Power, money and ignorance
The triangle of authority, money and ignorance, is what some developing countries are suffering from in the modern era. You find the people of these countries, going through wars, and many revolutions in order to gain their freedom and be independent from colonial powers, then after matters settle down, those people who are suppressed hand over the power to revolution leaders.
Power, money and ignorance are all in the hand of the new authority leaders, so the backwardness of the countries increase because the new leadership have taken the same path of the previous regime and the authority methods, such as lavish spending. Meanwhile, the opportunists among thieves would reach decision making positions, while thefts and political crimes are put undercover by the authority’s media and its advisors, or through bribing some editors-inchief in papers, radios and televisions.
Funds disappear and leakage from the state treasury increases due to the increased number of thieves in leadership posts, so the leadership of those countries begin punishing small thieves and put their pictures on its corrupt media. Meanwhile, the leadership appointing big thieves, the ignorant and stupid in sensitive areas.
So, the new formula has become: Stupid authority, stolen money, ignorant leaderships, corrupted media, poor and struggling people. So, were people wanting to be free from colonization, eager to see with their own eyes the new formula and its results? People’s futuristic view now goes like the Kuwaiti proverb: “Keep your bad so you do not get worse than him.”
Each revolution in third world countries represents a humanitarian catastrophe and an international worry for more fragmentation, poverty and means to hinder economic, social and human development in those countries.
