A new journey that ended with a "ghost ban".

A new journey that ended with a "ghost ban".
So, I remember why I kept posting here, and I remember exactly why I ran away from my environment.
I also remember why I left this place, went back to my environment, then...got kicked out of it.

Back in the day, I was a normal guy. Your typical Arab Muslim, loved a girl, got ignored, graduated from college, got an M.S diagnosis. I was here all along since 2013..or was it 2014? 8 years.

That's like a generation. I didn't like my environment and from day 1 I said it: this region is going to hell if the natives didn't do any serious reforms. My contributions in AF were mainly to remind the world that we Muslims are "human beings", not all "ISIS" or "Al-Qaeda". And I was right, few years after joining this place ISIS vanished, Al-Qaeda vanished, and the real extreme enemy stormed the American Capitol.

I left AF because I felt that there is no reason for me to keep writing here, better get back to the place I came from and start fixing the environment there. So I came back just like the way I spent with you for years: but on twitter. Tweeting the experience I got from here but in Arabic, targeting the Saudi people.

I began fighting on 2 fronts: against Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims; with more concentration on Sunnies. I got kicked out from a chat room discussing the situation because I refused their method of decision making; I despise obeying a single person and prefer the democratic way of voting and free opinion. They didn't like that. So they kicked me out, even though we were all against the Sauds.

Reports began to rain against me, I didn't make friends because...like in here: I'm not a great social being. Or did they despise my opinion, and saw me like a western-wannabe ? I think it's a mixture of both.

So, that's it. I got banned from twitter. It's quite easy to open a new account but why bother?

And I discovered the same fact I discovered when I came here: Arabs need a long road to learn. And I expect civil wars and terrible doom coming to this region, similar to the French revolution era.

If they couldn't handle my opinion, then how would they handle other opinions? how would they handle a lesbian woman or an Athiest native ? just how?
All I asked for is understanding of democracy or in Arabic "شورى".

So,that's that.

From my understanding, there are fast growing communities throughout the ME and North Africa.

At the moment they have to stay anonymous, but how long before they start talking openly.

I would like to see a revolution in the region. Not a bloody one (the region has seen enough of that), but a popular uprising of people who have had enough of the hardline theocrats.
Sanity adjacent.

Technology brought the people face to face in no time. Saudi people use "Clubhouse", "twitter" and other apps to communicate in such a fast rate, and crazy MBS is giving them the proper content everyday to discuss.

All people got affected by the increasing poverty levels, money became so scarce and prices of goods are sky-rocketing. Even oil became an old fashion today; so poverty and need just pushes everyone to CH and twitter immediately.

The Sauds will fall and they are just harvesting their deeds in the previous years, but I fear what's next. I expect civil war. And there is no oil remaining to stabilize this region anymore.

If the journeys we took to success were easy, everyone would follow in our footsteps.

Keep striving to have your voice heard.

1. The moment you tried debating on twitter you were engaged in a rigged game. Very few public forums online are unbiased and twitter definitely is not, it is for-profit and that means it has to appease the most influential audience or risk losing revenue. It was always going to end this way. You're lucky it did by the way, all it takes is for one of them to dox you.

2. Changing a culture isn't done like that.
It is done by supporting its victims from the shadows, by spotting that person who needs an anonymous helping hand or an encouraging whisper to stay afloat but at the same time continuing to blend. By turning would-be victims into people that culture can't destroy you weaponize them, they're a seed of doubt placed in a crack that'll grow and grow. You probably won't ever see the fruits in your lifetime and you will never be thanked for it but thats a reality you need to come to terms with for the simple reason that its one your opponents can't. They need their will to be done, they need the recognition for getting it done and they need it yesterday. That petulance makes them predictable, easily manipulated and its the only advantage you have. Your words don't need to be screamed to be heard, they only need to be spoken in the softest tones just in the ear shot of someone who is ready to hear them.
Theres a reason christians are so afraid of the image of the serpent in the garden, its because they know they can't silence the truth if they can't see where its being whispered from.

Fuck the Us vs them bullshit. Atlass, in all seriousness, the sane people of the world know that there is no such thing as a utopia. Saying that not all Muslims are terrorists, is the same as saying not all white people are Neo Nazis or KKK members. But, while that is true, religion of all labels worldwide, still produce the tribalism that devides humanity.

I hate the fact that the former guy(president) managed to run and win his one term, and served his one term selling fear. But the "otherism" he sold and briefly one on, is the same "otherism" that controls Saudi Arabia and Iran, and lead to monsters like Hitler and Stalin and Mao and Po Pot. 

But the reality still remains, as imperfect as the west is, it is nowhere close to the oppression of the dictatorships and theocracies in the likes of Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba. There is lots I hate about our right wing here in America. If humans should accept anything above all else, all 7 billion of us are still the same species living on the only home we have.
