Hello Faithful readers.

I'm back..... *cue applause* I've just had the entire summer off... In that time I've done the following:
Watched various movies and caught up with various TV shows.
Had afternoon naps
Played video games both on PC and PS3
Spent time with my family
Read books I wanted to read which included:
David Moody's Dog Blood
Aron Ralston: Between a rock and a hard place
Jeffery Archers: Twelve red herrings

Now Uni is back, so I'll be about more. I 'plan' to try and update more often.

History unfolds around us everyday in various forms. Yet today (The 22nd of February) we've seen yet another earthquake hit New Zealand. We watched protesters gunned down in Bahrain and things generally turn to shit in Libya once again. People have a tendency today to sprout the words 'oh the youth of today' I've been guilty of it myself. Tenagers and young twenty some-things in Australia or the west doing fuck all with their lives and just 'expecting' a hand out to live life as they choose.

Yet the youth in Egypt and now those in Libya are standing up and trying to get their voices to be heard in an attempt to create a better future for themselves. I think this action is remarkable. As an Australian I have an extremely easy life compared to those in Egypt and Libya. I'm very lucky in the sense of freedom I have within this country. So when a peaceful protest ends in violence. The UN needs to look very hard at their declarations of human rights. See the very clear breach of it and do something about it. Will there be another war out of all this protesting about corrupt governemenets? It's too early to tell, but as an Australian I feel that the Universal Declarations of Human Rights was put in place for a reason, and should countries break those basic human rights, then something needs to be done about it.

Yes I'm taking War, peace and international politics this semester. Yes I have an opnion. Yes I will share it on here. All comments/thoughts on anything I write here is very welcome good or bad.

Thanks for reading. That's all I've got.
