Arabian Taboos / Khaled Alnobani

It is easier to put one's soul at risk than to put his living!

Here are some Arabians' threads that make it hard to gamble with his achievements in life. The biggest achievement is maintaining safety.
I will be talking now about what not to talk about. The taboos that no Arabian dare to violate (this view is changing and the target of this article is to define and put a circle around it).

Policies that prevailed then expired.

Forbidden to Arabians:

  • Making meaningful Comparisons.
  • Work of "Flash Back" which carries no meaning of the concept but remembering a different better reality, situations or conditions.
  • Questioning or opposing the stereotype of imposed, inherited characters, old or contemporary, even if they became out of power.
  • Mocking (i.e. criticism in any form whatsoever) the views of the Avenue (this is a metaphor) especially when seen through the evidence of why it is done.
  • In particular the use of all forms of logic (except benefit and interest logic): the logic of language (semantics) especially in the evaluation of any argument started or evolutionarily developed  from behind, or from above, or through any platform, the logic that links between different events, and the logic of linking cause to effect.
  • Claiming to understand the current situations (a way of loyalty concerns) and claiming the ability to develop solutions because this is doubting the stakeholders who definitely understand more than fools like ordinary citizens.
  • Naming or making direct or indirect links with  legal or moral characters (regardless of the elements and vocabulary and connecting factors).
  • Newspaper articles that answer the fundamental questions which make a final pose to real professional and responsive actions, especially corrective ones.
  • The search for causes, reasons, motivations and intentions, especially if they are very clear because not everything that is known could be said (correctly).
  • Prevailing the western pattern of thinking. (I discovered this when I sent an article about and the ethical essences of western writing. Actually and literally all what I have written in it was a school book homework).


What will happen if the Arabians reviewed concepts such as national industry protection in the past or the historical outlook and its implications for monopolies that were protected by the forces of law and its provisions? I can ask these questions but in most places you cannot question why authority is so holy.

What are the Arabians' opinions now about the historical perspective of education and unemployment?

Does any Arabian remember these things now and regard them?
I doubt that.

It is obvious that there is nothing of these taboos related to religion  because, in all of this, religion is only a tool.

Ordinary people who talk about and engage in not respecting these taboos by arguments and disputes become a substance of being, sometimes, an example of punishment, and other times a subject of jokes for other citizens.

The Arabian person is selective even in saying hello; he says it for the particular person who is supported by power of any kind (if he is within a group the Arabian will name that person in particular).
To understand and behave well the Arabians must go beyond the methods of preaching and guidance and Fatwa (advisory opinion) because they are all related to typical modeled responses.
Even literate talents are not recognized unless cultured and formed under the hooves of power and on its paper, written by its ink and living for its lane  because this is the only way it will be responsible and worthy of consideration.
