Where are they now? Was just reading an editorial that mentioned a sitcom episode involving a news reporter tearing a new orifice for a fictional Occupy activist. This brought to mind the recent unrest in Egypt, and I wondered, what is going on in Libya that we are not hearing about? what about Tunisia, the place that got the ball rolling? What, in fact, has been the result of these glorious, high-flown revolutions? Meet the new boss, same as the old boss (is "revolution" another word for going around in circles)? Worse, perhaps? Have we just put it out-if-sight-out-of-mind (i.e., no news coverage to speak of)? Ultimately, is it at all realistically possible to learn from these events and effects, in order that revolution might not lead to dreadful disorder? Or can we expect human nature to screw us over?
