SETTING AN EXAMPLE IN EGYPT
I was thinking last night what a great example the people's revolution in Egypt was setting for the rest of the world. By and large it has been a relatively peaceful and non-violent effort. Obviously at some level they have won over those who control the military. They appear to be uniting Muslim and Christian in the streets, old and young, unemployed and professional class. It's really the right way to do it.
Then I thought about the U.S. and the "Tea Party's" proclivity to strap on pistols and carry around super-duper machine guns as they claim their brand of revolution. They blame immigrants and blacks and "Socialists". Here it is all about separation and divide and conquer. It's like we have swallowed the "business model" brand of politics. In Egypt their success seems to be from a unity of purpose.
We have much to learn from the people in Egypt. I hope people in America are paying close attention.
