In honour of Raif Badawi: Problems needing solutions, all connected to one topic
Shift The Script can see the network of problems far more clearly than most people, and below is a short list from a much-longer list covering issues suffered by real victims, bound by a common problem and in need of a solution:
~ Saudi Arabia teenager Murtaja Qureiris of the Shiite minority faces death penalty for taking part in protest when he was 10-years-old.
~ According to report commissioned by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Christians are being persecuted to genocidal levels in the Middle East
~ 7 years to this day, Raif Badawi was arrested. His family is still waiting in Canada to be reunited with him.
~ Women’s rights and freedom of speech in Saudi Arabia: woefully terrible.
~ More than 1 million people in more than 200 countries have signed a petition condemning the injustice handed down to Nasrin Sotoudeh by Iran’s government, and demand her freedom. 30 years of jail and more than 100 lashes is inhumane.
Connecting problems today powering dysrationalia: CIA, media, education
Dysrationalia affects many people every day, and many people are unaware of how they display dysrationalia. How do we learn skills, to hone rational intelligence and overcome dysrationalia? What are the consequences of dysrationalia? What are the causes of dysrationala?
From “The Intelligence Trap” by science journalist David Robson, we know people from WEIRD (Western, Educated, Industralised, Rich, Democratic) countries are more likely to be blinded by individual biases and egocentric thinking. In “12 Rules For Life” by Dr. Jordan Peterson, the foreword explores the problems of advocating a key modern philosophy about how “everything is relative”, instead of Aristotle’s virtues and vices in “Nicomachean Ethics” as an example of a system refining a never-ending process of making vital distinctions and connections.
Education creates solutions. Education can also create problems. The need to teach a shared set of societal values, rules and skills for rational intelligence should be a primary part of every schooling system today, so children and adults can understand the importance of intellectual integrity and intellectual humility to counter dysrationalia.
Humans have 7 rules which the majority are able to relate to, according to Oliver Scott Curry at Oxford’s Institute for Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology. They are:
Two Neighboring Countries in Southeast Asia and fasting controversies in Ramadan
What do you know about Malaysia, Singapore and Ramadan? Malaysia is a Muslim-majority country which adheres to Sunni Islam, and the majority of Muslims are Sunni Muslims who adhere to the Shafi’I school of Islamic Jurisprudence. Singapore is a country with a secular constitution where Muslims are a minority, and the majority of Muslims are Sunni Muslims who adhere to the Shafi’I school of Islamic jurisprudence. Other differences and similarities abound between these 2 countries, and Ramadan 2019 was an example.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar observed by Muslims globally as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. A celebration of the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad, the annual observance of Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam and lasts twenty-nine to thirty days, from one visual sighting of the sickle moon to the next. While fasting from dawn until sunset, devotees refrain from food, drink, smoking, physical relations, and immoral behavior that may repeal the reward of fasting striving to purify themselves and improve their taqwa (good deeds and God-consciousness).
