Philip K. Dick on Israel

philip_k_dick_28198

This is a letter Philip K. Dick wrote in response to Israel’s bombing of the Osirak reactor in Iraq in 1981. It’s worth reading these days because, as with his science fiction, PKD remains prophetic….

Philip K. Dick is, arguably, the science fiction author, and the mind behind such movies as Blade Runner, Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau, and many others.

The letter is fascinating in many regards; for a start PKD’s approach is well thought out, in his first paragraph he outlines the logical problems inherent in Israel’s attack on Osirak. In the second, he discusses the state of mind that leads to such paranoia, and in the third, he warns Israel, and insinuates that they are possessed by the memory of a madman…

Read on -

(From ‘The Selected Letters of Philip K. Dick 1980-82′)…

Dear Ron Hendren,

Regarding Israel’s pre-emptive air strike on the Iraqi nuclear power plant I see several objections to the P.M.’s position. Israel’s government should have been prepared to offer substantial proof that weapons were in fact going to be produced at the reactor site. This proof should have been presented at today’s news conference, since Israel would have anticipated long in advance the adverse world opinion. Does this mean that Israel has no substantial proof? The burden of proof is on Israel, not on Iraq; this is, Iraq does not have to prove that it was not going to produce weapons; Israel must prove that it was. Second: Israel’s P.M. has stated that if Iraq rebuils the power plant Israel will destroy it again, but the P.M. did not say “if it appears that the plant will be converted to weapons production”; does this mean that Israel regards any nuclear power plant in an Arab country a threat, even if international regulatory agencies monitor and inspect the plant regularly? Third: why was the air strike conducted one day before the six-month inspection was to take place? On the Monday following the air strike it would have been possible for the international regulatory agency to have ascertained if in fact there had been – or was planned – a diversion toward weapons production. Fourth: Israel’s P.M. pointed out that once the plant was hot were it to be bombed many thousands of Iraqi citizens would have died from the radioactive fall-out; in that case, by possessing a nuclear power plant, Iraq was making itself incredibly vulnerable to destruction from the air – titanic destruction; possession of the plant, then, would be a two-edged sword. It could possibly be diverted to weapons production but it de facto was a time bomb situated near Baghdad. The actual military advantage, it would seem, lay with Iraq’s enemy, Israel. How could Iraq possibly attack Israel under such circumstances?

The fallacy of the argument in favor of pre-emptive war is that it assumes knowledge of the motives and intentions of other countries. It was a primary contention of Nazi Germany that a ring of enemies surrounded it, justifying (at least in the eyes of the Germans) pre-emptive war. By this same argument, the U.S. should have attacked the Soviet Union before the U.S.S.R. developed the A-bomb and certainly before it had the H-bomb. And in fact this argument was advanced in the late Forties. I am a Quaker and I deplore military “solutions.” The premise here seems to be that Arabs are unstable people who cannot be trusted. They should not have nuclear power plants because they will sneakily find a way to divert plutonium to weapons production despite all efforts at oversight and regulation. Now, it is the opinion of U.S. intelligence that Israel possesses nuclear weapons, and would have used them in the last war had the war gone against them. (In fact the U.S. is said to maintain constant tracking of the deployment of Israel’s nuclear strike force by means of observation satellites.) What Sunday’s air strike really boils down to – and I think you pointed to this in your commentary today, but perhaps only by implication – is that the balance of power in the Middle East must be kept in Israel’s favor in terms of nuclear weapons, since Israel is one small country surrounded by many hostile Arab countries. But it is Israel’s tragedy if she alienates world opinion and finds herself standing alone; she will have engineered the very thing she fears and suspects: an implacable, hostile ring around her, much as Germany experienced after World War One. The problem with paranoia in individuals and in nations is that it brings about the exact conditions that it suspects; paranoia is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Israel must not taunt the world with the fact that she is militarily capable of destroying any and all nations who might attack her because there is always the chance that this boast will be tested precisely because it is made.

Israel’s best chance for survival lie in the goodwill of the international community, not on sophisticated American weapons, plus Israel’s own nuclear capability. Military power is not, in the final analysis, the answer to Israel’s problems any more than it is the answer to ours or the Soviet Union’s. International cooperation is the answer in this global village we inhabit. Israel expresses a reactionary stance that would, perhaps, have made sense three thousand years ago. Those days are gone. Unless Israel can accept the existence of the Arab people as her neighbors she will by fighting pull her own self down, as many nations have done before her. There is a wonderful thrill in pre-emptive military strikes utilizing the most advanced weapons the world has to offer, and this thrill drove the Third Reich to horrible ruin, and, with her, much of the world. It was Hitler’s theory that the ultimate victory of fascism was that it would compel its enemies to imitate it, to become what it itself was. The ghost of that madman inhabits the taunts proffered the world by Israel’s P.M., and this is tragic indeed.

