Sail Al-Kafiri writes: Hate speech from within (3)

The tributaries of hate speech in the contemporary world:
1- The educational system as a competitive, hierarchical and market-related system in its ultimate policy of supply and demand to which scientific and human competencies as commodities are subjected This causes unconscious or conscious bottlenecks caused by individual differences that must be emptied and the individual finds his stray in subjects he hates to get rid of those bottlenecks, This is consistent with the educational system’s focus on science, directly useful knowledge and quick financial rewards, and does not pay sufficient attention to the spiritual humanitarian meditating aspect. In this sense, Eric Froome says in his book The Art of Love:
(It is clear that for a person to have a healthy and loving sensitivity to himself, he must have a picture of full and healthy human performance; How can a person have such experience if he does not have it in childhood or later in life? There is certainly no easy answer to this question, but the question indicates a very necessary critical pause towards our education system (* 3).

(* 3. Eric Fromm- Art of Love – P.105 – Dar Al Awda – Beirut– Second Edition – Translation by Mujahid Abdul Moneim Mujahid.).

In developing or late countries, the educational system, in addition to the above, adopts cruelty, injustice and violence, and disregards the personal reinforcement factors of children and young people in general under difficult and sometimes catastrophic economic and social conditions.

2- Cracked democracy: This is reflected in the nature of the world’s electoral system, where someone like Einstein is equal before the ballot box with an individual who is unaware of what he is about in political and life matters in general. The majority’s decision is precisely here, and within this context; As a majority decision, it is taken as an argument to confirm its validity and this is clearly a mistake and, speaking from a historical point of view, all the right ideas in politics and also in philosophy, religion or science, were originally minority ideas, and judging the value of any idea on the basis of numbers, we have stayed in the caves until now.) * – Eric Froome – previously mentioned – p. 466.

And then in the nature of government systems and ways of accessing them that allow someone like Trump to lead the world’s greatest nation, and on behalf of tens of thousands of American intellectuals, creators and philosophers to determine their fate. The intellectual, artistic, cultural and creative dependence in general of the dominant politics and the dominant economy; catastrophe “, as well as the dependence of an informed minority on an ignorant majority; catastrophe. The absolute majority’s reliance on a central economic minority only sees its interests, even if this leads to the scourge of the planet; catastrophe.

In many lagging, third-world or even industrialized countries such as North Korea, we can replace the phrase “cracked democracy” with the phrase “non-existent democracy”.

3- Religious discourse: Because he simply sees his followers as those chosen by God, while others live in misfortune. The seriousness of the situation varies from the other, from religion to religion, such as pity, severance, ostracization, demonization or even murder, as in the Khomeini advisory opinion of 14 February 1989, by spilling Salman Rushdie’blood, a well-known writer, and granting a $3 million reward for his killing.

4- The global economic system: It is within a single nation based on competition, speculation, hierarchy and income inequality, generalizing consumption values, creating fake needs for further consumption and depleting human effort. Internationally, competition may amount to war, impoverishment and starvation of entire peoples in full view of the world.

5- Negative stereotyping rhetoric towards minorities and ethnic groups in cultures prevailing in societies in general, and associated with the absence or weakness of social, political and legal justice in general.

6- The information revolution and the rapid dissemination of information, particularly through the media, in conjunction with the unclear legislation on hate speech, the strict control of its terms and consensus on its definitions and the involvement of a specialized cultural and intellectual cadre. This causes a confusion between legitimate and necessary freedom of expression for public human dialogue, on the one hand, and rhetoric of incitement to violence, abolition and subjectivity in the perception of issues before the public, on the other, and interference in States’ national sovereignty in putting forward their orientation on a third hand.

7- The tendency of the world’s authoritarian and dictatorial systems to invest in traditional media and its other categories and to spend billions of dollars for its own Barboganda industry, accompanied by the attack on freedoms and democracy, the rise of the far right in the West, the refugee crisis and the rise of Islamophobia. Here, public officials must be obliged to denounce intolerance and racism, especially when they come from members of their own political party, and Governments must be civil society partners and religious, social and media leaders in initiating a permanent dialogue to determine what real (abuse) is.

8. The Syrian crisis and its consequences: The Syrian crisis in its depth, consequences, multilateralism and persistence outweighed all the crises that occurred in the world after the end of the Second World War, including the fastest massacre in history in Rwanda, where some 800 thousand people were killed in 40 days.
They may amount to a global war in terms of investment and participation by the great Powers and their respective allies from the rest of the Arab, regional and international countries, or rise to the level of the eastern crisis when the great Powers decided at the beginning of the twentieth century to share the legacy of the sick man. (Turkey) at the time, putting an end to the Ottoman Empire and drawing the world map back irreversibly.

Regardless of its causes and divergence of views, there was a mix between political, economic, ideological, cultural, religious, sectarian, ethnic, local, regional and global. It’s really a sea of details. At it’s end, she is an identity of the current world as a spiteful, competitive and hatred world, and a shining proof that he is a world that is never okay. With its complexities and repercussions, it has been a breeding ground for the spread of hate speech in the local, Arab, regional and international media among all parties to the conflict, and its expression on the ground in words and in fact. Since 2011, the use of hate speech, incitement to violence and terrorism, sectarianism, discrimination against women and marginalized groups has increased in all Syrian media.
