Referring to the current brutal crackdown on Morsi supporters in Egypt, the authors write:
It is a bloody dress rehearsal for the liquidation of the Egyptian revolution. It aims to break the revolutionary will of all Egyptians who are claiming their rights, whether workers, poor, or revolutionary youth, by creating a state of terror.Looking at this tragic current Egyptian crisis from an historical perspective, I see it as another test for working people to see if they can rise above ruling class efforts to divide them into classes, nationalities, genders, religions, sects, young versus old, etc, which has always led to their defeat. This statement clearly reflects a sane response to the crisis. Will the Egyptians be the first in the era of civilization to embrace this profound insight and successfully take collaborative actions against their true oppressors in order to create an inclusive, classless, real democracy? Stay tuned, better yet, stay active.
