Why evolution could never solve aging?
Your hypothesis does not seem to answer your own question. It maybe more appropriate to ask- Why do some species have longer life spans than others? If you are in fact trying to answer this question then I believe you have provided a hypothesis that confuses 2 elementary principles that are essential in understanding and explaining evolution and natural selection ie. Individuals adapt. Populations evolve.

Srdja Popovic: How to topple a dictator
What you are describing here about the financial system could very well happen to the countries mentioned by the speaker. The new government may end up being just as misguided and indifferent to the needs of country. There is no question that urgent action by the people is called for to bringing down a horrible dictator but that is only the first step to achieve true positive reform. The people who have been part of the Arab Spring must not become complacent. Citizens of these countries find themselves in a very unfamiliar situation and what they do now in this transitional period will have even greater impact on their future. I only hope that they recognize this and not waste this chance for change.
