Whether the trigger event was the self-immolation of Mohamed Abouzizi in Tunisia December 17, 2010 or the earlier wikileaks cables describing Tunisia as run by a mafia-esque elite i or the rap music of Hamada Ben Amor – known as El Général, the Middle-East has irrevocably changed. Dictators in Tunisia and Egypt have been overthrown and the stage has been set for potentially deeper economic and cultural change. As of writing, Libya is now in a civil war, Bahrain's leadership survives through mercenary violence, renting the armed forces of Saudi Arabia, Yemen is in the midst of regime change, while Morocco, Jordan, and last of all Syria, remain uncertain. The start of this change was in Iran, a year back, ii when the rule of Ali Khamenei appeared to be ending. But by using surveillance technologies provided by European corporations, shutting down the internet, bullets and the fascism of the Revolutionary Guards, Khamenei prevailed. The Iranian spring, it appears will need to wait for many more winters. However, if macrohistorians Ibn Khaldun, Pitrim Sorokin and P.R. Sarkar iii are correct, the rot has already set in, and Khamenei's successor will find it far more difficult to keep the youth at bay. A pendulum shift is likely under way away from the religious right in Iran, most likely leading to an integrated modern and ideational society. But before we can speculate on alternative trajectories, we need to ask: what types of revolutionary changes are these? Are they closer to the American, the Iranian, the Yugoslav, or the People's power of the Philippines? Using the approach articulated by macrohistorian, P. R. Sarkar, I analyse the nature of these revolutions and forecast possible futures.
