Interesting to follow uprisings in Egypt and other parts of the Arab world on the news

Hope it goes in the direction of more social freedoms.

Social freedoms can bring more economic prosperity by encouraging innovation, but economic prosperity may be slow in coming. Even if improved economic conditions don't come that easily, a society of greater freedom can still take place. Greater diversity in lifestyles, religion, human rights and free expression doesn't necessarily have to take a lot of natural resources or bring more material wealth, but it's an improvement in quality of life.
