The old man and the revolution

This is the incredible story of a true senex – a wise, old man – who wrote the guidebook to topple autocrats in a nonviolent revolution. Gene Sharp’s“From Dictatorship to Democracy”, has inspired dissidents around the world, including Burma, Bosnia, Estonia, Zimbabwe and now Tunesia and Egypt.

Gene Sharp is an 82 years old  political thinker, whose work delivered the means and tactics to bring down a dictatorship. Mr. Sharp founded the Albert Einstein Institute in 1983, which holds his work and many resources on strategic, nonviolent conflict.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
