Thank you for this show with someone that seems to me to really get it. Scott Atran put into words so many of the feelings I have had all along but didn't quite have the words to express. As I have watched events unfold in Egypt I have been so excited about the possibilities, and so afraid it might somehow get shut down with yet more violence and repression. Perhaps I am too idealistic, but I can imagine how Egypt might well now not return to 'normal' but rather build on the way they all worked together in such a peaceful way and keep the momentum going towards quantum leaps beyond anything most people in this country seem to be able to imagine. I think the Egyptians might just show us that our current problems are not so impossible to solve if we can learn how to work together, rather than letting selfish impulses keep people behaving so poorly and antagonistically. Again, thank-you so much.
