    I have read that Lebanon is at near the end, the people can't take very much more. Winter is coming. Harvest time is coming too.
    Sloth and apathy are not things that can be cured, or eliminated over night, or between the TV ads, like in the Hollywood. This is real. What are the people there going to do when they cannot get to The Bank, their money means nothing and they can't find any reliable water, to drink and to water their crops and animals? Fertiliser..... Farming machinery, a will to use shovels and where to find horses and mules??? tractors? Oh, pay with what? Fiat Money?????
    How many people are going to have broken hearts??
    it is going to take years, decades, to fix all the broken stuff [not just in Lebanon!] that needs to be fixed.
    Was it Vlad Lenin or a famous Journalist that said "Civilisation is two meals and twenty-four hours away from barbarism..."? [I bet lots of Great Men have said that.....]
