Laws are the framework of a modern society. A consensus of the governed defining the rules that apply to all, the governed and the governing… News that the new constitution boycotted by a large portion of Egyptians has been adopted is deadly. This could lead to rebellion, terrorism or horrible repression in a country vital to the Arab and African world.
“The head of the Egypt Constitutional Committee described the turnout as "unprecedented" — 20 million people, representing 38.6% of those eligible to vote.”
No good can come of a situation where a military government has not the consent of the governed. Will Egypt wake up and back away from the precipice or will Egypt fall into a pit of violence and despair? Only Egyptians can decide and they don’t seem to be in a mood to talk about it.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
