Subject: RE: BS: The Arab Revolution
Excellent posts. But sad indeed that a democratic and free society for all is still so far off, even in the USA. Imagine how long it will be to come in the East if it is still so far away in the USA.

And, no, I don't wanna argue or cajole about the fact that it could be possible now in the USA if "everyone became involved and voted or protested or whatever"... it's about rich and poor.. the rich have the money and therefore they have the poor. Star Trek is a looooong way in the future, if ever.
