Some would say the simplest plan is generally the best plan, which is certainly true about the Worldwide United Foundation Plan to end global poverty and inequality and even as there may be many who stand in opposition of such a plan- the opposition has continually and profoundly failed over the last 5+ years to prove it cannot work - the foundation will be here as long as it takes to show it can work if given the chance.
On the other hand, imperfect human leadership and governance continually prove their lasting inability to so much as slow the tide of increasing global misery of every type, as evidenced by daily headlines, and in spite of copious plans, policies, political and charitable programs attempted.
In recent days, mounting protests calling for the end of Tunisia’s 20 year rule of Arab leader Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali resulted in his fleeing the city of Tunis and leaving would be interim government leaders scrambling as well as a sending a loud message to other autocratic leaderships in the region of the potency of popular dissatisfaction with oppression.
Haiti remains an agonizing world reminder of a terrible natural disaster made colossally worse by international lack of credibility and ability to feed, house or stem disease of even a half portion of the small Caribbean island. Many areas of New Orleans have been forsaken and for other remaining residents recovery frustratingly slow.
Arizona has been the site of two other recent examples of political imperfection. First, the Department of Homeland Security finally figured out and canceled its plan to build a technology based ‘virtual fence, across the southwest border citing ‘cost and ineffectiveness’ but not until $1billion had already been spent. Secondly, in the days following Gabrielle Giffords shooting, both media and politicians have speculated as to the reason for the violence. Governments rarely look at their lack of capacity to improve human life as reason why dissatisfied citizens would resort to violence.
Living a perfected plan, Tunisians wouldn’t need to protest leaders for their human rights; all their basic needs would be satisfactorily provided. The Haitian people would have been provided immediate clean food, water, temporary shelters and sanitation while the global community & city together cleaned up, repaired and built permanent facilities without citing “money” among the primary excuses for not getting people help even after one year. The horrendous health hazards of The Big Easy could have actually been eased if not entirely eliminated. Violence like that in Tucson wouldn’t have happened because whether it occurred for physiological or psychological reasons both would be addressed. Last but not least, no money would have been spent on a useless fence because no borders would exist to hinder people’s free will to travel anywhere, anytime for as long as they will!
