This week lecture is about the Arab Spring. In this lecture we were discussed about the common features of Arab Spring. It’s all about Arab Spring. I actually do not know about this issues and I think I never heard this term. This is my first time. In lecture, I was trying to understand what the lecturer was trying to tell us. But I cannot because it is very difficult to understand the new issues if I myself never heard about that.
Then, I am trying to ask my friend and he said that Arab spring is about the conflict that happen in Arab region which is they want a democracy country after they were in dictatorship for a long time. The common features that they shows are their secularized character, the claim of citizen dignity, the refusal of anti-westernism, greater acceptance of gender equality, the emergence of new middle classes and the lack of political leadership.For non-contempereneity of Arab regimes are they refuse the present time and the modern structures of the power. They refuse democracy system and still want to continue with their structure of the power. They also have anchaic strata of power which is not suitable for the last pace of today’s world. They also exert a coercive and anachronistic.
A historical moment in the Arab world brings a transitional difficult period to them. There are holidays in history. The absence of modernity as a deep rooted structure and historical experience. And the absence of real democratic experience. The existence of ideologization of religion which state that Islam has been ideologies and entered into history competing with other modern ideologies.The future hope and prospect of arable spring are creation of democratic structures because democracy is a result of a historical process, and it would convey a paradigm within which all the phenomena of mind are related in some organic way. Second, hope to better understanding of western modernity, despite the painful memorize of colonization and the development of critical thinking. And return to the moral values of Islam as a religion because Islam is not a political ideology.
