Good Luck Egypt!
With persistence and exceptional courage the Egyptian people have brought down a brutal dictator. We hear over and over on the media the question, " how can you negotiate if you have no leaders?" The masses will hopefully answer by creating assemblies with recallable delegates. For negotiate they must. Not with the politicians but with the army who for better or worse hold the reins of power. Egypt is a conservative country with most of the population being devout Muslims and the emergence of a secular, humanist, libertarian socialist society is unlikely. ( But click here for a treat) Whatever happens, the behaviour of ordinary Egyptians over the last couple of weeks is a beacon to us all. I can but wish them well.
