From Blogger – Monday 21st February 2011
The Internet is making ordinary people aware of extreme wealth that exists.
This knowledge is creating questions that lead to more eventually leading
to protest occurring including direct action.
No longer can those that either have this mentioned vast wealth or those
whom are friendly with them can escape these concerns due to them
being connected with the instant digital connected age; as the public
view this age as being about FREEDOM & Instant Super Fast.
Egypt is the perfect example of this in that mass protest was created
as a feeling rather than the possibly ‘old’ needed leadership –
‘Tip of the Pyramid’ conducting the band.
Mohamed ElBaradei attempted to become this figurehead for the
Anti-Mubarak movement but just didn’t get it possibly due to being
68yrs old; people didn’t want a leader but an organic movement.
The Mob it seems doesn’t run on instinct but Twitter;
as seen by the reaction below.
In the days before the Internet; Egypt might have been a little segment
on the news now due to it a Internationalist perspective is emerging.
People demand emotion, then instant ‘I want it NOW’ attitude &
accessibility through Air-Travel is possible.
A growing number of people in the developed word can via saving income
travel to at least one exotic or distance location within their life-time that
was unavailable to their ancestors.
In the early 20th Century; vacation to Egypt was only for the people with
wealth; now in the early 21st Century my Barber lists
Sharm el-Sheikh along with Hong Kong as his favourite places he’s visited.
People that wouldn’t normally be connected… are & that’s the point.
David Letterman even mocked Hosni Mubarak’s speech.
The lack of understanding of this new Digital Age can be seen in the
manner that Saif al-Islam (Colonel Gaddafi’s son) addresses what he
believes is directly to the Libyan population when in-fact it went Global
without the assistance of the state broadcaster.
The Body Language is casual along with words provided.
It seems that even for a young man Saif al-Islam seems to forget that
his people will make direct comparisons with the presentation manner of
President Obama. This compare & contrast can occur due to the Digital age
with people using proxy servers to bi-pass State Controls on the Internet.
Some experts reaction to Saif al-Islam’s speech is rather than calm
the situation in Libya; it’s made it worse as he’s been shown to be an
embarrassment whom has power.
Thus making their nation appear across the Globe as a foolish joke.
Be warned that the below speech is a disgrace for an individual whom
sees himself as a future leader of a nation.
At least Mubarak stood up & looked like a Leader rather than giving the
impression of an arrogant Sir Alan Sugar licker attempting to survive getting
fired in the ‘Board Room’ like Saif’s does.
Yet, the theme of this Blog isn’t just around goings on the Arab World but
also connects with the City that am currently living in Liverpool, UK.
Activists are using Technology as a means of cleverly promoting their
message using humour that’s one thing which can’t be replicated.
I like the ‘Sheep’ section of the video as that currently is the question of
what’s going on in the UK. Some people just care about themselves
attempting to ignore the current economic & social situation.
I personally feel that it’s not yet my time to activity ‘get off the bench’ &
become a player.
As I’ve said in previously am going through an emotional awakening as
Science as been my obsession since 6yrs old; its wonders blocked me
from a lot of things. So; am getting use to looking at the world in a new light
even my interaction with Liverpool is changing.
I saw the city as a place of study & work now due to my current employment
situation am being to see it as my home.
Am stuck with it; so the relationship has changed.
Am from the South of the UK & at times I feel that am in another nation not
just a couple of hundred miles north.
Yet, the thing that grabs me is the laugh the jokes the knowledge of life
being cruel yet also ironic. This is summed up in the below Video.
I’ve got a feeling about Liverpool as a City & a people… something may rise
that might impact the entire nation maybe even the world.
It’s intense & unpredictable but always funny.
An enjoyable mystery to me; at the moment.
