New racism is on the way. Racism exists in many forms.
What is happening to my friends in Tunisia is really sad. They are facing the worst kind of racism. It is religious intolerance.
Religious intolerance is the NEW RACISM!
When religion is backed by the government it is the worst combination.
When religion is imposed on you and you are forced to live by laws of certain religion, you lose your true freedom.
Please read the below article... I have done quick google translate:
A work of art titled'' The Republic of Tunisia Islaïque'' arouses controversy and causes a spot in the Spring Arts Festival, held in La Marsa 1st to June 10thBy Alouini Walid * The Spring Arts Festival held at the Abdellia La Marsa was as discredited.A wonderful event that is still in its infancy but promising with galleries offering an eclectic range of works.Implement a "politically incorrect"Originally Skid Spring Arts not a commando or a bearded zealous servant but a fussy and self-censorship on the part of organizers and a volcanic reaction from the organized.I have provided in a recent writing that this mega exhibition would be in the sights but far be it from me that would be hara-kiri.Self-censorship, we vaccinated in childhood, is to be concerned about what might be thought that the authority for our actions and anticipate this hypothesis by censoring writing, image, work in a word .A young artist has made montages, collages, he said, the present Tunisia and gave it:'' The Republic of Tunisia Islaïque'' as a slogan and a cross through the whole work including growing our top star and Star of David at the bottom.Here's the murder weapon. A work unpretentious but has the right to a life as possible that only the public is entitled to give or take away.He was told by the organizer who referred and selected those works prior to the exposure he needed to pick up for the transition from television because they could be deemed "politically incorrect".Outcry from the artist in question. Reaction which fails to form but understandable in the background.We torpillons our areas of freedomSolidarity from the rest of the artists in understandable form.Result: works taken down, lights out and rotten mood.The bearded can thank us warmly: we make their jobs more effectively than they are, torpillons our areas of freedom and peace of mind helping to pour even more that this country expects us more wisdom, respect and solidarity.Wisdom would have liked the selection of works is the guarantor of "peace" of the artist, instead of a reversal from the organizers totally unjustified who set fire to the powder.Compliance would have wanted the artist in question has shown restraint as to his reaction.Solidarity is a fine example of humanism and empathy, it must also be considered and does not reach the opposite result to that intended.Beyond this blunder which all the players were mild, I think our worst enemy is ourselves. With our fears, our guilt eternal history and our ability to anticipate the desires of castration of our tormentors and those we have placed at the head of state. We are and remain the greatest danger to this country with our ball of self-censorship.Opposite we have gurus and brainwashed and full of certainties do not hesitate to use strong force for us again and again to restrict our living and freedoms. Them practice castration with a club for anesthetic. They are not afraid to impose stronger retrograde models, devoid of good sense and is totally against the grain of sense of history. They defend them with us verbally abusing, physically and intellectually.Will we still give in to intimidation and direct underground? Let's face it, there will always be an incumbent government with an ideology that is in conflict with any part of the population. Will we, each time, reaching a civil war?Gag us to consolidate their powerGovernments come and go (and this one even more than others), the values remain.We defend the core values for humans: the freedom with all its corollaries, respect, solidarity and dignity.The failed state (but we knew it) leaves his branch takes hold retaliation vis-à-vis the population and account for our guilt millennium we lowered our heads again and help them in their dirty work to find us gag the time it takes to consolidate their power. It always will. This is the rule of the gameLet's make a bulwark against those we elect and let them know that their chair is a short-term lease that provide LDCs. Otherwise, we will make them clear off. Action reaction.Still, we must learn to control self-censorship that germinates in us and not being afraid to proclaim our salvation and vital difference to our rebirth. The shocking difference at the beginning is the only wealth of a nation. That would be a nation of clones?The worst thing to do would be to derail this wonderful initiative which is the Spring Arts Festival.The art, I say and repeat, is the major vector of rebirth, he pulls up policies by encouraging them to think outside their natural filter, it takes up an entire people by giving it a frame , a vision, a path and a history.We must keep our heads and continue to follow the path that is lit timidly began.This spring art must not lead to the tundra as was the case of the Arab SpringIt is our responsibility, we free citizens.
