One needs to know where each of those starts and where it ends. Facing danger is courageous, ignoring the presence of a danger is reckless and not realizing that there is a danger is idiotic. Facing the police on January 28th was courageous, holding a protest in front of the Israeli embassy was reckless and definitely not realizing what the majority of the population really thinks about this revolution is idiotic. Deciding to have a second revolution is courageous, not having proper security in place is reckless and calling for a sit-in on May 27th is idiotic.
If anyone has any idea what the popularity of the revolution is on the ground today, they would think a million times before holding another protest, let alone another sit-in. I initially oppose the upcoming protest, not because I'm against demonstrations and not because I'm against the demands (probably because I still can't figure out what are the exact demands) but mainly because I believe that the movement is totally unorganized, lacks direction and focus.The absence of any leadership whether elected or self-imposed is the main reason why there is such disconnect between the pressure and the actual realization of the demands. The Cat and Mouse game being played with the SCAF is the definition of chaos: a protest is planned, two days before the SCAF starts taking some decisions. At which stage, protesters think that they made a win and the pressure should continue. But the truth of the matter is that the decisions are random and are not following any specific priority list. Moreover, most of the decisions are not tied to a time frame and there is no mechanism to follow them up. But possibly also because the demands themselves are not part of a coherent vision with a clear time plan. The randomness of the demands, coupled with the randomness of the decisions being taken is – to say the least – counterproductive.
This back and forth process is not only counterproductive it is sending a very worrying message to the silent majority: "nobody has any clue where this country is going". If the two parties that seem to hold the fate of this country in their hands (revolutionaries and SCAF) do not have any control on where things are going, then we're screwed. Revolutionaries don't seem to agree on the course to be taken: yes to presidential council, no to presidential council, yes to delaying elections, no to delaying elections, constitution before elections, constitution after elections.. and the list continues. On the other hand, the SCAF isn't really setting a clear path neither, they say one thing and when the pressure rises they do another. Both parties have a reactionary approach which leaves one wondering if anyone can really guide this country through the coming period.
The silent majority, which was not so silent on February 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th, is now watching the tug of war. They are watching this struggle while thinking about their security, their money and their future. They will place their bets (a lot already did) on one of the two parties. The first one says it has a plan, has access to the media and is continuously sharing their fears of security and the economy. The other party is unorganized, has no media (thus cannot reach them), is continuously causing road blockages, violent confrontations and hasn't really delivered anything except complete chaos. Moreover, they are really not telling anyone what the big plan is.
Now let's think again: do you believe that the best way to manage the next phase is to continue this cat and mouse game? Do you believe that you will gain the popular support that you had in February, the real pressure that ousted Mubarak? If anything goes wrong on May 27th, do you think that you will have the backing of the people? Are you facing this danger, are you ignoring it or are you not even aware that it exists?
P.S. If you are calling for a sit-in, I suggest you read this post one more time.
