Solving the collective action problem

Many Egyptians protested their government, but they were not usually more than one million (there were 600,000 members of a protest group on facebook). At least 302 of them were killed by government forces.

Now over 80 million Egyptians are free of an incompetent, corrupt government. They should thank their vocal minority for standing up for everyone, and I do too.

Bottom Line: The same can be said about water management. If it's unfair, inefficient or unsustainable, then go protest. A few people can have a big impact.
