We need to be less focused on the #Coup_Inc, and El Sisi, and focused instead on specific policies. Personalities are irrelevant; policies are not.
We need to be less fixated on the issue of democracy, and instead concern ourselves with sovereignty. There is no such thing as democracy without independence.
We need to think more about power and control than about government; they are not the same things.
Ultimately what has to happen in Egypt, and everywhere else for that matter (but Egypt can lead the way in this effort), is to achieve real popular sovereignty through direct confrontational activism to impose accountability upon the owners of the means of control.
This will mean, frankly, frustrating the ability of multinationals to operate in Egypt, and dictating, through targeted disruption, the conditions for their presence in the country.
That is the way to independence, and that is the practical meaning of democracy in the 21st century.
