In the Arab societies all you hear is “In the old days, things were different.. people were different.. society was different.” well I’m not even sure those days existed anymore! We are just so proud of our history and pre-historic achievements that we have managed to recede while every single culture, society, and country evolved as we live off the “In the old days” memories. I’m only 31 and I can actually remember that my younger days were different (not necessarily better)! I’m not addressing a political issue here, I’m addressing the society; I’m addressing how people in here are so angry and unethical all the time!
Our society is constantly in a battle of “Its me or no one”, I understand battling to secure a job, or a position or a raise but why must you battle in everything!!
Driving your cars, getting in the elevator, getting to the cashier, getting papers done, crossing the street, parking space! Damn it people, how hard is it to actually park within the space you need and give someone else a chance to park infront of you!
How hard is it to actually stay in your lane and not block the way if yours is blocked,
How hard is it smile when you are serving someone or answering a question,
How hard is it to do your job like you’re supposed to no extra effort needed just do your job!
How hard is it to respect the differences and choices of others,
How hard is it to say something nice instead of being sickened by the success of others, HOW HARD IS IT TO JUST BE ETHICAL?!
This has nothing to do with the economic situation or the political situation, this is purely people becoming so ignorant and blinded by the battle of survival they feel the need crush everything. It’ unfortunate that I need to write this and the only ones who will read are people who don’t know me, or my society or maybe even my country! and maybe it’s the same elsewhere, I don’t know but this is a truth I’m sure a lot of us acknowledge, ignore and move on; because unfortunately you can fix politics, and you can fix economy, laws even but you can’t fix ethics!
You are taught ethics by family, schools and society! And if all fails…
