We are pretty quick to call ourselves civilised. I don't buy it. I see too much happening and in escalation to show otherwise - in agreement with Mahatma really. Does South Africa fall under umbrella of 'The West' though? I'm not sure about that.
I heard the funniest line about Mahatma Gandhi. Basically a play on the fact that he walks around bare foot, never ate very well so was pretty weak and frail and due to his diet and without a teeth brushing regime, well lets just say his was not sponsored by Colgate.
So some clever individual came up with the play on that singing chick with the umbrella's song that went something like this:
"Mahatma Gandhi was a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis"
Pwwwhhaaaa haaa ha. Love it.
