More Protests Inbound

Oppressive oligarchies will continue to crumble as more countries have penciled in their own ‘Days of Anger’:

  • Syria Feb. 5
  • Algeria Feb 12
  • Bahrain on Feb 14
  • Libya Feb 30
  • Morocco Mar 13

Tunisia, Yemen, and Jordan have already seen some fruits from their demonstrations. As more countries’ corrupt regimes topple, fresh energy will be added the already volatile spirits of an oppressed people.

This is probably why Egypt’s Mubarak keeps hanging on, even though he’s been told by millions he should step down. He’s wants to quit. His billions are  surely safe offshore somewhere. Mubarak should just go already.

Despite his claims of staying to prevent the chaos that would erupt in his absence, Mubarak’s reluctance to retire likely stems the intense pressure coming from those who want to see the Egyptian civil uprisings get squashed. When Egypt falls, it will lean heavily into the impending domino effect, leading to a dramatic shift in the balance of power.

No longer will the people be afraid of the government. Now, governments will be held accountable to the people, and this is precisely what authoritarian regimes don’t want to happen.
