What is the issue that occupies the interest of Jordanians today? Postponement of bank installments, what is the issue that occupied them a week ago, for example? The case of stray dogs. Four weeks ago or more? The issue of the Al-Hara movie.. I could go on and on about the interests and preoccupations of Jordanians over the past months. The result is that all these panics, whether in the political, economic, or social and religious fields, are just a “media show” written by an unknown person, and the heroes who jump on The theater is just actors exchanging roles, while the extras chant, and the audience applauds.
We have actually turned into a society of "watching", or the watch has turned into a society. The role we play daily is to watch what is happening, follow its details, and integrate into it, affected by anger or contentment, there is no difference. Jordanians - most of them - have lost the ability to act. Discrimination, and before that they lost a lot of wisdom and positivity. Those responsible for that are “elites” found in these anxious climates fraught with despair and pain, and in those with broken thoughts, as a result of injustice and marginalization, their purpose and goal. The smart businessman, who knows where the shoulder is eaten from.
It is a shame that the remaining sane people in our country are unable to speak, merely to speak, to expose these myths that have clamped down on the “neck” of our society and paralyzed its movement, under the pretext of freedoms or defending people’s rights, or criticizing the performance of state administrations, while the truth is that they are far from These goals and titles.
Who said that preoccupying people with trivial issues, or playing with their feelings to turn them against their country, or drowning them in despair and general blackness, are freedoms and defense of their rights, or heroics that deserve admiration? Who said that mixing the political with the legal, and selecting a grievance over other grievances, then mobilizing in processions to defend it, and consider it a national issue, is in the service of society, and triumphs for the scales of justice?
I am most afraid that we will discover in a moment, as we discovered previously, that those who play a starring role for us, whether in the opposition or in responsible positions in the public administration, are mere “hunters” of opportunities, or that those who are eager to raise ceilings and claims, and flog us every day with criticisms, advice and warnings, Just employees or merchants, their mission ends at the first request or offer, so we must pay attention, and occupy our minds to understand what is going on around us, and what we want to reach.
It is reasonable that “banality” deepens within our society to this extent, it is reasonable that we refuse to listen to the voice of reason, and we are dragged behind the voices of the insane, it is reasonable that we believe everything we hear, and we are unable to say “no” to those who sell us in populist markets, or to those who want us to turn into clapping drums, without knowing why?
There is no difference between an official who sells us illusion, and an opponent who dances on the strings of our wounds for the sake of fame, there is no difference between the voices of hypocrisy that are rented to the privileged in order to obtain interests and privileges, and between the cries of hypocrisy that are spent on some elites that trade in our dreams and demands, in order to pour into their populist funds When society practices this, it falls between the pincers of two layers that are different in locations, but they are similar in roles, coincide in positions, and are complementary in keeping society hostage to corruption, despair and frustration.
Please, O Jordanians, open your eyes, and before that your minds and hearts, to the true image of your country, and to the interests of your state that you have no one else. Arm yourself with enough awareness to distinguish between those who want good for you, and those who do not, between those who try to ride on your backs to reach, And among those who speak in your name with sincerity, wisdom, and honesty, you are the ones with competencies that permeate the whole world, the most capable of foresight, reason, and sorting, and you are the ones who know the facts and expose the falsity of the machinations contrary to what many think, drowning in the illusion of heroism, searching in your good mud for thorns and feelings, to pledge it to care And they set up markets for bidding.
