I was meeting a friend (let us call him “A”) last night that I have not seen for a couple of months, so as we were driving in the car, discussing current events, he looked at me and said:

A:I’m sure you follow current events as much as I do


A: haven’t you noticed how in every conversation that comes up, there are 3 words that are being used interchangeably regardless of the issue?

O: And what are they?

A: Freedom, Democracy, and Terror. For example the media ask a question about WMD’s and all you could hear is blah,blah,blah, freedom, blah,blah,blah,blah, democracy, blah,blah,blah,blah terrorism.
Or another example for instance about AbuGhraib, the sound coming out of the politicians is blah,blah,blah, democracy, blah,blah,blah,blah, terrorism, blah,blah,blah,blah freedom.

He added that people are being brainwashed and cowed into over simplification of issues.

O: Surely all the words mentioned by you are important to us in the Middle East, and we can’t compromise on them. For example, Alqaeda is more of danger to us than they are to the west. While they are willing to compromise with the west (Spain as an example), the only compromise they will offer us is a total change in our way of life to adhere to their edicts, or our head gets chopped off.

A: That’s true, and I’m not disputing that we need those ideals in our societies, to have a better life to everyone.

But, I’m talking about western politicians over here; they mention those words on any occasion, while on the other hand they have allies such as the president of Uzbekistan, who boils political opponents, and conveniently forget to remind him of his human rights abuses, so why not have a universal standards applied to everyone instead of being selective about it?

O: Smiling and shaking my head knowing where this conversation going to lead, I reply

“blah,blah,blah, democracy, blah,blah,blah,blah, terrorism, blah,blah,blah,blah freedom.”
