Random Thoughts of an Arranged Mind

Traditionally we praise as quintessentially American the family business and the “Mom and Pop” shop. On the other hand, we denigrate nepotism and “crony capitalism.” Where do we draw the line between these two models that seem to have much in common?

Outgoing President of Egypt = Hosni Mubarak
Israeli Defense Minister = Ehud Barak
President of the USA = Barack Obama

Compulsion breeds resentment.
Resentment breeds resistance.
Resistance breeds (the hope of) freedom.
