[liberationtech] "Not Everyone Makes It To Freedom" -- Toomas Ilves

I share the link to the Washington Post report on  Estonian President Toomas
Ilves' understanding of why democratic transition was successful in Estonia
and why it may fail elsewhere.  Ilves was (unmentioned by Diehl) director of
the RFE/RL Estonian Service 1988-1993.  Then, his own broadcast telephone
interviews with independent and opposition figures in Estonia were a
megaphone that contributed to making the old status quo unsustainable.
