Egypt Takes Center Stage Big Time.

It’s been interesting watching the masks of world leaders slipping during the protests in Egypt.  Usually it’s the “governing bodies”–and the BIG MONEY folks– who push which way the world will flow, how and where. But Egypt’s common people seem to have grabbed the tiger by the tail in order to swing the government beast their way. In America it’s been disturbing to observe how these protests have been reported by the mainstream news media and all the talking heads. I wonder how many of these folks realize the possible implications IF IF IF the demands of the Egyptian protesters are met–or not. Here is change that the US spook teams have not set into motion nor seem to have any control over.  Every time I see Obama, his spokesman, and Hilary Clinton I get a distinct sense of well controlled panic behind their constantly shifting eyes. Oh the corporate run media in America had better keep the public hypnotized by mental junk food or there could be trouble–the sort of trouble that comes from ideas stimulated by the ideas put into action by other people.  While the yet to be manifested IDEALS of America have inspired people everywhere around the world at different points in time, the same ideals don’t seem to have much impact inside America these days.  Is this because the American people suffer from apathy, depression, legal and illegal drug maintainance programs, educational pedagogy that destroys critical thinking skills –and a seriously hollow cultural value framework that encourages them to deny even the reality of climate change and that we in the USA are the biggest polluters in the world? Is anyone else watching the public masks of the political puppets of the military industrial complex cracking under the stress of dealing with the potential for “things” to slip beyond their control? Frankly, when the cracks split apart the illusionary public masks and  result in the blatant display of the true nature of the movers and shakers who will care in America? Who will notice while the masses are wondering if the president dyes his hair? Between Wikkileaks and the huge world-class drama playing out center stage in Egypt there is a great unveiling of the very very dark workings of the political-economic world. It’s all there to be seen by anyone willing to see it–even if the masks have not been broken apart entirely.  To see it and accept it without question is to condone it–and perhaps to condemn ourselves to the fate of being devoured by it.  I’m watching the Egyptian stage intently. However this drama unfolds and whatever “conclusion” it arrives at, there will be consequences for all of us as it sets into motion the next act in the power play for the way the world will “be.”  I have no doubt that every politician and businessperson in the world is paying very close attention to Egypt–much closer attention than any American Idol fans pay to their wanna be super stars. What a great game of misdirection and distraction the corporate media displays day in and day out in America–and around the world.  What could possibly get Americans to wake up? Empty grocery store shelves? Gasoline at ten dollars a gallon? Having to wear gas masks when outside climate controlled buildings?  Being lied to, manipulated, censored, and spied upon has not had much effect on the American masses.  What sort of alarm clock is required? Or does it matter any more at this point?  Well, the doctors and lawyers  have taken to the streets in Egypt.  But, so far the Suez Canal is still operating. IF the people ever get their hands on that then Suleiman’s nasty “bats” will probably be freed.  Oh the drama of it all. Eat your heart out Shakespeare, because the Egyptians are acting out one hell of a grand historical morality play on the world stage for a captive global audience.
