control societies and the dependency habit

i came across an interesting post by another (kuwaiti?) blogger with a perspective on kuwaiti business and society and how its run by people with the aim of creating dependencies. short and worth a read:

q80economics: Family Business

but that's how the family figurehead keeps control of the business and ensures dependency of all others! How similar!

israeli hegemony in the middle east

is there anymore proof needed that the US unilaterally supports Israel in a historically unprecedented way?

Gates Reassures Israel About Arms Sales in Gulf - New York Times
Mr. Gates said he made clear that the United States would help Israel maintain its military advantage over its Arab neighbors

i realize this was not the point of the article but the implicit and explicit US kowtowing to Israel is always reason for amazement i find.

disclosure: i am not against anyone's free will and freedom to believe in whatever they chose nor am i a supporter or opposer of any specific causes.
