World Politics -The Fury of the Oppressed Strikes
The Jasmine Revolution of North West Africa
he saying goes, ‘You can fool some people for sometime, but you cannot fool all the people for all the time.’ History has proved this truth over and over again but those blinded by power are at a loss to take a cue that could save themselves from treading the bog unawares.
Jasmine Revolution that began like a breeze in the tiny Tunisia took
no time to develop itself into a hurricane powerful enough to drive
its ruler Ben Ali away from home to become a refugee in Saudi Arabia.
It did have a sudden impact in the neighboring Egypt and President Hosni
Mubarak frightened by the might of the determined millions in the streets
of Cairo and Alexandria, abdicated and retired to languish in his winter
palace. How long?
The Armageddon Is In Motion
is only a matter of hours or days for Gadaffi of Libya to quit, flee
or embrace martyrdom as he often cries. The discontent growing
in large sections of people in Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait,
Oman et al is a great concern for the rulers there. Their vulgar display
of wealth coupled with arrogance and callous attitude towards the hapless
subjects have alienated themselves from the masses. The situation in
these countries is most favorable for the wind of change to visit.
Revolutions in The Past
is a natural process, and history gives us abundant examples. Frustrated
masses are more dangerous than explosives for frustration begets anger
and anger begets madness. When masses become mad they are blind, and
no army can stop them for soldiers too are a part of the masses, and
the rank and file do have their grievances against the elite top brass
who lead a life of extravaganza following the footsteps of their political
bosses. Hence the army is reluctant to use force against their own people.
Louises of France and the Czars of Russia went on reveling day and night
doing nothing to alleviate the miseries of the ruled till Rousseao and
Marx roused the masses and showed them their strength that when put
into action demolished the centuries old tyranny. That Louis XVI with
his queen and Czar Alexander with his family were executed is recent
history. Those cruel rulers of those dynasties could oppress and exploit
their countrymen for centuries as the folks remained illiterate and
news travelled slowly in those primitive days. On the other hand the
incredible advances in science and technology have become a boon to
the suffering people of today but a curse to the ruthless masters as
the nefarious deeds of these villains are exposed by the media instantly.
the People are Watching
Commoners are well aware of the five star lifestyle of the high and mighty and their kin, and their siphoning off the nation’s wealth into tax havens. People do keep their eyes and ears open. When a Gaddafi son gifted a million dollar to singer Maria Carry just for four songs at a bash on a Caribbean island he would never have dreamt of the thunderbolt of His wrath waiting on the wings ready to strike the four decade old Gaddafi Dynasty. The old Bedouin in his Ben Ghazi bungalow has now been restless and scared like a mole being smoked in its burrow. The throne of Qaboon Bin Said Al Said, the Sulthan of Oman has started rocking as the political typhoon has entered the region east of Egypt on its steady course seemingly with a vengeance to liberate the oppressed all over the world.

The Uneasy Calm
An uneasy calm prevails in communist citadels and even democratic countries. It is high time the rulers of Pakistan, China and India learned lessons from the upheavals around and stopped treating masses as asses to be rough shod. Do not expect them to take the double speak of the rulers lying down all the time. Whipping up religious frenzy may help keep the people of Pakistan away from the gross misdeeds of their leaders for some time, but it will surely be detrimental to the ruling class in the long run. In spite of all the technological wizadry being displayed by the Chinese leaders, freedom denied to the thirteen hundred million is likely to burst like the primordial Big Bang.

Napoleon Bonapart, Adolf Hitler, The Shah of Iran, Ferdinand Marcos
and their cronies did have a very sad end. That is great nature’s
law. There is no escape from it. Let our new generation upstarts remember
the adage: ‘When the gods want to destroy someone first they make
him mad.’ Beware, the wind of change is here to stay. The Armageddon
is set in motion. In the Gita Krishna says to Arjun the eternal
truth, ‘When values decline, when evils have their field day I enter
a body, and I come back in very age to destroy the evil and establish
righteousness.’ Revellers in high places! Listen to reason or perish.
