  1. Lesson to be learned from the French and Russian revolutions, and the recent Manila, Iron Curtain, Beijing, Cairo uprisings -- especially to urban planners: Do NOT provide wide-open spaces like squares and piazzas where the rabble can gather and shout down a ruling clique. Build capital cities with narrow streets where only tanks and armored vehicles can pass. Lay out the streets so that mobs can easily be separated and cornered when they need to be. And that's my revolutionary lesson of the day.
