Yesterday an entire country fell off the internet and cell phone grid. Imagine if that happened to you.

and the only response I can really think of right now is this:

People should not be afraid of their government; governments should be afraid of their people”

I often forget how privileged I am to live in a Western World country with all the trimmings. As places to live go Germany is pretty damned good, really. Good social system in place, good health care system in place, decent standard pf living and so on. So watching Al Jazeera  live stream the hell that is going on in Egypt right now really brought this home.
