Kafka about Egyptian president Mursi

Franz Kafka when asked what he thought of the (Russian) Revolution:

"These people are so confident and funny. They are masters of the streets and think they are the masters of the world. They are wrong. (...) The more the flood spreads, the more shallow and turbid becomes the waterThen the revolution
evaporates and leaves just the mud of a new bureaucracy."

(Gustav Janouch:.. Conversations with Kafka, memories and records Frankfurt 1951, p.71)
