may be i lived in the utopian world that one day we will live in a society where everyone will be equal !
democratic governments help to fantasize this, but we know it is not true.
some body rules today and someone else will rule tomorrow.
he will have his set of court jesters in his chamber to help him decide or agree with him.
opinions will be dished and suggestions will be taken but the man on the throne will rule!
most have 5 fingers and some have six. if all were equal, our hands would not be as useful as it is now. so nature has decided it for us that there will be varying degrees of equality. sometimes the index finger is more dominant than the other. some individuals in society will have more importance than the others. some countries will dominate more than the others.some countries will greedily clammer away resources leaving bits and pieces at the foot of the table to others. some countries will rule for some time and the rattle will be passed on to others just like in a relay race.
There can never be two heads , there will always be only one.
Nature has said it.
some countries may not rule all the time but they will be strong. we cannot do away without them, just like the thumb. some countries have symbiotic relationship with the others. some individuals will pretend to be weaker, but they are strong during a crisis. sometimes the little finger will rule - just like smaller countries ( in size) will overpower the others. When many countries will gain prominence at the same time, the earth will make a noise, a violent noise.
my utopia fades away..
we will never be a just society.
