Adriana,

I can't speak for others but I personally am completely harmless. When I was young I used to think about politics and what kind of government was best. A long time ago it finally dawned on me that there exists only one type of government that has ever existed or will ever exist.

People have political power because they have friends who support them who have political power; it is essentially a feudal thing. It makes no difference whether you are talking about a government, a religion, a business, a club or a family, all organizations function by exactly the same rules. Any time the published rules do not reflect that structure, then the real power is behind the scenes.

I just consider myself lucky to exist at a time and place to have such a good time. -- It's pure luck and nothing else. If there were any intelligence behind it the social problems of the world would have been solved 5,000 years ago. Now that's just an opinion - worth exactly what you paid for it.

Have fun -- Dick
