Speaking as a writer, and an aspiring future political theorist and philosopher (for fictional worlds I make up when I design fantasy world militaries and governments in my head), PROBABLY one of the best, most justified things the formerly Mubarak-controlled “former regime” can do to help the Middle East and put the former Egyptian regime of Mubarak in his true place (as a worm and villain in History) would be to admit what Mubarak did to corrupt them and freely give out information about how Mubarak corrupted his own Egyptian government into a regime in the first place. Or just continued it. Honesty is the best policy, even in the Arab world. Admit what the “Powers That Be” made them lie about and commit violence against the common people for. The best thing they can do is admit what they did, without intentionally offending the people in Egypt who hear their now-Democracy-influenced message. And yes, I, Obama, and the internet WILL be listening. So you’d better approach your position carefully, Military of Egypt. The main advice I’d offer to Egypt, would be keep a REAL CLOSE EYE on Iran, the same way South Korea is keeping a real close eye on North Korea. They are the villains of world history at the moment after all. I’m not going to discuss Korea right now. The Egypt Iran tension is too big of a deal, and too much at the forefront of the world to talk about anything else. I just needed a chance to speak, a real excuse to speak my mind politically. And I did. On Twitter this morning and last night.
Thank you Obama, you’re finally actually achieving and getting results more than talking. Just messing with you.
Social Reform Movements
Symbols of Peace and Reform
The Obama Presidential Inauguration
Cairo Square (comparable to the protests at Tiananmen Square and the Berlin Wall Fall)
What’s left of the Egyptian Military and Government is going to have the re-write the book of Arab Politics all over again. Will that take a lot of strategy and planning and more than a year (unfortunately more than a year) to successfully achieve? Yes. Should there be a “Egyptian Constitution” written based on the Western Examples, I strongly believe so. That is how Laws and Governments get established. By Congresses and Written Government Documents and Discussion of how they should be written; believe it or not, these types of considerations seem obvious to me. If Egypt Truly wants to Stay Free, they can’t repeat recent history. They can’t repeat themselves. Democracy anywhere is built on a foundation, on organized governments that endorse freedom and pro-autonomy governance. This is an enormous opportunity for Egypt to set an example as a new paradigm Role Model for the Entire Eastern World, to show there’s more to Asia than “evil regimes, tyranny, corruption, terrorism, and socialism”. Because there’s a lot more to it than that. And if you’re an Egyptian today, you already know that. Obama and the United States Government knows all about this sort of thing. Diplomatic and international aid from around the democratic world should counsel and consult with Egypt in this Time of Change for the Arab World. Change is in the Air. Revolution really is happening in the Middle East now. I don’t want to get too excited, but it’s easy to get excited about a successful day like Friday, February 11, 2011. A Day of Democracy and Change overseas. Egypt has ended up with one of the greatest opportunities for change in the history of the world. It actually DIDN’T happen in America this time. The attention is finally on somewhere else.
And this is proof that, by sparing protestors in Egypt and helping to oust Mubarak, the Web has proven its usefulness in not only bringing peace to the world, but saving the lives of innocent people as well. The web saves lives too. Some of my influence saves lives. Not only that, it brings epic peace and justice to society. Real Justice.
In a way, Bush, much as people hate him, was the warrior
Barack Obama has been the peacemaker and strategist.
I’ve always been out to help the world though, for a long time now. I used to be against everyone. Now, I just want to help. I’m happy to help you or anyone out however I can.
And that’s about as much political commentary as you’ll get out of me for the moment.
Wow, I feel so very, very, incredibly topical. I’m amazing! I brought peace to the world! Go me!
“Savior”?? I don’t know if I’d go that far. I have some powerful political might now. I have some political strength in the media and in society and culture around the world, but that’s about as far as I’ll go in admitting something like that. I don’t want to become arrogant and believe my own hype. I’ll just keep working for political order and peace, from a non-political diplomatic and technocratic position.
That’s all the inspiration I’ll ever need, right now.
What’s happened in the last 18 days or so in Egypt, the reform that’s happened there is the same kind of new-paradigm political reform I want to take a literary photograph of for reference in the post-Apocalyptic. Egypt is now a Rebuilding Society. New-Earth (the world I created) is a Rebuilding Society. Egypt is playing a big part in the shaping of my “fictional” story. It’s more of an allegory now than ever before. And because of how much people have been impressed by my input through the internet, even I get to have input and say into how Egypt is Rebuilt, Politically, Religiously, Socially, Culturally, Geographically, Logistically, Militarily, and Economically. No Small Task I’m a contributor like every other major Internet Pundit. Many of the Egyptian Protestors who survived the “Martyrs” who died in the struggle, one of the main Reformers blatantly thanked Facebook and Twitter (which I have a popular account on) on CNN. That gives me more power than I had. Real power. Political and Social Reformer Power, like the Civil Rights Movement or something. Suddenly my life has a real purpose and meaning all of the sudden. Well, actually, it had meaning before, but now it has meaning that’s that much more powerful.
New-Earth and Egypt have a lot in common, in an allegorical way like Nosferatu and any tyrant overseas do.
Starting today, The Continuing Egypt Saga has given me a lot of raw source material to work with for the development of my Post-Apocalyptic fictional universe, my own mythos: “New-Earth: The Rebuilt World”. It’s like winning the allegory lottery.