Cordially,

Philip K. Dick,

June 9, 1981

Call To Journalists Worldwide…

sps

I understand and appreciate your attempt to free your colleagues who get arrested by brutal regimes, and subjected to draconian and ridiculous kangaroo courts, and I applaud your efforts to publicize this issue, however, I think you can do a lot more and I am writing this message explicitly so you can not claim to not have had a better idea.

It’s not enough to tweet photos of yourselves with your mouths taped up, nor is it enough to hold up pieces of paper on which you’ve written hashtags intended to draw attention to your plight or that of your fellow journalists. I believe you have to take a far more radical approach.

Stop.

Just stop. When you’re asked to write your newest column, write only these twenty words – “I refuse to report so long as my colleagues cannot. This column will remain silent until my colleagues are free.” and nothing else. Substitute the word ‘column’ with ‘show’, ‘article’, ‘segment’, etc – depending on your medium, whether it’s a newspaper, a TV show, a website, etc -

Make people outside of Twitter and Facebook get the message, show them the real force of your solidarity, and impose an embargo on both viewers and governments that do not realize the magnitude of oppression that your colleagues suffer. Force everybody to adopt the issue, and make it their own, force the issue into everyday conversation, and force the urgency on people outside of the journalistic profession. This is not a local issue, this is not even a national issue, this is a global issue, and it’s one of integrity, honesty, and truth. Journalists worldwide feel very strongly when one of them suffers injustice just for doing his job, commit yourself to that feeling, and take it the logical conclusion. Force the issue.

Good luck.

Imagine…

hands-in-chains

Imagine that your country was run by a corporation. Now imagine this corporation has managed to take over at least a third of the country’s assets. Imagine if this corporation enacted laws that allowed it to enlist most of the young men in the country as slave labor, getting paid peanuts, and having to work all day, sometimes in productive jobs, and sometimes sending men to do nothing more than smoke cigarettes as they stood in a deserted spot of land. Imagine that this corporation was run by a cabal of business men who were above all the laws, and subject to none of them – so that they were not held accountable to the country or to its laws. Imagine further that this corporation could not only ignore the law, but could actually change laws to suit itself. Imagine if this corporation was not only exempt from taxes, but was actually partly funded by taxes, and received further funding from foreign countries, all on top of the profit that it makes from its businesses selling gasoline, water, pasta, cheeses, and various foodstuff. Imagine that these profits are made at almost no cost to the corporation since the labor, as we said before, was basically slave labor. Imagine that this corporation not only controlled the law in a country, but also had the power to tailor the constitution so that all the citizens of the country were subject to the laws of the corporation, whereas those employed by the corporation were subject only to the laws of the corporation, and to its board of directors. Imagine if this corporation could kill anybody that it chose to, imprison anybody that it chose to, direct the media as it saw fit, destroy any media that it didn’t approve of, ban any writers that it didn’t like, and it could do all of this with complete impunity. Now imagine that this corporation was not only immune to the law, but in actual control of the judiciary, and could impose sentences simply by lifting up the phone, and giving directives to judges, telling them exactly what kind of verdicts it wanted to see in any cases that piqued its interest. Imagine further that this corporation had greater powers than the president himself, but that, just to be sure, it chose to install as president one of its own, who continues to serve it’s interests. Imagine that this corporation held an absolute monopoly on the use of heavy weapons in the country, and that, just to be sure, it employed the police force as it’s first line of defense, since, as a matter of public relations, it chose not to get its own hands ‘dirty’ when that could be avoided. Are you starting to realize that you really don’t have to use your imagination at all?

Welcome to Egypt.

