On the Lebanese Revolution
The revolution is a woman indeed, a mother who will give birth to other revolutions.
Two explosions within the revolution: an explosion caused by gun/gunpowder and an explosion caused by leadership and a decision.
The ‘groups’ that were in power before the 17 October Revolution will act as following: a group saying: “goodbye Lebanon,” a group acting with remorse, a group trying to hide in fear, a group changing sides, a group rushing to courts nationally and internationally.
The groups’ distribution continues: a group “playing” and getting played, a group negotiating, bargaining, and creating adjustments, a group facing what seems like a suicide mission, and another group appears to be drained of members.
The final groups are: a group facing phycological and health crises; some are fabricated and some are real. A group trying to regain what was lost, a group changing its face and exchanging its guns as well as changing its expression and behavior, a group revealing scandals and deals, and, finally, a group will have its freedom held hostage as if it’s under house arrest.
