    Which event of the year 2011 will become the most important historical event?

    Look back at 2011. Which event will become the one everybody will remember?

    Maybe the rioting in the UK? I'm from here and it was pretty intense!

    I'd say the Arab Spring, though that may not be counted as one event

    Perhaps the Occupy protests as a whole, if not the other events listed.

    It was a tumultuous year. North Africa has broken free and left the US Sphere of Influence (for now). The US House of Representatives is divided on the two choices of whether to bankrupt the federal government or to let the US economy collapse. They couldn't decide between the two and so passed no budget for 2011 and operated under a continuing resolution. Europe and the Middle East are in uprising. Economic progressive movements, not afraid to be labelled "communist", are taking place in the US for the first time since the 1930s. For the first time, a US President ordered the assassination of a US citizen without due process of law. The president ordered the assassination of Osama bin Laden. The CIA has begun tapping anyone outside the US who mentions frustration at US foreign policy on the internet. The president vetoed a peace treaty between the Palestinians and Israelis. Israel is on the verge of war with Iran. The now-Shia-controlled Iraq hangs tenuously within the US sphere of influence as our troops are withdrawn. Some really terrible movies were made. Thankfully, the age of that oppressive brain box known as televison is spiralling into terminal decline. The Italians bought the Chrysler company, leaving only two US-based auto manufacturers remaining. An inarticulate, yet highly-informed generation is taken the place of the old brainwashed, yet articulate generation.

    The change in leadership in Egypt and Libya have become important historical events in 2011. The Arab Spring is still an ongoing process so it doesn't qualify as yet. However, these 2 events have had concrete outcomes, the fall of authoritarian regimes that have been in power for decades in these 2 North African countries.

    The Arab Spring had the most impact, and it will have the longest effect. It will either be a triumph for democracy or a collapse into anarchy in the Maghreb and Middle East. This will make it the most important historical event.

    I think the revolutions in North Africa and the middle east will have more long term effect on the world that almost anything else.
