In a hugely symbolic victory of sound economics and practicality triumphing over stupid, backwards and idiotic sectarian violence, religious, and ethnic discrimination, the French oil refining company Total has successfully brokered a joint oil drilling/natural gas development deal with Qatar (Sunni dominated) and Iran (Shia dominated) as joint partners.

In a vain attempt to streamline global new world order governance, it is sometimes very tempting for “macro” world leaders to simply implement domestic and global policies which completely steam roll over the rights of their individual citizens, for purposes of ease of control and rule, rather than taking the time out to deal with, and rectify, the multiple internecine conflicts, fundamental denials of human and civil rights, race/religious/ethnic tensions, and the rampant injustices which plague their people.
