A revolution is not just about freedom of speech, but the ability to monitor authority and hold it accountable.  When a revolution fails, whether in Tahrir Square or Wall Street, it’s always because someone doesn’t want to get caught.  It is imperative that they keep their privilege of milking the goods of the country any way possible.
