The Current US Depression vs Egypt's Revolution

Our woes are caused by an overconcentration of wealth. The
fundamental concept of Democracy is the theory that power is better
distributed amongst the many than concentrated in the few.

As we continue to concentrate all economic, political and social power
into fewer and fewer people, we fundamentally reject the very notion
of Democracy we claim to hold dear. Our continued concentration of
power is leading us into becoming what Egypt *was*, not into what
Egypt hopes to be.
