(When big business wants a fascist dictatorship because it’s better for big business, they are willing to do whatever it takes to facilitate a speedy transition. They will lay off workers, close stores, strip shelves of product… whatever it takes to frustrate the public and help create an atmosphere for “CHANGE”. Kissinger famously said he had to make the economy of Chile scream because the people voted the wrong way when they elected Salvador Allende. “Revelations that President Richard Nixon had ordered the CIA to “make the economy scream” in Chile to “prevent Allende from coming to power or to unseat him,” prompted a major scandal in the mid-1970s” . We see the same thing happened in Egypt. Big business wants fascism because it puts them in charge and they will use whatever leverage they can in order to see it happen. Take for instance Wal Mart’s recent threat to the city of Washington where they promised to pull out all of their stores immediately if the “Living Wage” ordinance was passed. It’s a small example but a good one. Big business is at war with us right now while simultaneously depending on us, on the government’s collusion with them AGAINST us, to generate the massive profit margins they have become accustomed to. Any so-called “plan” to address the situation we are in that does NOT address this key aspect is not a plan, it’s a distraction. The Business Plot of 1934 is upon us once again and we need to understand it for what it is.)

The streets seethe with protests and government ministers are on the run or in jail, but since the military ousted President Mohamed Morsi, life has somehow gotten better for many people across Egypt: Gas lines have disappeared, power cuts have stopped and the police have returned to the street.
The apparently miraculous end to the crippling energy shortages, and the re-emergence of the police, seems to show that the legions of personnel left in place after former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011 played a significant role — intentionally or not — in undermining the overall quality of life under the Islamist administration of Mr. Morsi.
And as the interim government struggles to unite a divided nation, the Muslim Brotherhood and Mr. Morsi’s supporters say the sudden turnaround proves that their opponents conspired to make Mr. Morsi fail. Not only did police officers seem to disappear, but the state agencies responsible for providing electricity and ensuring gas supplies failed so fundamentally that gas lines and rolling blackouts fed widespread anger and frustration.
“This was preparing for the coup,” said Naser el-Farash, who served as the spokesman for the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade under Mr. Morsi. “Different circles in the state, from the storage facilities to the cars that transport petrol products to the gas stations, all participated in creating the crisis.”
Working behind the scenes, members of the old establishment, some of them close to Mr. Mubarak and the country’s top generals, also helped finance, advise and organize those determined to topple the Islamist leadership, including Naguib Sawiris, a billionaire and an outspoken foe of the Brotherhood; Tahani El-Gebali, a former judge on the Supreme Constitutional Court who is close to the ruling generals; and Shawki al-Sayed, a legal adviser to Ahmed Shafik, Mr. Mubarak’s last prime minister, who lost the presidential race to Mr. Morsi…
… Mr. Sawiris, one of Egypt’s richest men and a titan of the old establishment, said Wednesday that he had supported an upstart group called “tamarrod,” Arabic for “rebellion,” that led a petition drive seeking Mr. Morsi’s ouster. He donated use of the nationwide offices and infrastructure of the political party he built, the Free Egyptians. He provided publicity through his popular television network and his major interest in Egypt’s largest private newspaper. He even commissioned the production of a popular music video that played heavily on his network.
“Tamarrod did not even know it was me!” he said. “I am not ashamed of it.”

(There’s your “real revolution”… bought, paid for, fabricated by the fascist businessmen of the Mubarak era (along with help from various U.S. NGOs of course). The climate of frustration was created by them, the failing state of Egypt was their gift to their country in order to bring back pure dictatorial fascism. There’s your “real revolution”)
