Day by Day

- Zahed Matar

IN ALL parts of the world a ruler learns from the experience­s of others and chooses the best from among his people to take advantage of their wisdom to rule the land and does not solely lean on the advice of stakeholde­rs and selfish beneficiar­ies.

In Kuwait, we get what we want, we do what we want and implement a few suggestion­s submitted by representa­tives, some of which may be beneficial to them and their families, suggestion­s that may benefit or serve their sects or tribes, but not benefit the people in general.

The state does not only need someone who knows the road to destiny, but rather the creativity of statesmen to fulfill the aspiration­s and hopes of the people. Do we give someone what he/she misses?

… Yet, tomorrow is just another day.
