RAMADHAN READING for WORLD LEADERS

A BRILLIANT STATEMENT --
A COMMON SENSE OFTEN MADE NAUSEATINGLY COMPLEX ... -- ar
Thanks for sharing this Antares Maitreya
"We can almost recycle everything now. If we lived within our means, by being prudent, the 7 billion people in the world could have everything they needed. Global politics should be moving in that direction. But we think as people and count...ries, not as a species."

"As soon as politicians start climbing up the ladder, they suddenly become kings. I don't know how it works, but what I do know is that republics came to the world to make sure that no one is more than anyone else.The pomp of office is like something left over from a feudal past: you need a palace, red carpet, a lot of people behind you saying, 'Yes, sir.' I think all of that is awful."

"Businesses just want to increase their profits; it's up to the government to make sure they distribute enough of those profits so workers have the money to buy the goods they produce. It's no mystery - the less poverty, the more commerce. The most important investment we can make is in human resources."

"A president is a high-level official who is elected to carry out a function. He is not a king, not a god. He is not the witch doctor of a tribe who knows everything. He is a civil servant. I think the ideal way of living is to live like the vast majority of people whom we attempt to serve and represent."

~ President José "Pepe" Mujica of Uruguay
