Chris Blattman has an excellent post about how difficult it is to speculate about what the results of Mubarak's overthrow will be five years down the road. That is what is thrilling about this week in Egypt-- the future could go in many different directions. Egyptians' actions in the coming months will determine the course of history. Of course, none of this would have been possible with the Mubarak family in power.
Egyptians: The future is yours, good luck!