The Colors of Fascism

107-0910163325-smoking-fascism (Custom)

You have to remember, fascism is not a specific color, but an attitude, and all colors, once they seek to impose themselves, can become fascist. This is why you have red fascists, and blue fascists, and green fascists, and purple fascists, and all other kinds, and this is why people get confused sometimes…think somebody is a friend when, in fact, they turn out to be an enemy. If you are red, and fighting green, all the red fascists come to your aid, and call you heroes, but when you battle red fascism, suddenly you are called traitors. When you turn to fight off the red fascists, all the green fascists think themselves allies, they want to come to your aid! Surely you are part of their ‘green’ revolution! But you are no such thing, you are simply fighting off fascists of all colors, because in the end, fascism deprives all colors of taste, whether you want to think of the result as white or black, the fact is that all fascism results in a bland uniformity, all fascism desires a blank uniformity, a conformity of taste, of opinion, of choice, of view. It is the murder of the individual, it is the state as ultimate vampire, feeding off the blood of the population rather than enriching the lives of its citizens. It is the death knell of freedom, and of choice, and of all other colors. It is oppression.

الفاشية و ألوانها

107-0910163325-smoking-fascism (Custom)

حاجة بننساها كتير، بس لازم ندركها دائما – الفاشية مش لون محدد، وإنما أسلوب – و كل الألوان – طالما بتتبنى فكرة إنها لها الحق تفرض نفسها – بتميل في الأخر الى الفاشية. علشان كده في فاشي أحمر، و فاشي أزرق و فاشي برتقالي و فاشي بمبي – وكل الألوان في منها الفاشي. علشان كده ساعات الناس بتتلغبط – و ساعات تكون انت مثلاً احمر و بتحارب الفاشية الخضراء، تلاقي الفاشيين الحمر معتبرينك بطل وشجاع ويقفوا وراك و يصقفولك و يشجعوك – إنما لما تييجي بعدعها تحارب الفاشية الحمراء تلاقيهم معتبرينك عدو وفاكرينك أكيد تبع الخضر مثلاً. واقع الأمر انك انت نفسك لم تتغير، بتحب الحرية و بتحارب الفاشية مهما كانت لونها – إنما هما (لانهم فاشيين) مش فاهمين كده. عاوزين ولائك يكون للون معين، مش فاهمين ان الدينا محتاجة الوان كتير و تبقى فقيرة منغيرهم. في الأخر الفاشية – مهما كان لونها بتميل للتوحد و التوحيد – و ممكن تعتبر ده غياب للألوان – في ناس بتعتبره بياض و في ناس بتعتبره سواد – انما الخلاصة انه كله زي بعضه، مالوش طعم ولا لون، ولا يسمح بالتعدد ولا بالإختلاف – ولا في الذوق ولا في الطعم ولا في الفكر ولا في المنظور. الفاشية تقتل الشخص و الشخصية، و هي تجسد الدولة في إطار طفيلي – فتعيش بأن تمتص دماء المواطنين بدلاً من ان تعطيهم الحياة و الحرية و الرخاء. الفاشية هي مقصلة الحرية و الإختيار وتقتل جميع الألوان في النهاية – الفاشية هي القمع.

The Alternatives You Ignored

A few points need to be made here.

First of all, I find it at least a bit strange when people refer to me as part of a ‘you’ that they call the ‘opposition’ and then tell me that this ‘we’ was supposed to create a coalition, and that since we have ‘offered none’ – I therefore have no right to ‘complain’.

I am, a video producer, a photographer, a graphic designer, a writer, and a musician. I am not, nor have I ever been, a politician. If I protested, it was not for a political party or a political ideology, when I write, it’s not for a party or an ideology, and the only ‘entity’ with which I’ve had any kind of regular attachment is the No Military Trials for Civilians group, of whose work I am very proud and by whose other members I am constantly humbled. My interest in the revolution from Day 1 has been, and continues to be, purely humane. I am not in need, mostly because I have few needs – but I am painfully aware of how many people suffer in Egypt, and that most of those suffer unjustly.

I went down on Jan 25th for the same reasons I went down to protest with Cairo University students when they were protesting Israel’s attack on Jenin back in 2001/2, and I protested in Tahrir Square a year later when the USA was about to launch it’s all out attack (Shock & Awe they called it..) on Iraq. In all those cases I didn’t protest FOR a politician or a political party, or a political ideology – I protested against an injustice, against criminal acts and against criminal regimes. So again, when you, the accuser, say ‘you’ – I have no idea who you’re referring to, unless you’re referring to the very amorphous creature journalists and politicians like to call, without a hint of nuance, ‘the opposition’ – it’s a label that lacks all cohesion because who the opposition is shifts depending on shifting alliances between those in power at any given time. When the MB appeared to be in power, YOU, I assume, would have, by your definition, counted as ‘opposition’. Should I take that to mean that you have formed a coalition? If that’s the case, should I hold you responsible for all the ills that the regime has perpetrated since Morsi was removed? I reserve the right to fight injustice, and do not take that to automatically mean that I am somehow responsible for providing the people with a better choice. I am simply one other guy eating in the restaurant, I am not the chef, nor have I ever wanted to be one.

