Wealth is a personal perception. Wasn't it surprising how many iPhones were in Tahrir Square? All the cars of the little people are large sedans. They dress like westerners and 60% of Egypt's population is 25 and younger.
Does anyone know how Soros might be involved in any of this African uprising?
We live in exciting times.
Under the various uprising countries’ keywords, there are some topics (Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, more).
But yeah, the population of Egypt is mostly too young to remember a time before Mubarak, so it was a big deal when he left office, regardless of how any one person may have felt about the loss.
And the miniaturized electronics which helped us win the space race and close the missile gap have made it difficult, at best, to keep the lid on. Those poor, misunderstood despots... when the USSR fell apart, it was due to an attempted coup. Boris Yeltsin and others communicated with the outside world via the fax machines, which is what they had, and it was newly ubiquitous technology. Saved their bacon.
There was a freeper post about Soros being involved... have no idea how to find it - someone else might know...
