Times are changing, and so are we. Our society may inadvertently crave its own demise. We may even be driven toward it, but that does not mean we have to go along with any agenda that presents itself. We must become aware of what is happening all around us. We shouldn’t turn a blind eye to the reality of the very real problems that will affect future generations. However, awareness is only the first step, we must openly acknowledge the dangerous path that we have chosen… More importantly, we must observe and analyse recent events in order to fully understand their implications.
Prior to civil and/or military action, particularly when the risk of ethnically motivated attacks or retaliation is high, some embassies prefer to quietly withdraw important diplomats and dignitaries.

Africa: Uganda’s Foreign Affairs ministry said on Wednesday that several embassies and organisations have evacuated their staff and citizens from South Sudan to the country following fighting between two rival factions in Juba.

Turkey: The consulate said in an email to German citizens that both facilities the consulate and the nearby school, Deutsche Schule Istanbul would stay shut as a precaution. This followed what it described as a “warning that could not be conclusively verified.” It also urged German citizens to stay away from the area.
