    The background sound is a little too loud and absolutely annoying.
    Video was good but I just couldn't bear the music for more than 4 minutes and had to stop watching.
    It would be great if you could use a better background music or lower the volume of it.

  • The Philosopher of Culture

    The shut-down of the Suez Canal only shows how limited and vindictive Arabs tend to be. Theirs is an unsuitable culture for our times. I cannot off-hand think of any culture being more stupid and selfishly short-sighted than the Arab cultures. We had some hope for long-term wisdom and modernisation of society with the arrival of young MbS but he has showed himself to be a duplicitous selfish despot like any Arab ruler. It is in their culture, I see no other explanation. There is no rationality in it, just look at the terrible mess the Middle East is in since time immemorial. Perhaps it is because of Islam that is so rigid that it prevented any development? Fact is, after the 13th century is was all downhill. They did not have anything remotely like the Chinese and Indian wisdom or European philosophies. They only bickered and fought and considered their personal male pride far more important than the well-being of their people. Apparently, they know everything about violence, suppression and making misery, and nothing about spreading happiness and real leadership. MbS had his chance and blew it in the worst way possible (murder, tribalism, suppression, and starting an unwinnable war).
