Oslo Freedom Forum - Dawn of a New Arab World

Oslo Freedom Forum - Dawn of a New Arab World | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
DAWN OF A NEW ARAB WORLD featured speakers from Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Tunisia and will look at the changing landscape of the Arab world. In the post-Colonial era, the Arab world has been dominated by military dictatorships, which have not been accountable to their people; however, we are witnessing history—people are in the midst of changing their governments in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya and protests are forcing change in Syria, Bahrain, and other countries.

Revolution In The West? - http://www.petercliffordonline.com/revolution-in-the-west/ | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
In my previous post Does The Western World Have a Conscience? I touched on the possibility that Western countries themselves may not be immune to increasing discontent and protest by their citizens.

In the UK recent events suggest to me that this is even more likely than I originally thought. Firstly, it is clear that we in the UK (and much the same applies it seems to me in the US and most of Europe) have just been subjected to the biggest government confidence trick in the last 300 years since the South Sea Bubble of 1720.

Since 2008 the vast majority of the Western population dream about saying "no" to the banks, but no one has dared to do so. No one except the Icelanders, who have carried out a peaceful REVOLUTION that has managed not only to overthrow a government and draft a new constitution, but also seeks to jail those responsible for the country's economic debacle.
