I had this conversation with someone in college today .. you are completely right , most people cannot hold any sort of intellectual conversation ..and concerning the " Damascus " part .. i had yesterday in class a dude , who was like " eda ya3ni fy maya benna w ben amrika :O " .. in a political science faculty .. and he was serious .. and he was shocked !
Anyway , i still think that this whole democratic liberal ideology and internet combination contributed to this hassle , i mean this allowance to uncensored , free internet is the biggest factor i guess .. plus cyber relations that are -oh so trendy- at the moment ruined one's conversation skills and lead to vocabulary deterioration .. i hear people in college say " gtg" and " brb " .. yeah its lame and all , but its just an obvious proof how much did internet affect us .. people forgot how to write and talk! .. only those mega intellectual people still buy books and read them .. last week i was @ Virgin looking for a book for college and this lady came up to me and she was like " why would you wanna buy books when you have them free on the internet " .. i was like " not all are free plus that it's really bad for my eyes to spend hours reading off a laptop screen" .. and she said "w lazem te2ro ya3ni , hwa fy 7ad ba2 bye2ra now .. ma kolo fl bati5 " .. i did not get what exactly she meant by " kolo fl bati5 " .. but i just smiled and left .. so basically its kinda weird to buy books now .. o.O
how will this country be when this generation takes charge of it ? well , i think there will always be this red line between those 2 main sorts of people : intellectual / non-intellectual .. there will always be people who are gonna look down to the rest .. people who don't know where Egypt is situated .. or maybe they will know .. 3ashan 7afzeen mesh fahmeen .. not 3ashan 7aga tania .. today in my economics class , the doctor said " 3ala fekra el shab el masry a7san b keter mn 3'ero eli bara .. w momken yteach them kaman , just law shal 7etet el 7efz eli 3ando w sha3'al mo5o " .. this is epic ! , it's true .. we, as abna2 masr are naturally creative and intelligent .. if we could just know how to use it ! .. w law batalna nbos bara .. omg , we could do great things! .. if we could just take some time out and think rather than spending 24/7 of our time odam el net .. we will then be able to hold an interesting conversation ! .. 5alina nfakar f our ethics more .. ezay neb2a a7san .. mesh ezay neb2a mon7arfeen aktar =/ .. ma7adesh 7ases bl mas2oleya .. ma7adesh fale7 3'er fl " ana a2ol eli ana 3ayzo w eli mesh 3agbo yewla3"..gah i hear this everyday! .. and it's wrong .. mafish 7aga esmaha keda , hwa e7na kol wa7ed 3aysh l wa7do on a blank plan , wala arent we supposed to live as a community .. i hate this independent-liberal type of thinking .. too much freedom , no control .. and that's the result .. 7afzeen mesh fahmeen robots :)
