social sphere had been granted if there is a tyrant and dictator ruler of his people must act ... but the value of spirituality on the principle of consciousness in motion becomes impossible not to be based. motion is not only reactionary just yet ... like a revival in Iran .. Egypt should be so too ...
The natural consequence of dictatorship and undemocratic rule.
Very sad some despots have brutally suppressed such mass demonstrations in the past. Those despots will pay for their actions one day.
It really depends upon your meaning of the word, "issue." I have been sure, based on history, that rebellion and overturning goverments (read: monarchies or autocracies) spread like wildfire. So, in other words, if you look at world history from the time of the American Revolution, you would see a wave of rebellions, the most notable of which was the French Revolution. I hesitate to use the word freedom here, so please try to understand what I am saying, but "freedom" is contagious. Eventually, things will settle down and everybody will get back to their lives. And, really, unless your family is from that region or country, how does this actually affect you? I am all for globalization, but let other countries run themselves as long as they are not a threat.
Power to the people! Congratulations to the Egyptian people!
One dictator leaves and a new one will take over. In every society there is always only a limited genetic pool with strong social ties and financial power.
A key problem in Egypt would be if they really would become a democracy and so would install an islamic regime that then of course would diminish democracy and could lead to conflicts with Israel.
I guess there are now many nations trying to push the next elections into a direction, in that a candidate becomes president that is wanted by the foreign world, but not necessary one who will do what the egyptians want.
Their opposition to tyranny and the courage to stand against it, is worthy of more than my opinion, it is worthy of applause!
Observers who get giddy at change should wait to see if the new is better than the old. In the Untied States
(I spelled it that way on purpose) where I live, voters were promised change in the last presidential election.........................
and we got it.
Change - small amounts of money, such as nickels and dimes. We used to have dollars and now we have

It appears to me that the torture issue, as Frank Rich observed in today's NY Times, is "bigger" than Obama. Rich's Op-ed provides a concise summary of where the issue currently stands. In my opinion, Obama had better get out from in front of the train! Here's a link to Frank Rich's...
