Bassma Kodmani and others reflect on the role of youth and the immensity of what is happening in Egypt

"The ruling elite warned about the advent of chaos if it yielded power, and claimed it was holding the wolf by the ears. The wolf in its mind meant the society but it turns out that the society is much more civic than the leadership. It is now the people’! s turn to hold the real wolf by the ears to prevent it from reasserting its control of power."
