Civil meen wil nas naymeen
For years now, our talks shows have been a مهزلة. Why? Because we don't understand what "discussion" and "dialog" are. All we have are impoliteness w ولاد شارع! w la22ileh 3al mafra2 (meet me on the street so we can fight), w sermeyte artab min rassak (my shoe has more dignity than yourself), w bayye a2wa min bayyak (my daddy is stronger than your daddy). These are expression people who cannot communicate verbally, revert to. Because they are weak, and they rely on violence to "solve" things. This has become our culture in Lebanon, we are not people of the mind, we are people of the physical, we cannot solve anything anymore in a civil manner.
Blame the media
If our media promotes unhealthy/impolite dialog just to get more TV rates, then what do we exactly expect our people to turn out to be? These are the examples to which our generation are being exposed to. A narcissistic generation in general, who has empathy written all over its forehead.
The video that's going viral
Ladies and gentleman, our hope is being killed by the previous generation, by our generation and it will totally be "finished" by the time the next generation takes over. If you haven't lost hope yet, please see this video (that had more than 40,000 in less than 12 hours) of the show Bi Mawdou3iye on MTV Lebanon hosted by Walid Abboud, with the "guests" Fayes Shokr and Moustapha Alloush, unfortunately the comments have been removed and disabled for you to see, because if you were to see the amount of swearing and hatred in these comments, you would have realized how horrid the division that we have in Lebanon is and how SAD our country is.
And for who? For Bashar El Assad?
Final note is, sadly, all this LIVE and on AIR fight, happened for a president of another country. They didn't even fight for a local issue.
شي بيرفع الراس
p.s. the expression of terror on Walid Abboud's face, is exactly how we should all be feeling towards where this country is heading if we don't do something about it.
