Post Titled: A post I don't want to write, but feel obligated to blow off some steam for the good of all concerned.

Ok, basically, it occurred to me that the population of the Western world can be broken down into the following categories:
1.elites
2a.wanna-be elites
2.b working populace eeking out a living
3.the broke-ass class
4. (per Jesi) "broke-ass elites" heh.

so if you categorize yourself into one of these, then think: WHO is really working in my interest? Unless you are an elite then is sure as hell isn't the elites... oder?

Europe is in danger of rendering itself impotent in the 21st Century due to its obsessions with:
1.suffocationg structure
2.tired ritual
3.comfort/stability/quality of life. (ok, perhaps these things are important, but still)...

and it will kick and scream, but to no avail. no joke.

just a few thoughts I had on my walk to work...

still, I do believe that Europe's upcoming problems PALE in comparison with the United States'

In real German News from the NY Times:

"A German judge has stirred a storm of protest here by citing the Koran in turning down a German Muslim woman’s request for a fast-track divorce on the ground that her husband beat her.
In a remarkable ruling that underlines the tension between Muslim customs and European laws, the judge, Christa Datz-Winter, said that the couple came from a Moroccan cultural milieu, in which she said it was common for husbands to beat their wives. The Koran, she wrote, sanctions such physical abuse."

i want to hear more about this!
i have major issues with the social services in the usa, but i have nothing to compare it to. my experience in alameda county california:

they make it impossible to find the information and once you access it, sit in line for 5 hours, and fill out a million forms they talk to you like you should be ashamed of yourself for being there. After 10 hours of work and condescension you´re granted benefits, fill out more paper work, then the folks "lose" the forms, discontinue your benefits and tell you that you need to start all over again. (ie sit in the fucking room four 4 hours to get a number, make an appointment for an orientation, blah blah blah)

would "broke ass elites" be the same as "wanna be elites?"
