As I watch Egypt spiral down to destruction one has to wonder if it’s not deliberate. After all, who would be the most devastated by such a collapse? Mostly the urban and the educated, basically the same targets as Year Zero in Cambodia but this time, without any special work or effort by the government. So why not? Everyone seems to presume the Muslim Brotherhood would fall in such a situation, but I am not so confident and I have no difficulty accepting that the MB itself doesn’t believe that, but rather thinks it would be a beneficial purge of the infidels and apostate. We presume that everyone wants to rule over a modern, prosperous state but that’s just parochialism. Others have demonstratively had different priorities.
