Is this how liberty dies, to thunderous applause?
I was reminded of this scene in Star Wars when reading about the new riots in Egypt demonstrating that the military has not turned over power to civilian leadership. Did anyone really think that was the direction they were heading? No chance. The military is firmly in control and many of the people will look back fondly on Mubarak’s reign if things play out how I think they will. In Libya, the women who were cheering Gaddafi’s demise will long for his easy going ways once the Islamic movement is done with the government.
Occupy Wall Street be careful about seeking change sometimes its more of the same or worse. The little bloody poster boy provoked violence on himself through acting like a dimwit. No sympathy for him in my book and although I support the right to protest in our country what kind of change for the better do they want?
