Harlem Shake world protests

ARAB SPRING, MEET HARLEM SHAKE: "If I can't dance," American radical Emma Goldman famously declared, "I don't want to be part of your revolution." Democracy-hungry youth in Egypt and Tunisia are apparently taking this belief to heart. CNN's Fareed Zakaria reports that kids in those countries, where mass protest unseated prior autocrats but new kinds of repression have emerged, are posting videos of themselves capering to the Baauer smash "Harlem Shake" as an expression of defiance. Several students were arrested in Egypt recently for staging one such mass dance in front of the Muslim Brotherhood's offices; authorities seem to be fearful that the "Harlem Shake" represents a threat to their power. "Who says America's popular culture exports have no value?" Zakaria asks. Um, was somebody actually saying that? (3/6p)