However, if you’re asking me to divine why people have ‘decided’ that no choices have been presented, I can hazard a few guesses – first of all, many ‘opposition’ or ‘revolutionary’ movements HAVE indeed come up with different scenarios throughout the revolution, I was among those, who suggested since before Mubarak was finally removed, and all the way until the run-off elections between Morsi & Shafiq, that the only way to get past the Military Dictatorship was to forget about the elections, and to form a Civil Council comprising most of the candidates, have that council for an interim period and have the constitution written within that period, followed by proper elections. ANY such notion was immediately dismissed, and barely given any air-time, and similar suggestions were actually mocked by SCAF on TV. Otherwise, many human rights organizations came up with plans, for example, for restructuring the police force and the ministry of the interior, so that it becomes accountable, answerable to the law, and actually fills a role in which they, amazingly enough, serve the people. NONE of these suggestions have been taken, listened to, or applied.

6854057123_77aa24c74f_z (Custom)

If the media has not made you aware of the many suggestions and options that have been proposed throughout not only the last year, but throughout the last few years, that is not the fault of the amorphous collective you’re referring to, but of a collusion between the regime and the media, to always make you believe that you have no other choices than the one THEY present you with. 

As for the elections, you insist that they are ‘legal’. Well…them being legal is certainly open to dispute, not only because of the 3rd day extension, which can be attacked legally on several grounds (first of all, you don’t change election law MID-ELECTIONS, and second, a law is only formally a ‘law’ when it’s printed in the Official Journal, and since it was NOT printed except by the 3rd day of elections, then the 2nd day decision to ‘extend’ was, literally, illegal) – but also on many other grounds; the Sisi campaign, by any measure, seems to have gone completely over their legally allowed budget, the media was heavily and undoubtedly biased towards Sisi, Sisi’s campaign is technically guilty of bribery because of the 300,000 power-saving bulbs they ‘distributed’, Hamdein’s representatives were arrested in many governerates, and nobody I know – including a whole bunch of photographers who saw LOTS of polling station – believes the magical turnout figure of 25 million voters. I won’t hold as evidence other things, like videos clearly showing military personal marking ballots for Sisi en masse, because it can be argued that those videos are fake, and I have no way to prove otherwise.

I would also add that something may be ‘legal’ but wrong, such as the Protest Law, which is quite simply unconstitutional. If you doubt my words, please examine the terminological swindle that occurs between Article 8 and Article 10 of said law.

Otherwise, another reason for your impression that we had no options was El-Sisi’s very conscious, very deliberate sabotage of the whole political process. I said, way back in November 2013, that by refusing to answer the question about whether or not he’s going to run for the presidency when he gave his first big interview in Al MasryAl Youm, El-Sisi had effectively sabotaged an entire political process that was supposed to take place and last all the way from November and right up last week. Had El-Sisi done what almost everybody wanted him to do (including many, if not most, of those who voted for him), and simply said he would not run; the focus for the last six months would not have been on whether or not (or when) Sisi will decide to run, but rather on many non-military candidates who would’ve have come to the table, and offered themselves to the people.

We would’ve met tens of names, and slowly over the last 6 months, we would have seen real debates, and a filtering process would’ve taken place, with some candidates becoming popular and gaining support, and others being left on the way side. NONE of this happened, and it was because El-Sisi decided to create a political fog, effectively ‘reserving’ the presidential seat for himself.

Could somebody else, other than Hamdein have decided to run anyway? Sure. Would he have had any reason to believe the elections would be honest or fair? None whatsoever, not while the regime has Adly Mansour making up whatever laws they desire at the drop of a hat. 

I hope at least some of what I’ve written proves useful or explanatory…and helps you to understand why so many of your friends or sons or daughters are unhappy with the way things are going.

Thank you for taking the time to read this note.

