Repression

Repression

A ghost who dwells in all systems and behaviors!
In governance, work, family, and even the individual in relation to itself!
Where did he come from?!
And how was he able to hit us with such deep roots!?
And how we can adapt ourselves to it and live with him throughout these contracts and at all times!
But we find him holy names and perfect characteristics! As if it is God; The only God that we claim that we do not worship others but him.
Repression
Tree of pains
Roots of sickness
Branches of chaos. Our societies are disorganized in thought, claiming with all boldness they are perfect! And they are the most organized internally among other communities in the world! They are not. When someone asks us: which communities are you talking about? Do you mean Arabic or Muslims?
We are surprised by the question. We still do not know the truth of our societies, though we raised their slogans highly, but sanctified their many idols, in this confusion we believe we are Muslim!
No, it's not the Sykes-Picot agreement which divided the countries in this part of the world and made their people undeveloped as has long been repeated.
But the sultans who had been since the time before the agreement itself
And the whole states, provinces, royal successions and different ways of keeping control!
Perhaps the roots of oppression in societies and mentalities have existed since the era of ignorance.
Some might say: "Every society has diseases, and perhaps everyone else has repression of communities for a long time as well"
But our diseases in particular did not subside!
Our diseases increased even exacerbated
So how are we devoted to this long repression, and using which names?!
How many false and misleading practices do we use on ourselves?
How many impossible lies have we used to strengthen the tools of oppression?
What a big crime?!
What a big crime.
