Now the real difficult work begins! It took us a long time to developed to this flawed but admirable democracy.
For one, I'm an opptomist who thinks that the Egyptians who rose up there will be responsible, and hopefully will have learned from our's and other's mistakes. Perhaps they are not destined to repeat the follies of history. My optomism rose from recent news beginning with a report of Muslims forming a circle around Christians so they could worship in peace followed by Christians doing the same for the Muslims.
Apparently a secret police shooting precipitated this uprising which has filled the streets for, is it 18 days now? This many people outraged at the atrocities propagated by their government to the point of facing down a violent autocracy at the risk of their lives and property will no doubt continue this battle to a positive end. Whether their new government is of "Western" orientation or not is irrelevant at this point. Any tyrant that falls and is replaced by a flawed democracy is a monumental improvement of planet earth. Begin with individual human rights and build from there.
Hail Egypt! Welcome to the 21st century.
(Was that corny?)
