Be Inspired by Wadah Khanfar

As a democratic revolution led by tech-empowered young people sweeps the Arab world, Wadah Khanfar, the head of Al Jazeera, shares a profoundly optimistic view of what's happening in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and beyond -- at this powerful moment when people realized they could step out of their houses and ask for change. (TED)
"The youth who have organised themselves are guarding the transformation, and they are trying to put it on a track in order to satisfy the VALUES of democracy, but at the same time also to make it reasonable and to make it rational, not to be or to go out of order. In my opinion these people are much more wiser than not only the political elite, even the intellectual elite, even opposition leaders, including political parties." - W. Khanfar

"...at this moment of time, the youth in the Arab World are much more wiser and capable of creating the change than the old, including the political and cultural and idealogical old, you know, regims."
Now it's up to the Western World to face its own mirror and ask for real change based on inner and universal values (same as in the Arab world), truth and friendship. So the power of love overcomes the love of power. (State) democracy is not the desired political system - it's an aspect of the old world as well: the people of the West are waking up, guarding and leading the world to a new level of consciousness, a new level of Being, just like the people in the Arab World.
"People care about this Great Transformation. Connect and express your support to this Change. The future is Now!" Try Al Jazeera.
