I do not feel much like giving a *chuckle* about it.
It is all so messed up, and seems unendingly sad.
The recent Taliban retaking power over Afghanistain
I recently finished reading two books on the general subject:
Generation Revolution by Rachel Aspden
"Generation Revolution unravels the complex forces shaping the lives of
four young Egyptians on the eve and in the aftermath of the Arab Spring,
and what their stories mean for the future of the Middle East."
Shifting Sands: The Unraveling of the Old Order in the Middle East
Paperback – March 15, 2016
by Raja (ed.) Shehada (Author), Penny (ed.) Johnson (Editor)
"A fresh look at the Middle East today, tomorrow, and in the past:
fifteen writers, with an introduction by Raja Shehadeh, author of the
Orwell Prize-winning Palestinian Walks, and Penny Johnson. At a time
when the Middle East dominates media headlines more than ever—and for
reasons that become ever more heartbreaking—Shifting Sands brings
together fifteen impassioned and informed voices to talk about a region
with unlimited potential, and yet which can feel, as one writer puts it,
“as though the world around me is on fire?”
Very sad. Youth, definitely including females, just do not have any
easy way for progress.
In Egypt the mass united demonstrations finally forced out a
corrupt dictatorship (Mubarak), got a chance to democraticlly elect
a leader, and they big time went for Islamic fundamentalist,
the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
Mohamed Morsi, was sworn in as Egypt's first democratically elected
President. Moves toward the Islamic laws created political and
economic crisis. The population supported the military in throwing
Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood out. So, they have another
military dictator. But,,,, always the hope he will rule the
country for the benifit of all citizens.
But the whole culture is just messed up with no good future of
economic growth and freedom for all.
