Emad Barsoum writes: Demise of Monarchies

History tells us that the most significant revolutions outbroke against monarchies and the feudal systems they protected under the blessings of the church. It was a whole formula that represented tyranny, exploitation, dictatorship, and repression. The first revolution in the new world that declared its rejection of the crown and sought the formation of a republic and abolishing monarchy was the American re ...

Emad Barsoum writes: One Place One People

Our country is proud to be the home of diversity, inclusion, equality, tolerance, acceptance, and much greater social and human values. But are these idealistic attributes real or virtual? Are they just slogans, or do they exist in reality? The premise this time is inversed. We will try to find out if some people who arrive in their new country are adapting to the place or if they are thriving to maintain t ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Knowledge, Experience, and in between

While engaging in a debate on one of the major social media platforms about the information anarchy on the internet and how any person can state some information only for it to go viral and becomes fact (even if false), one of our intellectual friends said that most of the internet knowledge claimers fall under the Dunning-Kruger effect. In a simple form, the Dunning-Kruger effect occurs when a person’s lac ...

In 2019 Egyptian minister of transportation resigned after a deadly train crash that killed 25 and left 50 injured. South Korea Prime Minister resigned in 2014 over a ferry sinking that left 300 dead, and there are much more stories about officials who resign and offer public apologies when their offices failed to carry on their duties righteously and morally toward the citizens, who trusted their governmen ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Flying high

When I watched the famous parody “Airplane” (1980) a long time ago, it never crossed my mind that one day this farce movie would come to reality and even be part of the daily scenes that passengers live at once upon a time one of the most important airports in the world. When we were laughing out loud at this movie, we never thought that the tears of laughter would one day be the tears of extreme anguish, f ...

Emad Barsoum writes: A non-digital cup of coffee

I am writing these words, and I am not sure if they will even reach the readers this week. I woke up early in the morning to finish the article (originally about oil prices and the economy)  to  meet the printing deadline, however, my plans quickly changed. My articles are always last-minute issues to provide the valued readers with views and analysis on the latest and hot topics, if any. Reading and listen ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Inflation, Gas Prices… The way out

Every morning you wake up, there is a new increase in the prices of goods and services; hikes are at a rapid pace that hasn’t been experienced for so many years. It is very well known that the significant drive for such an increase in prices is directly contributed to the extreme surge in crude oil prices globally. But does this rise in crude oil prices reflect the actual demand and supply for the oil? Duri ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Another Term… Another Hope

The dust finally settled on the provincial elections last week. The campaigning and elections were not the toughest compared to previous provincial elections, they were relatively swift and without much sweat from all different candidates and parties’ leaders.  Indeed, nothing about the results was unpredicted or a surprise; however, the disappointing fact was that fewer voters went to the polls in respect ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Torn between two… Gas or Electric

The world is still divided between the global warming issue, the environmental challenges, and the earth's future all the while man is destroying it with fossil fuels. We are not going to take any sides or add any scientific input or theories. Instead, it is a conversation around Fuel vs. Electric vehicles and the future of the automotive industry.  Automotive buyers have been demonstrating impulsive and em ...

Emad Barsoum writes: The Party of the Parties

When we were young, I remember going to parties with many friends, whether we knew all or some of them. Once we entered the party, we saw some dancing, others eating, drinking, or smoking; everyone is doing whatever they prefer. We were so excited, acting like children, who have just received a new toy or their favorite chocolate bar from their grandfather. Still, it is a variety of non-similar activities a ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Media and Public opinion in the times of War

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  These were the words and doctrine of Joseph Goebbels, who was the second most important man in the German Nazi Party, and the Minister of Propaganda for Adolf Hitler’s regime. His job was to create public opinions in favor of the party’s ideologies and goals, direct the mass crowds of the Germans to believe in ...
