Misplaced Lessons of TahrirDave Swanson for Salem-News.com
The lesson I take away from The Square is that we must prevent the operation of business as usual until the institution itself, not its face, is fixed.
(WASHINGTON, DC) -

A golden rule for all of us: welcome every idea, however strange it seems, as long as it doesn’t claim to be the absolute good, and as long as it doesn’t refuse differences, and let go of every idea that shuts the door for creation and progress.
While catching up with each other over the challenges facing ordinary Afghans and Egyptians, Sherif Sameer and I talked about how ‘opening our eyes’ could go a long way toward building a better world. We decided to co-write this piece, from Ismailia, Egypt and Kabul, Afghanistan.

On June 30th Egyptians once again, mesmerized the world with a real revolution and with the help of a patriotic military managed to not only do away with the rule of the terrorist MB group but to put the whole new made-in-US world order/conspiracy to a halt.
