Is a revolution enough though? It seems to me that the lesson of the Arab Spring was that a revolution is only helpful when there’s a plan what to do with the new freedom. It seems Tunisia has done a good job with this focusing on the work of writing a new constitution. But based on what we see in Egypt or Libya just revolution itself creates a vacuum that can breed violence and instability.
Let’s say you got your wish for a revolution. What would you like your country to be? Would you expect the West to help you or stay out of it? How would the new Nigeria treat former terrorists, kill them or try to rehabilitate them? What influence should religion have on the state? Are there any countries who could act as role models? What would you expect of your fellow citizens and what rights should you have? Who would pay to make those rights a reality?