ماذا تتوقعون؟

10390345_10154193734165444_145594755800168153_n (Custom)

ما رأيناه من ميرفت التلاوي في ندوة القومي لحقوق المرأة لا يختلف تماما عن ما رأيناه من عبد الحليم قنديل في لقائه مع متحدث حزب مصر الثوية – و هو في واقع الأمر لا يختلف أيضا عن مشهد الإمرأة التي راينا لها صورة و هي تلف قبضتها في كف يدها الأخرى لكي تقول للمشاهد ان “يموت بغيظه” كما كان يقول بعض أعضاء الإخوان المسلمين عندما إنتصر مرسي في الإنتخابات و إعتقدوا ان العالم أصبح لهم…

تعددت الأفعال و لكنها كلها ذات طابع واحد – و كلها تنبع من نفس الإنحطاط الأخلاقي والسذاجة السياسية التي إن توقعناها من إمرأة “سيساوية” تخرج من لجنة إنتخابات – لا يعُقل ابداً ان نتوقعها من كاتب كان له إحترام في يوم من الأيام ومن مسؤلة رسمية في ندوة لمجلس “قومي” حقوقي.

ماذا تتوقعون؟ فلقد قررتم ان تنتخبوا رجل وعد انه سيقضى على الإخوان – و عندما سُئل كيف سيفعل ذلك، حرك يده بنرجسية مبهرة و قال “كده!”، وهذا الرد إن دل على شئ فهو جهل سياسي وإجتماعي قد تستطيع تجاهله في وزير دفاع – ولكن غير الممكن إعتباره رد ناضج من رجل يطمح في أعلى المناصب “السياسية” في مصر….

ماذا تتوقعون؟ تدعون انكم كنتم تفضلون للسيسي ان لا يرشح نفسه، و لكنكم ذهبتم لتنتخبوه حال ترشحه. ماذا حدث لأسبابكم (العاقلة) التي جعلتكم تفضلون الا يرشح نفسه؟ هل إختفت؟ تلاشت؟ ام نسيتموها لأنكم صدقتم ان ليس في مصر إلا رجل واحد؟

ماذا تتوقعون؟ هل تتوقعون ان طرد بعثة الإتحاد الاوروبي “شطارة”؟ هل تعتقدون انكم قد إنتصرتم في معركة ما؟ ضد من؟ طردوهم من الندوة و هم يقولون “نحن الفائزون و أنتم الخاسرون!” و كأننا نشاهد دورة كرة قدم بين أطفال (غير مهذبين) في إحدى الحضانات. من أطراف هذه المعركة التي تعتقدون انكم إنتصرتم فيها؟ هل كنتم تحاربون الإتحاد الأوروبي؟ هل أكل كلام الإعلام عن المؤامرات الدولة عقولكم لهذه الدرجة؟

لقد قرأت تقريرين عن الإنتخابات – إحداهم من الإتحاد الأوروبي و الأخر من منظمة أمريكية – وفي واقع الأمر – كان إنتقاد الإتحاد الاوروبي للإنتخابات “ناعم” بالمقارنة مع تقرير المنظمة الأمريكية – ولكن رد فعلكم هو شتيمة و طرد بعض الحقوقيين الأوروبيين من ندوة عن حقوق المرأة!؟ هل السيسي إمرأة و قد هددوا حقوقه؟ كيف تتوارد لكم الأفكار؟ و من أين؟

و إذا كان هذا رد فعلك للأوروبيين، فماذا سيكون رد فعلكم للأمريكان؟ هل ستواجهوا المؤامرة “الأمريكية الصهيونية الإخوانية” بأن ترفضوا (مثلاً) المعونة الأمريكية التي تذهب مباشرة الى القوات المسلحة؟ ام هل تعتبرون القوات المسلحة جزء من هذه المؤامرة؟ هل سترفضون الأسلحة و الذخيرة وطائرات الأباتشي؟ هل ستخرجون ألسنتكم اليهم و تقولون “نحن الفائزون و أنتم الخاسرون”…؟

و إن فعلتم – ولنفرض انهم هم أيضاً أطفال في حوش الحضانة – مع من ستلعبون غداً؟

و ماذا تتوقعون في الجانب السياحي؟ هل لا تدري ان خبر (وأسلوب) طرد البعثة الأوروبية لن يصل الي الإعلام الغربي؟ هل تعتقدون ان الطرد سيترك إنطباع يشجع السائح الأجنبي على زيارة مصر؟ هل فكرتم في ذلك ونتم تدورون قبضتكم في كف يديكم و تقولون “موتوا بغيظكم”؟ أم هل تريدون ان تعتمدوا تماماً و كليتاً على المعونات السعودية و الإماراتيه و التي نعلم جميعاً ان لها ثمن – و هو توظيف الجيش المصري كبودي جارد (حارس خاص) لهذه الدول؟ هل هذا ما تريدون؟

