Lebanon’s Day of Rage

26 Jan

I’m going to keep coming back to Lebanon. The people are upset about where the government is going, and there may even be a rival government forming. I would normally say that I don’t condone violence, but if democracy has ever had a peaceful birth, I’m not aware of it.

When the people are willing to fight and die to found their government, that’s when a democracy or republic can actually work, because the people are invested. They say birth is a beautiful thing. If you want to see democracy born in the Middle East, keep your eyes on Lebanon.
