If the Muslim Brotherhood can institute social reforms they will convince the people that there is in fact a real authority in the country other than just the military. If the people’s demands can be satisfied, or at least an escape valve for their anger made available (economic progress), then Egypt may well become analogous to Pakistan in which there are basically two governments, the ISI and elected politicians; the military would likely wield more control because of its force capabilities and foreign military aid. I’m not sure if that is favorable compared to some type of representative democracy which elected officials are at the helm of the military. After all Pakistan endures a considerable amount of violent domestic terrorism (partly the cause of Pakistan’s involvement in the Global War on Terrorism yes, but that is not the only cause of civil strife within the country). I truly do hope that Egypt can peacefully find its way to authentic and functioning self-governance.
