Description

This lecture will challenge the belief that the Arab Spring uprisings and associated changes represent good against the evil of the overthrown regimes. There are elements of evil among the forces for change and their allies, and elements of good and evil among the countries offering support for the regime changes. There are arguably some small sparks of good among the regime forces that we may overlook. Thus, this talk argues we should not view the events of the Arab Spring as entirely black or white.
