Things not going their way within a year. Let's start a "mass" protest and oust the government.
That's definitely how people see it at face value. However, when the President refuses any sort of cooperation with the opposition and labels them thugs, surely it's not a democracy. Over the past year, some people have been living without electricity more than they have with it; the same also applies to running water, that's how frequent the power and water cuts are. Also, all the cities have been paralysed by traffic over the past week because there are fuel shortages and no one can go anywhere. Our car hasn't been used in several days, mostly because there's barely and gas left in it. Furthermore, when the President appoints a member of the Gama'a, the terrorist group that murdered and desecrated the bodies of 60 tourists in 1997, as the governor of Luxor, Egypt's main income-bringer via tourism, surely this is not a proper democracy. I can keep going on and on, like how the Egyptian pound is now nearly worthless, or how citizens are regularly called whores, infidels and spies by MB supported fanatics, or how Morsi is currently a fugitive from the Mubarak days, or how the MB are planning on selling the Suez Canal to Qatar, or how women are blamed when they're raped, or how there hasn't been a functional police force since 2010, or how it now costs twice as much to heat a small house, or how MB members have secretly pleaded with France and the US to invade Egypt to protect Mosri's legitimacy.
This revolution is one of the things that's really hard to judge unless you're there and have been there from the start.
