A Fruit Seller Changed the Nations’ Future
The poor young man was pulling a fruit trolley in order to sell fruits and fend for his family when police surprised him and prevented him from selling fruit. When he tried to resist, one of the policewomen slapped him on his face in front of about fifty pedestrians. The poor man felt very embarrassed and burst into tears. Later, Mohammad Bouazizi, the fruit seller, decided to set himself on fire out of desperation. Bouazizi put an end to his life, and a beginning to many other people’s lives. The Tunisian fruit seller died eighteen days after this accident without knowing that his action had ignited revolutions in his country and many other Arabic countries. After what happened in Tunisia and many other countries, a new term has been used to refer to the revolutionary wave and civil wars that took place in the Arabic area (The Arab Spring) began in December 18, 2010. A major slogan of the demonstrators in the Arab world has been Ash-sha’b yurid isqat an-nizam “ the people want to bring down the regime”.Although the revolution came to fruition in Tunisia, Libya and some other countries, the conflict still exists in Egypt, Syria and Iraq. This leads to an important question about when it becomes necessary to stage a revolution, and who determines how important it is, and who should be responsible for the decision in case things got out of control. Being a conflict between different opposing sides, and having serious harmful consequences, citizens shouldn’t start a revolution unless there is a necessary demand for change and reform.
According to Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, the author of Declaration of Independence, and the founder of the University of Virginia, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is natural manure.”(Thomas Jefferson). Revolutions are the last resort, which peoples should embrace only if there is no hope for reform. According to “Revolutions, Reform and Democratic Transition in the Arab Homeland from the Perspective of the Tunisian Revolution” by Azmi Bishara, “The suicide of one person or several people will not, in itself, result in revolution; what brought about the revolutionary situation was the sense of total impasse, that the ruler was no longer able to continue with the traditional methods of governance, and nor were the ruled able to bear the methods wielded by the regime any longer.” The “Youthquake” as some people may call, has succeeded in some Arabic countries and brought the regime down as in Tunisia and Libya. It came after decades of people’s suffering from poverty, unemployment, economic decline and political corruption. The leaders of these countries which witnessed revolutions, on the other hand, were living in luxury and comfort and used to deny the citizens’ demands. The revolution has come just at...
