Neil Mick, your thoughts are interesting and so are your analysis of the myriad political systems prevailing in US, Israel and Palestine.

Having basically resigned to the fact that there are no perfect political doctrine, what would be the best way to run a government then. Would it depend on the racial mix, present level of development, economic strength, cultural and educational standards?

Having read terry dobson's aikido in daily life several times, I have as yet been able to fully utilise his advise in totality. In fact, I'm almost disillusioned after reading that prime personalities of aikido are no more a figure of dignity, humbleness and rightiousness then the average joe. Without naming names, has anyone here seen a sensei who they truly revere? Someone who not only has the skills of a true aikidoka but one with the right spirit as well? I wonder if its all a dream...

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
