Egypt's irrational exuberance

There's a lot of talk about freedom and democracy in Egypt, but faced as the world is with economic collapse, how much freedom can anyone have? I think it's a joke on the people of Egypt by those who orchestrated the whole thing, manipulating desperate and enraged Egyptians into going along with their plan to replace Mubarak with a fundamentalist regime for the next phase of the "Apocalypse" and make it look like a democratic revolution. As with our "leaders," Egypt's figureheads are just puppets, figures on a media stage. They take orders from their puppeteers, and the blame for them, and are replaced with new puppets.
