In bedtime stories our parents used to read to us, when the fox eats sheep, we used to tell kids that the fox is wicked and black hearted for eating poor sheep. Then we convince the kids to eat meat.”yalla ya 7abeby kol hmm 3shan tekbar”. Why we aren't wicked black hearted people, don't we eat sheep too?
So when we eat meat we are not wicked and that is good for us, but when fox eat meat they are wicked! (Taking in consideration that we have many other things to eat that fox don't have, they won't eat rice or vegetables!) I'm not discussing the matter that God created sheep for us to eat, I know that. I just wonder about how we see things from two perspectives, a general one and a special one when the matter becomes related to us, and here are some examples that most of us do in our daily life:
When we cross the street, we shout at the car owners to slow down, Man3adeesh el share3 y3ny?! We don't have to run and this is a street, ENTA MSH RAKEB TAYARA!
(I heard this particular phrase when i was in my dad car once from a group of dumb people who were trying to cross the Autostrade from a very wise point, Matla3 el kobry!)
But when we drive our cars we shout at the pedestrians to cross the streets faster, ENTA MSH MAASHY 3Al COURNICHE!!!
When anyone crashes into another car, it is impossible for him to admit that it was his mistake although he/she (and it is mostly her) may have no driving license at all! (aw tal3a b el kosa w el wasta zay ma kol el-nas tala3oha , mn 3’eer ay driving test asln).
When we want to drive through “medaan” or “takato3” with our cars, we always think that we have the priority to cross, and the rest of cars should wait for us.
And this lead to a very good rule, the one who doesn’t care more about his ride will cross first. As example: my dad drives (mitsubishi lanser , so if a BMW driver and him were trying to cross, dad will cross first! Cuz his car is cheaper to fix if it was hit. On the other hand, if he tried to cross and the other driver was driving a LADA or an old FIAT, of course he’ll cross first, or he will regret it!
Your father can smoke, but you can’t because it’s dangerous for your health!! As if lung cancer can’t affect fathers!
When you want to sell something, you try to sell it for the highest price you can get, and you try to prove to the buyer that it is better than new!
When you want to buy something, you try to get it for the lowest price you can negotiate for, and you’ll convince the seller that it is a piece of crap and you’re buying it just to help him!!
There are LOADS of other situations, da ely ana fakro now! So this proves that we aren’t fair at all!
Why don’t we just play fair? Leeh el ta3lab byb2a makaar 3shan byakol el 5erfaan w e7na lazm nakol 5erfaan 3shan nekbar?! It’s double standards.
