That was the headline I used back in October of 2011 when I first linked to the following article by Nouriel Roubini:
OWS and the Arab Spring may now seem like little more than exuberant spasms of defiance dimly remembered (or would that be dimly imagined?) as, three and a half years later, the Middle East appears hell-bent on all-out conflagration and Americans prepare to endure eighteen months of a farcical presidential campaign among rival defenders of the status quo.
But now there a lot of people thinking about what comes next, thinking about what the Next System might be. If you want something different, help them figure it out.
Change can’t come fast enough.
