Newton was sitting under an apple tree when an apple fell on his head, and he discovered the Universal Law of Gravitation. Another story: A small feather, crescent shape, was slowly descending to the ground. Amazingly, it was carrying a very small twig attached to the concave feather by some cobwebs. This could have inspired the invention of the first parachute.

Another inspiring example is watching the life of the wild. Animal kingdom, as we know, is comprised of two general types of animals; predators and non-predators. A predator, such as lions, operates within a limit, that is, the lion never walks shoulder to shoulder with, say, the buffalos. The lion must keep its reasonable distance from the cattle although it is programmed to feed on the weak animals in order to survive. This is not injustice!

Modern man is not supposed to operate against Nature; he must be an aid to Nature; he must be kind and considerate to Nature.

Dictators are just like pests or an oil spill. However, the ocean ultimately will be naturally cleaned up. Of course, the despots do not see beyond the end of their nose, but they have always swum against the current. They have always been washed up before long. Of course, spill can kill many seabirds and fish, but Nature is very patient and victorious.

At this time, 2014, the number of authoritarian governments is on the rise. In many countries an individual can wield power single handedly with impunity. These men normally have a ruthless army at their disposal. Under their dictatorial rule, there is no room for freedom of speech, press and religion. One wonders how stupid it must be to remain inattentive to people's complaints unless the dictators are equipped with some sort of secret data collection method unknown to public. If such technology exits, and the despot is aware of it own outrageous rampant injustices why doesn't he curb it? Can't we infer that such internationally hand picked stooges have a unique mission: to wipe an entire nation off the face of the earth?

In such autocratic countries, millions of ordinary citizens have no rights whatsoever. Paradoxically, such governments run periodically unashamed absurd general elections to fool the people of the world who cannot care less about such elections. Is it worth publicizing the dictator's worthless show of elections for, say, some US citizens who fail to recall the name of their federal president? This local consumption act is, certainly, not of interest to the politicians who exactly know what a sham the dictator's election is. They are sponsors of such stooges. We have one answer: stupid people do stupid things.

Let's give an example of the sham elections of a dictator. Childishly the despot officially declares who the people can vote for! He announces, say, four men as people's choices. Of these four, three are his right hand men who commit all possible crimes, but there is one man who has been marinated for long time, assuming people have forgotten his past atrocities.

People go to the poles and cast their votes. We all know that present data processing equipment can be program to count the votes as the programmer wishes, but for no known reason, it seems that the machine decides to count the votes cast. The result:
the least of three evils is elected. And this infuriated the despot! People's message: we outsmart you!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
