As the dawn breaks over a new Egypt, the former protesters, now proud citizens of a burgeoning democratic Egypt are collectively cleaning up Tahrir Square and getting ready to begin the amazing and determined task to build a government for the people and by the people.
In the 20th century, I think this person is right. But hold on! This is the Facebook 21st century! Not so fast……. What strikes me most strongly is that this Tunisnian, now Egyptian event is part a bigger grander major shift on the global political techtonics. This Facebook generation of Eqyptians are nothing like the past. They speak and quote Martin Luther King and seek American style freedom and liberty. Many speak English and want to live in the global world. Yet our own US Government seems stuck between the 20th and 21st century, between what was and what is to come and it’s starting to look like we are missing the history boat. Maybe we are on the wrong side of historicial? Maybe the future is here and we can’t see it through our 20th century eyes?
