Fancy that. Note to self: proofread orebfe posting.Onto emerging themes When I come across statements equating that which is modern with that which is rational, I immediately think, okay, here is a statement that confuses these two concepts (and understandably so since billions are spent to make these concepts seem alike). When I see statements insisting on equating the two concepts, I think, okay, here is a statement that is not just rooted in confusion but it might also be a symptom of diseases of self-assured knowledge and arrogance (تکبر) which is Satanic and misleads.To date, there has never been a unified and agreed upon definition for modernity. Some have tried to equate modernity with urbanizations, industrialization, free market system, and liberal societies. However, critical arguments are raised against all these linkages. Curious minds could explore the literature about modernization and urbanization theories, sociology of industrialization, etc. There was a time (still is, thanks to the efforts of transnational tobacco companies), for example, that a woman smoking cigarettes was considered modern. Now, it's considered plain dumb (and rightfully so as it's a product that kills when used as directed). Once upon a time, when the colonies were advancing in other people's land and exploiting the indigenous populations, the colonizers were mostly covered up and the colonized were mostly naked (in some parts but not all). At that time, “backward” meant “nakedness,” as the colonizers referred to it in their own books. The referred to the local populations, for example, as “naked savages.” To dress modestly was to be “modern” and “advanced”. All of a sudden, when they decided to “bear it all” and put things on display, nakedness became “modern” and to dress modestly was equated to being “backward”. In fact, it has reached a point that, in today’s world, industries built upon commodification of human body (more women than men but men are catching up as well) is, by far, the most profitable industries on the plant followed by their close cousins, military industries. If one were to extract two major themes from all that is conceived nowadays to be modern, one would be limited to two overarching categories: sex and violence. Even the application of the most advanced forms of technology in medicine (that is supposed to be a healing art) takes one of two (and sometimes both) of these forms. From plastic surgery to radical hysterectomy; from orgasm-enhancing reconstructions to penal implants; from “pink pills” to Viagra; from chemo and radiation therapies to “whatever-ectomies”; from antibiotics (which literally means “against life) to pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and whatever-else-icides. In the name of rationality and wisdom, they are injecting millions of young (as young as 8 or 9) girls with Gardasil (with new ones developed for boys) with known short- and long-term side effects courtesy of the drug companies’ wining and dining of a bunch of self-serving greedy FDA staff and physicians. Parents who submit to this insane approach are “rational” and “modern.” Those who don’t are “irrational,” “backward,” and “ignorant.” [Physicians’ and medical establishment’s cowardly and self-serving submission to these “pressures” is extremely disturbing and particularly appalling because of their position in society as so-called “expert” authority/power/influence].So-called “modernity” is many things if we were to examine it by the proxies that have been attributed to it. Rationality couldn’t possibly be one of them (unless of course we are concocting a different definition for rationality). “[B]y any standard economic measure, society is regressing not progressing. It is poorer, not richer. And this backwards step in our wealth might be a backwards step in our wellbeing too.” From J.E. Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate Economist [Ref: Lancet, the Stiglitz Commission report, 2009]
