We've seen a truly bottom up, leaderless revolution. Now, there are many questions. I've "primed the pump" by starting off with a few. Please add yours, along with predictions and answers.
How can the meme, started in Tunisia, be exercised in the USA?
Where will it manifest next?
How can we exploit, in a positive way, the energy and power of this revolutionary phenomena, set off, initially, by wikileaks?
How will the USA's and Obama's role in this be recounted and perceived?
How can the left use the right's fascist, dictator-defending and embracing response? And what deluded fantasy conspiracy theories will psychopath comedian Glenn Beck ejaculate?
What can activists in the US and around the world learn from the events in Egypt and Tunisia, particularly in terms of strategies for change?
Which dictators, in which nations will fall next?
(Algeria has crowds and soldiers massed at the capitol. Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, portrayed very negatively in Al Jazeera's leaked Palestinian Papers has stepped down... for starters.)
What will happen to Mubarak's billions. He's been reported to have between $50 and $70 billion.
(apparently the Swiss have frozen
some funds in some accounts.)
Will Egypt's military release power to the people of Egypt?
How will Israel be affected by this? Will the treaty hold? Will political powers in Israel be affected?
Since this WAS set off by Wikileaks revelations
about Tunisia's president, and there are many more revelations to come, which other nations will be impacted, which dictators will be exposed to this new, leaderless, bottom up revolutionary phenomenon?
These questions are just the tip of the iceberg. Please add your as comments.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.
