So Called Democracy

Whenever Europe or the United States says that an African nation is a peaceful democracy, what is really being said is the political leader does what he/ she is told, raw materials are being stolen with no fanfare (under the label of trade), whites live well and the black population - impoverished as it is - puts up no fight.

Discipline

"The word discipline means to learn. A disciple is one who learns, not who conforms, not who obeys; he is one who is constantly learning.  And when learning ceases and becomes merely accumulation of knowledge then disorder begins. When we stop learning in our relationship, whether we are studying, playing or whatever we are doing, and merely act from the knowledge that we have accumulated, then disorder comes." Krishnamurti
