A while ago I visited friends in South America. There was serious discontent with the government, and my friends explained that over the past ten years they had had six presidents. Each had been elected or replaced following public uprisings. But none of the changes my friends yearned for have occurred. Corruption, nepotism, broken promises, continued, regardless of who was governing.
Both vision and spirituality are essential for real change to occur.
"Regime change" is part of the world's vocabulary today. We've seen it recently in Haiti, Iraq, Bolivia, and Liberia. These changes often involve long drawn-out struggles. But changing the head of government is easier than changing the "culture" of government.
