A recent Journeyman video questions the roots of the recent Jasmin Revolutions.
The video looks at Otpor, a revolutionary training school that was instrumental in the toppling of Slobodan Milosevic in the 1990s. Their logo is the logo of the Egyptian revolution.
Gene Sharp is the American author of the "revolution guide book" that was used in the recent revolutions to topple US-backed dictators. He has been branded by Hugo Chavez and the Russian regime as a "rabble rouse in the employ of the CIA."
Leaders within the Arab revolutions, as well as leaders of the revolutions of Eastern Europe in the 1990s, maintain that they were not coerced by free-market ideologies.
Believe this video or not, there remain forces within the Jasmine Revolutions that seek to blunt the effects of the peoples' struggle.
