Evolution in Egypt and the Energy and Element of Euphoria in Human Mass Mobs
When we saw the mass demonstrations, and the million people gathering in the streets of Cairo, we assumed that a new day was being born for each other, that it's government would be evolving, and that the people could finally have a nation so they can live up to the promise of the 21st century. However, as much as one could point out the incredible evolution of Egypt over the last 5000 years, this was not an event that sparked any random genetic mutation.
It seems that there were people behind the scenes of this protest, and many different players involved. We were told that there was pent-up energy and anger over the last 30 years. We were also told that much of the protest was for the same reasons that protests were happening in Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan, and Syria - generally economic reasons. Unemployment, inflation, and the people didn't feel that their governments were taking care of them as their lives had increased hardship.
There are so many players in Egypt it's hard to say which way the mob was going to move. There is The Muslim Brotherhood, the current government loyalists, the University students and bloggers, and just regular citizens who are having trouble eating and affording food. Meanwhile most of the folks feel that the government was not addressing their serious concerns, and further didn't care. What started out as an incredible demonstration of positive energy for change - had later devolved into fighting and chaos between the groups.
Perhaps, this brings forth the reality that any transition and that government must be slow and methodical, organized; and, maybe that was the intent of those sent in to disrupt the protests into a more chaotic scene, which has also been charged by the major media, and the less hostile, and more peaceful protesters.
