Salam Alaykum encountering some Muslims (either Shia or Sunni) and their attitude, and also observing my own attitude sometimes, I have discovered something that is very common among us. this common practice is based on a universal rule: it is always easier to blame and criticize humble people. here's the observation: there's this poor family who have been attacked and humiliated by people from upper class in the society, since the attack, the father could not do anything but to continue his endless efforts to hold together the family, he tries so hard to provide for the family, there are children of this family, the son grows up, goes to school, sees a lot of well-educated, neatly clothed children, very civilized behavior ..., these are the children of that upper class who did injustice to the father of the family, but the son does not know all this, it was for a long time ago, suddenly he has a very deep inferiority complex, he can't tell them anything they are better than him in every aspect, the son comes back home, sees his parents and starts criticizing his parents because they were losers, and they are the cause for him being inferior at the school. the son has made some very good friendships with those well-civilized children and sees everything they have as perfect, likewise, he sees all the problems as being produced because of his parents thus he is always confrontational with them, but inferior and humble toward the civilized children. his parents love him (they did all they did for their children and the family to stay together) but now the son is lost and no matter whatever his parents do, he has taken a direction which only distances him from the family. so in this way, the family remains there as secondary, a third world country, that has lost all his children to the civilized world. this has been the rule throughout all history, there were people who wouldn't see the main tyrant of the time and would be like a mouse toward the main tyrant, but were very brave in criticizing the infallible Imams (as). so don't forget, it is always easier to criticize and blame the oppressed people or the humble leader.
We often hear how the rise of Western ideas of liberation and human rights have caused the loss of traditional values which have had serious consequences especially in the developing world. What is missed is the role economic forces play in the shifting of values. Standards which were hitherto backbone of morality gradually become economically nonviable. Economic development of the kind we see in South Korea, China, Brazil, India etc is hailed ad nauseam by everyone from any ideological background. Researchers swim in awe-inspiring growth figures, enriched middle and trading classes, registers of jobs, and whatnot. But there is little recognition of the cost fast economic activity levies on the host society. You can find social parallels in each country listed above of the story quoted below. Read full HERE
