604) Fawazeer Ramadan ::: Three Decades !

Suppose that you became the president of a relatively big but non-developed country for ... let's say 3 decades. El Fazoura: Will the country by the end of this period be better or worse?

Mohaly
P.S. Any resemblance between the fazoura and any actual facts that may go through your mind is a pure coincidence ;)

Experience has taught us that the outcome highly depends on who you are ;)

charlie rose says such a legacy becomes the history of one man/nation. i can't recall the guest's name but he fits the bill:)

*****transplant to mars*******

what if two warring martian nations, the green people and the baby blue, end their ‘millennial bloodshed’ with a landmark treaty under the egis of the red white and blue people. Regrettably, history takes a sad turn of events. the leader of the green people is assassinated by a dissident faction of toad people.

At the time all of mars, including the blue people, expected the greens to descend into anarchy or fall victim to a power grab by the belligerent frog faction. But, from the ashes rose a firm and steady handed ‘green guardian’ who shepherded the greens through a very tumultuous period, and I think you know the rest.

Fast-forward three decades-----the green people have a whole new generation of GREENIES who know nothing of war. Granted unemployment, corruption and social dystopia plague green society. But WAR is no longer part of the current collective consciousness of green society. a phenomenal feat imo!

And yes it does depend on WHO the person is. Some might call it a ‘cult of personality.' I personally see it as a blessing albeit a mixed one!

Kudos mohaly, great Q!

*sorry for the long comment...

I would take this responsibility only for max. 5 years- which i think should be very enough to see some results of my tream's work. depending on it, i would decide to continue or not for another 5 years.conisdering of course the regular check and milestones.
10 years are more than enough for one person to rule. new blood is needed afterwards.
after those 10 years, i am positive there will be a good change-even if slightely noticeable.

if you insist on the 3 decades, then NO. the country will end up being in worse condition.

history is a great teacher :)))

I like what H.A.W said, I would do the same, just give myself 5 years and see what will happen.

Ohhhh I believe that resemblance between el fazoura and ehmmm any actual fact is PURE coincidence.

Anyways if it ever happens with a country that the president stays for 3 decades it will difinetly be worse.
Imagine it as a corporate with one man show and no career path, no development will happen, no motivation, no career path.

H.A.W. said...

marianne,
no comment on your first words, just a wink and a wide smile :)))))))))))))))))))))))))
on last part, true. this will be a disaster for any corporation
