I thought about writing about Egypt today. Then I thought better of it as there is probably a saturation of much more informed voices on ths subject. It is a momentous day for Egyptians and I celebrate with them.
I think in the long run today will be remembered as an important milestone for something else other than just Egypt’s move towards a more democratic state; the beginning of an age when affairs of state are more difficult to conduct in secret and public opinion is much more difficult to control and subvert. Well, that is my wish anyway.
Wishing that this century will be much less violent than the extraordinarily bloody 20th century.
