Muslim Brotherhood Ready to Take Over
#21
Lets tie two related topics together, shall we? I'm talking about food prices worldwide, and Egypt: U.S. drought drives up food prices worldwide. I have not gone and read Spengler lately, but I really need to visit him today, which I shall.

This is what Bastiat was talking about when he talked about 'The Unseen' causes for things occurring. And mention the topic of world food prices with the stability of Egypt, and over 90% of everyone will scratch their heads and give that "Lost in Las Vegas" look. My guess is that things are going to soon reach a critical point where even more Egyptians are going to die violently.

And only 10% of Egyptians are Coptics. Guess who is going to feel the brunt of this?

And when you add stuff such as this, things tend to become even more volatile.

So who will be the big loser here in all this? SA doesn't like the Brotherhood, and views them as their main competition. The military doesn't like it, because of what they did to Mubarak. The Coptics don't like them because they want to do away with them. And the public is growing disenchanted, because the economy is in the Crapper, and nothing is being done to ease the life of the average citizen, who is hungry, and not filled.

When we imagine the "end of the world" or "the end of the civilisation" we imagine a world empty of poeple, ghost towns and one maybe two cars still going on rarefied fuel.

In Egypt it's the opposite. They live the end of their ciilisation (or does the end of our civilisation starts there?) in overcrowded cities, with huge trafick jams as if cars multiplied een faster than humans.

It's a collapse in reverse. A destructive demographic boom. The mankind disapering within the man mass.

Cairo: 18 million poeple and only 3 subway lines which may not be maintained soon.
Garbage piling up, tap water drying up, power shuting down, gas station running out, hospitals without medicine... No grass, no tree, crushing heat, junk food, it's Soylent Green already for them.

IMO Egyptians won't even have time to experience the regression caused by the Sharia. They are already fully in it.
The Islamists can't stop it. But even better: the islamists even didn't have time to enforce the Sharia because everything is degradating too quickely to organise anything.

Egypt is like all other Arab countries. They are all in systems that are "Stuck on Stupid". They are inefficient, corrupt, totalitarian, and totally alien to concepts like Individual Liberty. The only reason why some are fairly well off is because of oil revenues. If it wasn't for oil, SA would be a third world cesspool.

And instead of being an inefficient country with a small population, Egypt has been breeding like lice, and supported by subsidies, and foreign aid. In other words, they have been living in non-reality. And that threshold has been crossed already. Had they become efficient, like those evil Jooos, they would have a well oiled system, with huge farms, large green belts, etc. But they have pissed their potential away, and now they don't even have that alternative.

The only alternative is for them to latch on to a Huge Sugar Daddy, and keep riding the gravy train, where nothing really improves. Or they can go through a disruption, trouble, and dying off. Their population numbers are going to have to be cut by at least one third, or they will starve to death, and be fighting for the remaining little resources available. Perhaps by then they will finally look at their neighbor, in Israel, and learn from them instead of be consumed with envy and anger.

Well, IMO the suggar daddy is done giving sweets away.

Egypt will continue its long descent to Hell, with ever increasing population and no hope in sight.

What they need is a massive epidemic or famine that kill half of the population but who would wish that?

We had a nice discussion about the Free Market being punished quickely while the governement is not.
I'll add that population stupidity is not being punished either.

In modern times no famine or epidemic has ever reduced the size of the population. Before 1900, such event would easily wipe off 1/3 of the population. Not today anymore, not een in Somalia.
Food still reach the poors and help them survie.
That's instinctive human charity to do so, and it's a good thing moraly, but the effect of it is that overpopulation is maintained at its dangerous levels.
Same with epidemias: the world panics when there are 100 dead and it's swiftly stopped by all means.
Here again, no punishment.
(South Africa is the only country I know of which has a population volume hit by a desease [AIDS])

What will happen in the future of humanity I don't know.

The best thing we can do is to encourage them to practice 'Free Enterprise'. As long as they don't over-regulate themselves, they will generate more than enough wealth to afford a heavier population. Singapore, and Hong Kong, are the two best examples of this. Unfortunately the US is no longer at the top of the scale.

I think YOU just did ... if it wasn't such an arid place I'd say that that sounded like very 'green' idea. S24

I'll agree with you on the Sugar Daddy thing ... all potential suitors are up to their necks in sh*t right at the moment.

JL, Singapore, and Hong Kong which are single-town states cannot serves as an example for Egypt which streches from the Mediterranean sea to the center of Africa.
Egypt cannot hae the same concentration as HK or Singapore. But they seem to be on track for the same concentration of population on the Nile's broder.

And one fact is: There is no natural disaster able to fix the population balance anymore as in the past.

Huge floods in Pakistan last year did, what, 300 dead... on 300 million.

Sudan can experience famine after famine and still see it's population growing by the fastest ratio in the world.

The unstoppable Gungujura fever (a desease transmitted by a mosquito) killed a few hundred poeple. Do you think it affects the population of Africa?

Fred, you are nit-picking now. HK and Singapore actually have a harder task in using free enterprise, because they are very restricted in size. Egypt is more spread out.

But so what? It is the people who really make the difference. Egypt is a country controlled by Fundamentalist Islam, which should tell you almost everything you need to know so far.
