or Comb For a Beard
It is a miserable sight to those who read about this beautiful ancient country of Azerbaijan to be subjected to an appalling and uninvited sight in the cyber postings of the youth over Facebook and Twitter that rave about the arrested youth, fraudulent elections or biased national media.
Instead of focusing on important subjects, these so called cyber activists are forced to employ all there time to rant about ridiculous themes like freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of the press or freedom to practice one’s religion.
Let’s face it, who really needs these alleged fundamental rights? Will they provide food for the hungry or shelter for the poor?
Even the president Ilham Aliyev was quoted in an interview in 2010 saying that “we become a subject to very unjustified and biased critical attacks in so called international human rights groups.”
I mean, why does Amnesty International (an organization dedicated to reinforce and support human rights around the world) care so much about a 19 year old Jabbar Savalanli who took part in the protests against the government.
Or Radio Azadliq (Radio Liberty dedicated to broadcasting news in places where free flow of information is banned or restricted) really care about Bakhtiyar Hajiyev who didn’t want to give up his constitutional rights and serve in the army.
I believe and the president Aliyev would agree with me, that these groups are just resentful of Azerbaijan’s “growing economic potential and want to influence Azerbaijan from various parts of the world” (President Aliyev in an Interview, 2010).
We need a deep-seated solution to this much foreign pressure and local unrest.
It is understood by many parties (and by that I mean the president Ilham Aliyev and his trusted vassals) that this prodigious number of ideas and views in the present state of the nation is a very great additional grievance and only divide the nation.
Therefore whoever can find a fair and easy solution in making these so called cyber activists a useful members of the commonwealth would deserve so well of the public as to have his statue set up for the preserver of the nation.
But my intentions are very far from being confined to getting rid of the cyber activists. It is of a much greater extent. As to my own part, having turned my thoughts upon this important subject, and maturely weighed the several schemes of other objectors such as the opposition leaders, the youth and self proclaimed free media.
I have always found them grossly mistaken in their computation. My solution is to set up a lawful national leader to unite the nation. You may ask if there’s a national leader for the people of the country what is the necessity to make it endorsed by law?
Well, the legalization of such subject is for the benefit of the youth as well as the nation at large. It creates conformity and an unchanged precedent, inscribes the name of this leader in the history of the nation for the centuries to come.
And the youth, instead of spending their quality time on the net trying to come up with diverse views and analysis can understand that the sentiment and the eminence of a leader is not only in the hearts of the people but it is engraved in the law of the government for ever. Such distinction separates us from other so called democratic western countries.
In the United States, accepted national leader of the country, George Washington was voted unanimously a president and for ever in the hearts of American people is regarded as the father of the nation. Yet his name is not regarded legally as a national leader.
He is only considered as a first president who refused to serve a third term in order not to set up a precedent for future generations and give way to dictatorship.
One might add if a nation is suitably republican and governed by law instead of a tradition why not reflect an important member of the nation in the law of the country as a national leader?
There’s likewise another important advantage in my scheme to make a national leader legalized, that it will make us look as a democratic republic governed solely by law in the eyes of the world. It will hopefully get rid of the horrid bombardment by the media like Radio Azadliq, CNN and BBC and organizations like the Amnesty International. We will truly look like a lawful democratic western country for the years to come.
I therefore humbly offer my thoughts to public consideration. Our great country has everything. We are becoming wealthier, healthier and happier by the second thanks to a very worthy person, a true lover of his country, and whose virtues we all highly esteem, he is the heir of our national leader.
I think the advantages of my proposal to legalize the national leader are obvious and many as well as of the highest importance.
First of all, it will make us look as truly democratic in the eyes of the western countries, the United Nations, Council of Europe and the European Union. Secondly, poor cyber activists will understand once and for all, this nation is united by one and only national leader.
Finally, it will silence the supposed western media and non governmental organizations. Although there are many other advantages to my proposal they shouldn’t be counted today as they will be apparent in coming years.
Thus, I can think of no one objection that will possibly be raised against this proposal to make the national leader legalized. On the contrary I believe after we execute this proposal all other western countries would either legalize their national leaders or create a new national leader in order to legalize them.
I desire those politicians and cyber activists who dislike my overture, and may perhaps be so bold as to attempt another answer that will include all the advantages that this proposal holds.
I confess, in the sincerity of my heart, that I have not the least personal interest in attempting to promote this necessary work, having no other motive than the public good of my country.
