Bonapartism, Egypt’s Revolution After the Smoke Clears

Several problems with this article, particularly his definition of Bonapartism which is certainly different from the way it’s been used since Bonaparte crowned himself emperor. But the most important error, imho, is this: “Politics as usual is a thing of the past in Egypt..

Quite obviously he is wrong about this, as recent events attest. The problem is that there has been no revolution in Egypt. There was a military dctatorship [Mubarak] and there still is, and it is now showing its true colors–the same old colors. It is and ever will be politics as usual in Egypt until the people topple the government and assume power directly. Abnsent this, it is a joke to talk abt revolution.
