Lebanese Blogosphere: In Danger
Fellow bloggers at the Ouwet Front have run into some controversial trouble.
Mark’s post states, he has received an email through a chap, by the direct authority of Dr. Samir Geagea, stating he should shut the Ouwet Front blog, and subscribe to the authority of a mono-centered website which feeds news.
The dispute quickly spread into the Lebanese blogosphere once the post came out.
While many operators try to subscribe to a 4 digit number in order to receive constant, updated ‘political’ news to their mobiles, gives validity to one authority; and you have to pay for it, giving that one authority, value.
Now, while Mark, knows very well the implications of the internet on the future of our information feeds, replies with a chain of emails defending his stance in giving his opinion.
I admit, if I feel lenient to any ideology and tend to be politically inclined to a person, movement, party, sect; I would still reserve personal opinions and thoughts. This would create the elexir of inovation. We need groups, so as to be able to know who’s out of it. To every In group, there is an out group. Thats why the Lebanese Inner Circle, needs its outter circle.
Society needs trend setters, and followers. In groups and out groups, one idea and the other, So each one would know what they would mean! We need contrast to know what are the extremities. Taoists certainly know this.
I would only wish we give true value to those who root for a constructive, educational and enlightened era.
