Yes. This is the start of something big: "America is about to experience the same youth-driven, hyper-networked wave of grassroots protests against economic inequality and political oligarchy" that rocked the Arab world, says Micah L.

And now, Egypt has a military government. You want that? I don't.
All the others are either shooting at each other or have been made nonexistent in the region, all the while things are getting worse for the common people as entities consolidate power.
And the media didn't censor them, they just ignored or rather, mocked them...kinda like the Tea Party in its beginnings.
