Looking towards the Future
I have been following the revolution in Egypt for the last two weeks and am so impressed by the youth of this country. They have chosen to express their disdain and rejection for the only government they have lived under since their birth. Based on disparity, poverty and brutality under a dictatorship. The youth of Egypt today comprise over 50% of the population and many are well educated without jobs.
I am totally impressed by their peaceful approach and their use of the Social Media to spread their message. I am completely in their corner and I expect it will eventually cause the downfall of the current government. Possibly this will become the roadmap for a global movement amongst the youth in other suppressed countries especially in the Middle East. The world is changing and it's about time to get rid of the old dictatorships who use fear to suppress the masses in order to line their own pockets.
The Internet is proving what a powerful vehicle this is globally. There is no turning back.
