Living in the hinterland has advantages

I was reading the news the other day about the 1st day of protest in Egypt. And it revived a feeling I’d felt a few decades before … so I vlogged about it.

The video was more about the fact that living in the rural area where I do not an awful lot happens … and when you look at what’s happening in Tunisia and Egypt that might be a good thing.

It also points out that totalitarian regimes will inevitable fall because you can only keep people oppressed for so long … and then they realize that they’ve got nothing to lose by rising up and revolting against the regime that is perceived as being the problem. As in the fall of the Iron Curtain I see a simple crisis of confidence: if the people stop believing in the system it crumbles.