من اين جاء هذا السلوك؟ هل ترون ان هذه هي ديموقراطية السيسي؟ هل هذه هي الديبلوماسية الجديدة؟ هل دفعتكم رؤيتكم للسيسي ك”رجل قوي” لمحاولة ان تكونوا “رجالاً” اقوياء؟ و هل تعتقدون ان هذه هي القوة؟ أن تطرد الزائر الأجنبي بهذا المنظر المشين؟ و ان تجلس في لقاء تلفزيوني امام ممثل من حزب تختلف معه في الرأي و تسبه بألفاظ رخيصة بينما هو لم يغلط بحرف واحد و كان في منتهى الأدب؟

من تكسب بهذا الأسلوب؟ هل تعتبرها “رجولة” او “قوة” عندما ترى سيدة بأسم الشوباشي تصرخ بهمجية في لقاء تلفزيوني لأنها لم يعجبها كلام الضيف الأخر وقررت انه بألتأكيد خائن إخواني….؟

هل هذه هي “الرجولة” التي تحاولون “تقمصها” من ما ترونه في السيسي؟ أم هل انتم في الأصل بلطجية وقد ظهرت حقيقتكم أخيراً بعد أن إعتقدتم انكم قد “إنتصرتم”؟ هل تجاهلتم تماماً الدرس الذي كان من المفروض ان يصل لكم من تجربة الإخوان في الحكم؟ ان اي “إنتصار” لأي طرف مصري على طرف مصري أخر هو في الواقع “خسارة” لمصر؟ هل مازلتم لا تدركون ذلك؟

اي دولة في العالم – بما فيهم أقوى الدول و أكثرهم تقدما – تدرك انها لا تستطيع ان تعيش او تتقدم بدون أصدقاء – والأن أراكم تعادون العالم أجمع في الوقت الذي تواجه مصر فيه أصعب العقبات الإقتصادية والإجتماعية والإعلامية، والسياسية….

ماذا تتوقعون….؟

إضافة: 

و لكل من يرددون كلام مرفت التلاوي و تهاني الجبالي – أطلب منكم مراجعة أنفسكم. يعني انتوا بتحاولوا تبرروا قلة الأدب اللي حصلت في ندوة المجلس القومي لحقوق المرأة بأنكم تقولوا (زي ما تهاني و مرفت قالوا…) ان البعثة كانت جاية تبص على الإنتخابات و ان الكلام عن حقوق الإنسان و الإنتهاكات القانونية “خارج نطاق” عمل البعثة. و النبي…؟ فكر كده ثانيتين بس – و لو فهمت غلطك روح إشرب عصير و بطل تدافع عن كل شئ غلط لمجرد انك حاسس ان هو ده تعريف “الوطنية” – الوطنية هي ان تفعل ماهو في مصلحة البلد – مش انك تضرب المنطق بعرض الحائط علشان الناس تحس انك وطني وانت في الواقع بتودي البلد في ستين داهية. الإنتخابات (وانا مش مصدق اني محتاج أشرح بديهيات، لكن إتعودنا على كده خلاص) بتجرى في إطار له ملامح – وإذا كان الإطار ده يشمل انك بتقبض على مناديب حملة حمدين في مختلف أنحاء الجمهورية وعندك قانون تظاهر غير ديموقراطي و بالتأكيد غير دستوري (بصوا على التناقض بين المادة الثامنة و العاشرة….) و عندك اكتر من اربعين الف معتقل في الزنازين، و صحف ممنوعة من الإصدار و صحفيين و إعلاميين ممنوعين من الكتابة، وإعلام فاشي بيخون كل من يريد ان يقاطع، و بيحث الناس على التصويت لمواطن بعينه، و حملة إعلانية بالتأكيد تعدت الميزانية المسموح بيها قانونياً، وحكومة بتهدد المواطنين بغرمة خمسمائة جنية لو لم يمارس “حقه” في التصويت – و بعدين تجي في الأخر و تفترض ان كل المصايب دي – “لا علاقة لها بالإنتخابات” – يبقى انت فعلاً بتتجاهل الواقع. الكلام ده لا يعقل بأي شكل من الأشكال – و لو كنت أقل حماساً كنت هتعرف كده من غير ما حد يحاول يشرحلك او يشير اليك بهذه التفاصيل، و لكن للأسف – نحن نرى الأن نزعة غريبة من قلة الأدب و غياب تام للمنطق بحجة “الوطنية” – وارجع اقول و أكد – مش وطنية أبدا انك تطلع مصر بهذه الشكل بما فيه من غباء و وقاحة و قلة أدب – مش هي دي الوطنية.
