Dictators on the run

Thanks to the "Third Industrial Revolution” which according to Joseph Nye is based on rapid technological advances in computers, communications, software",  smart phones, and advanced transportation systems poltical activists world wide are making illegitimate, undemocratic, and corrupt regimes highly uncomfortable and most of the dicators like Ben Ali of Tunisia, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Gaddafi of Libya are on the run. Countless anti-democratic governments in the Middle East have been forced to think twice and many have began to implement policies that will benefit their citizens.

That is how virtual power has done to our world.
