.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Thanks for the link. I was just wondering earlier today what is happening with the Honduran situation. From the bits I read a few days ago, it sounds like the ousted prez is groveling to get his old job back.

edited to add:
That's one of the best-written articles I've read on the Honduran political crisis.
