    Amazing, the men who keeps pronounces simple solutions. Tweeter, Facebook, etc may help communicate just as in different times different means of communications were used. The issue is never the means of communications but rather the message and the longer term measure - in many cases the people who participated in the revolution for possible human reasons would be amazed that the functionaries that take over the next day are not as committed to these principles. The questions is what education has been provided them to be able to judge those who will take over the next day, what mechanisms will they use to restrain them , etc. The revolution in Iran is a case in point - the Shah was a tyrant and the replacement is the same, however, the replacement is lasting longer then what everyone expected the Shah to survive a absolute power and the areas of its focus are far more broad and leathel. Shimon Peres in his usual way is big of 'feeling' poor on long term analysis. Even if you support the revolutions you should ask yourself how to help them turn into a positive force rather then decay as happened in history before to an even more negative force.
