This is a challenge to the usual oligarchic hierarchical mechanisms throughout society effecting self identity.
As in the USA, these interest use their vast advantage of access to idea spread, enabling a platform for the manipulation of the individuals self construct to be immersed in “dominator” paradigms. This strategy is opportunistic and survival orriented, making fear a prime mover in our actions, rendering Democracy to a kind of back seat.
This new communal perspective spreading throughout humankind is both letting us each know, in some respects, what the others are doing. It also increases the viral capacities of mis and disinformation, as evidenced poignantly by the manipulations of the US right wing, known to be most misdirected and erroneous as to the factual aspects to their belief system.
Democracy is not a guarantee that anyones aspirations nor their stresses will be served. This “error” in perspective can open a Pandora’s Box of opinions as to what is real and what is not, again evidenced by the views of many US conservatives regarding US president Obama and his alleged intentions and beliefs, these fashioned into Appearance Realities by the corporate media’s skewed slant in many events and realities of the world.
For Egypt, this is just a beginning of an ongoing effort of the individual to achieve more say in the events of their lives, and a reinvention of those interest who seek to control perception and place.
This commentary is based on my first flush of feeling about this matter.
With the hate speech pandemic infecting many conservative/right wing media outlets, this kind of evil, thought by the perpetrators as good, may be just the beginning.
Terror knows it works to cripple free thought and thus Democracy. Those proposing it against fellow Americans are anti-American and antiChristian no matter the public provocations being offered as rationalizations. This is about ignorance versus understanding at the core level. As many of us are aware, in the human mind, ignorance, guided by emotional manipulation, can appear to be actual truth.
The terror making individuals are likely both mentally and spiritually highly disturbed. The question is; Why are so many conservatives advocating openly hostile contempt towards, not only liberals, but the Democratic party as well?
It seemed to be turning into 2009; tornadoes in the South and East, the Plains–boring!
May 10 may be a big day for the tornado seekers of Vortex 2, with an outbreak possible right up their alley.
Then comes the choice dilemma; chose a storm to chase that the whole armada can catch in time. That will be the question.
They picked just one whole of last year, not that the storms that do not produce tornadoes are not important–they are a major part of the study to determine why one storm is capable of a twister and another not quite. However. I do not believe the chase team wakes up thinking; I wish we would finally get a non tornado producing storm, all these tornadoes are getting dull.
The sweat on the heads of the decider, if lucky, will add to the humidity just enough to tip the scales, but not too much to interfere with the RFD.
The other luck to wish for would be that no people or structures are destroyed no matter Vortex 2 or not.
–Notice in this video how obscured this tornado could have been on the ground. Trees and buildings can block the view until other indications are right in top of you. So. Listen to those warnings. In Beaumont Texas the day before, a tornado developed from what seemed to be local interactions of prior storm boundaries. So. Sometimes your eyes must be believed even when no warnings of severe weather are present or predicted.
