In which Hank Green attempts to explain the revolution going on in Egypt (seemingly again).
The situation in Egypt is extremely complicated and changing constantly. The arguments between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood go back over half a century and they are much more complicated than the press tends to give them credit for.
I just wanted to share a tiny bit of context to help the world understand the different stakeholders, what they want, why they're angry, and why the first democratically elected leader of Egypt lasted so little time.
Thank you very much to Mohktar Awad for spending so much time on the phone with me yesterday setting me straight!
