Act II?

This morning I’m mulling this. The explosive expansion of human freedom in 1989 at the close of the Long War may have only been a first act, for what we have been seeing since the Iranian protests of 2009, and especially in recent weeks in the Arab world, may be something much bigger than we think. I wish I could read the history books of the future, but the crazy-hopeful side of me is thinking: you who mistake luck and the fruits of brutality as a license to dominate and silence, your days are numbered.
