I would like to take this opportunity to introduce your Majesty to the "Hélène de Beir Foundation". Hélène was my cousin's daughter and was killed in 2004 in Afghanistan, working for "Medecins sans frontières", a few weeks before her 30th birthday.Her father started a foundation (www.helenedebeirfoundation.org) that gives the opportunity to young women from pour countries to enjoy scholarship in western universities, in order to go back to their countries and help other people in the education sector. I have already sent a message a few months ago, but without any reaction.
We would like Her Majesty to take part to this project, besides Mr Jimmy Carter and other officials, as she is so concerned by the education and integration problems of women in the eastern countries, and a perfect link between East and West. We thank Her Majesty for Her attention, and would like to know if we can send her a book written by Hélène's father, in order to learn more about this project. With our deepest respect, Anne-Caroline Cambier (for Francis de beir, Hélène's father)

A friend of mine said, "The United Nations is a corrupt institution. Oh sure, there are many wonderful people working within and through the United Nations but as an entity it is corrupt. It is corrupt because the corrupt leaders of corrupt nations are members of its decision making bodies. Thus, the United Nations is corrupt,"

I replied, "Hmm." :)

She continued, "I would like to see an international entity that is not bound by the corruption of the leaders of corrupt nations but instead, works outside of the sphere of corruption. I would like see 'The United People' instead of the United Nations."

Most Honorable Queen,
well its very kind of you that you'll directly communicate to the visitors, I wrote a lot on this web about Islam and poor people but there's no response so today i am here for the last time, Well i offer a web portal which can beat face book and other famous portals and the income of this portal will be donated to poor people and students. I made a research and a documentary just like ARRIVALS but i want to launch or hand over it to someone who can take care of it and publish it the way i want i will also help you in the publicity and that's 100 % guaranteed.. well I also have a research about primary education but all of these things will be provided with strict conditions.

Who will be the first nation in the world to destroy all of its weapons of mass destruction? A very confident nation it seems; or perhaps, a nation who believes she has found her true leader.

Can you imagine the thrill and eternal gratitude of Lybian citizens, who are being mercilessly assaulted by the regime, if they looked in the sky the day after tomorrow and saw this:

The Lybian government(Gadhafi) is murdering Lybian civilians by the thousands by bombing cities. The United States has created such a debacle in international diplomacy that she is essentially impotent to take action even with the support of the UN to secure a no fly zone in Lybia. It occurred to me, what a huge statement it would be to the world if Jordan contacted Peter Mackay, the Defense Minster of Canada, and joined forces to secure a "no fly zone," with UN approval, to protect the innocent citizens of Lybia. I'm just saying. :)

Rapid democratization creates serious risk of extremist tyranny of the majority particularly if not coupled with significant human rights protections. John Stuart Mill addressed this concept well in "On Liberty" where he expressed a need for limits on the public majority to protect the rights of the minority.

The reality is that we do not have to scrutinize the writings of Mill to find a true empirical demonstration of a democratic revolution "run amuck." The most significant example of the failed implementation of democracy is the Bolshevik Revolution, which ultimately led to the murder of 60 million men, women and children during the Soviet experiment from 1917 to 1989. A much more recent example is the 1978 revolution in Iran. Perhaps the best known failure of democracy is the reign of terror under the popularly elected Adolph Hitler in Germany which ended in WWII.

Democracy in itself is not the "cure all" as naive westerners often believe. Democracy, when successfully implemented is merely one mean to an end. That end is the preservation of human rights and fairness for all. But democratization is not the end in itself nor is it the only end to a resolution. Certainly, everyone desires the right to govern himself. It is a natural right that all seek to achieve. But that does not mean a nation should rush to democracy at the expense of a well developed and planned transition into the form of democracy that is appropriate for a given population. And that form is not "one size that fits all."
