The Arab Rising
The developments in this winter of discontent in the Arab world leaves Western observers wondering if this is either an Arab renaissance or reformation.
Well it cannot be called a reformation because the protesters are targeting autocrats seeming to hopscotch over religious leaders reaching instead for their own independent place in the sun.
As for a renaissance it is too early to tell but one thing is for certain if this rising sticks to its current trajectory you will have the birth of democracies that will lead to an Arab renaissance for certain.
This is quite important because right now the world is not operating at peak performance lacking potential Arab contributions to the planet in science, math and art optimized by a renaissance.
With these contributions the world will find itself a step closer to global peace and that should be everyone's objective.
