A quick visit to Cairo was enough to blacken my memories about the city that witnessed most of my early 30 years.. Being grateful for both attchement or lessons I had learned there; was not enough to replace my realization with the common anesthesia spreading all over the country and the nation..
A friend of mine welcomed me saying: welcome to the zoo..!!
Another stated that there is no will to bring quality or reliability to any aspect of the Egyptian life..!!
Browsing TV and newspapers was enough to feel the mightiness of the Media Community that flips all realities and turns all false into confirmed state that the people unconsciously recite.. It is a phenomenon that started once the State-Media was developed at Nasser’s times, and got enhanced by the outspoken Sadat, and then evolved into an unbeatable monster with the ailing yet holding Mubarak..
Corporate-Egypt masters all the keys for wealth and powers, with strong alliance with the Media Community.. Hunting wealth and exercising all applications for such a goal or benefiting from it; is all legitimate in the street culture.. Everything becomes a commodity for trading, regardless whatsoever value it includes.. Religion is reduced from path of salvation into another for facilitation.. Science is no more a way-finding towards development and welfare, but a route for the inevitably smart ones to earn more dollars and recognition.. A PhD Researcher once described to me the magic of the letter “D” in front of any name..!! Bottom-line, all vocabularies, concepts and theories are subject to timely and continuously modified definitions.. It is a state of organized anarchy run by a JV includes Corporate-Egypt, Egyptian Politicians and their Media Community..
In today’s Egypt; gated-communities are syndromes, as well as headscarf with sexy- tight jeans..!!
In today's Cairo; an outstanding urban chaos that set loose by public servants..!!
This was Egypt as promoted by the mighty community of Egyptian media; yet below is the concurrent true Egypt as a unique state of cultural anarchy and unmatched national chaos that puts down all sincere efforts of reconciliation or reform..!!
I feel lots of pitty for the Egyptian people... Not because I do share portions of their blood, but because they were and still a magnifying mirror of the world...!!
They represent the histories, the struggles, the morals and the fallen ethics of our global civilization..
This is what had given them leading position.. yet would denounce it from them..!!
Maybe it is already done..!!
