Main Question or Discussion Point

What do you think about this? Are all these uprisings a sign that Muslims are ready for self-determination and will finally enter the world stage, or is this just an opportunity for the next round of corrupt politicians and dictators to grab power? Is democracy even possible in the Muslim world, or is the Middle East and Central Asia doomed to forever be caught in this cycle of dictatorship, militarization, corruption and poverty?

I think it will be a combination of both, a few democracies popping up, a few new dictators and corrupt leaders.

Why would democracy not be possible for a certain group of people?
