Persian Gulf

In Kiribati, for example, which is a UN member country and people walked a little loose. It is not a capricious desire or pilgrim. With three minutes longer than it takes to travel the hundred meter dash, could never represent Spain in the Olympics. However, as a citizen I guess a "either associate or full-a Kiribati mediopensionista would have more opportunities to do so. If it is legitimate to want to Artur Mas to compete under the flag of Andorra, why I could not do under that of Kiribati? I argued a friend of mine from the Basque Nationalist Party that such aspirations can not be exercised individually, but collectively as a people with a sovereign right to self determination. If so, for me that it is not. Will present to the council of my people Arias articulated a plan for submission to the will of the people democratically to all neighbors. In total absence of violence, of course.

It is a living plan that would insist that everyone vote in beautiful urns that could be designed by Santiago Calatrava or by Miquel Barcelo, so you can see that this is a progressive plan that looks to the future instead to remain anchored in the past. Partner made by democratic referendum of all citizens and the citizens of my town, I will propose that is not already in Kiribati, to avoid looking like crazy the archipelago on maps and encyclopedias. I suggest we do with the sultanate of Brunei, Kuwait or some other Persian Gulf oil emirate, which would amount meteorically our income per capita, if approved. In order to see that this is a legitimate democratic choice will be maintained dual citizenship, so that those who so wish, to continue to encourage uninhibited Raul, Pau Gasol, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Fernando Alonso. And nobody argues that this tort is a plan of rupture. Upside down: no one can deny the legitimate right of the residents of my people or my neighborhood, my block and up the portal from home, if I hurry "to decide freely their future.

Influencing others is the dream of politicians. Is it only them? No, of course not. Most of us live them managed to achieve some effect on people. It is a vital necessity. Everyone is affected in some way by the behavior of other human beings. Hence the need arises spontaneously in any way to influence them.

To achieve such effects rather than an elusive goal is rather an inevitable result. All we influence others by our mere presence. At least should divert its course to avoid colliding with us. But beyond that, like it or not receive our influence. Influence is thus not a problem for anyone.

The question is rather to influence people we want, when we want and in the direction that suits us. Are privileged who can do it, it's true. But it is not purely a gift beyond the reach of normal people. The ability to influence is a quality that is learned. Much has been talked about subject, perhaps too much. There is a lot of myths in the influence that anyone can exercise over others. But there are misconceptions especially regarding the way that can be achieved. In this regard I wish to clarify three things: Influencing others is as necessary as possible and inevitable. To achieve it in the desired direction just to learn some ideas and skills. Can not be influenced at any time about anyone in our own way if they were puppets. Regarding the latter has come to speak of the existence of techniques "mysterious" able to hypnotize the audience.
