This is pretty much how "revolutions" have gone throughout history... except, maybe, the French revolution (for a brief period, anyway) because they
actually sent a few heads rolling!
The reality is, the situation in Egypt is a reflection of the global situation, the fight is one of the average, middle-class citizen versus the
wealthy corporations, oligarchies and aristocracies which make up the so-called "ruling elite".
The mainstream media never (or rarely) emphasizes this point, but the revolutions in Northern Africa, the Middle East, and now Greece (Spain,
Portugal, Ireland and Italy soon to follow) has everything to do with citizens having had enough of their countries' wealth being exported to foreign
banks and corporations or hoarded by a "select" few, while the tab is being handed down to the average, tax-paying citizens.
The sad thing is, unless a few heads start rolling (figuratively, of course... "cough, cough") the power structures are set-up to ensure that
whatever uprisings might erupt in the streets, the status quo is protected behind the doors of the respective parliaments.
That said, the people are not as ignorant as the politicians seem to think, and this revolution is taking on a world-wide fervor... if only THE PEOPLE
understood that they were all fighting the same fight.
