Yes that was roughtly what I meant, but on a wider/larger scale since this contagion will impact most of the world and strip a lot of the elites from
round the world of their power..
Having looked at history I don't neglect the fact those in power/hold control are human and their responses are based on human emotions.. and fear
plays a big part in my premise.
My interpretation of the response from the elite is based on their fear as to what "might" happen to them at the hands of a very angry public.
(there are enough revolutions/rebellions/uprising to demonstrate how those things "can" go for the elite, hung, shot, chopped heads)
This is a contagion (In my book a contagion can be good).. and too varying degrees this contagion is gripping most nations around the globe.. it
isn't just Egypt or Tunisia.. however a contagion needs to start somewhere with a patient zero.
As with all things everyone watches what happens, and with success comes confidence, and confidence change can come through action spreads fast.. and
that is a good thing.. and this current movement is very confident (for good reasons)
However, moving back to my premise of what is good for the general public is not always good for the elite is the idea that in this situation a
deposed elite suffer more at the hands of their own general public than at the hands of an external enemy even if they lose. (plenty of examples of
Right now, I fear those nations on the edge of this, or those nations that fear this wave will turn against them the preferable option is to turn this
into a war, thus unifying their nation in response to this contagion.
