Watching fireworks last night, I was amazed by the extent to which we have devolved to accepting bread and circuses. I was in a place in which 25,000 people came to watch fireworks, while in Egypt millions of people poured in to the street to oust their fascist leader. You can have fireworks, but forget freedom, privacy, rule of law, respect for international norms etc etc. The irony was amazing that Egypt represents people power, while we are appeased with Chinese imports of all kinds.
