#Egypt

January 28, 2011

Protests in Egypt appear to be reaching critical mass. Following in Tunisia’s footsteps, the youth are empowered and seem bent on taking down the Mubarak regime. The govt has cut off all mobile and internet access.

These are monumental days. The Iranians gave people hope, the Tunisians changed their own country and now the Egyptians are on the verge of changing the whole region.

We all hope for the best in Egypt (specifically that the people can head down a liberal democratic road and avoid the temptation of radicalism).

Huntington wrote the 3rd wave and now it seems we are witnessing the fourth.
