Armenia: Apathy or revolution?

Footprints compares the situation in Armenia with that in Egypt, but says that despite the problems it is unlikely a similar uprising will occur. In particular, the blog blames apathy among the youth and a fractured opposition.

    it has nothing to do with apathy or fractured opposition, this is all about emigration.
    there is one major difference between Armenia and Egypt:
    In Egypt two thirds of the populations are under 30,
    in Armenia two thirds of the population are middle aged and older people.
    This is not because Armenians are not reproducing, they have more kids than almost any other ethnic group in Europe, but the problem is that most young people chose to emigrate rather than to stand up for their rights.
