Just rearranging the furniture

May 28, 2011

Ben Stein says that the Arab Spring is a hoax. He says this based on the results thus far. The revolution in Egypt has given rise to anti-Israel, anti-US forces throughout the region. No western style democracy has broken out.

I will agree that the Arab Spring is a hoax but I don’t say that  based on results. I say that based on process. Cult defines culture. The god you worship defines what you are. The revolutions that are taking place are not changing the religious dynamic. Therefore they will not change the culture. Therefore political upheavals will just rearrange the furniture.
