I love my friends.
I love my friends for so many reasons!
One of the reasons why, is a day like today, and a conversation like the one we had today.
Ok, it was more of an argument....and we were loud.
So we were sitting there at my favourite coffee-shop and it started by my arguing that I think marketing (some marketing) is unethical. We were sat there, a law major, an economics major (yours truly), a political science major and two marketing majors.
Then it moved to something I am somehow passionate about, the evolution of the Egyptian political system, and the law major (Menna) was justifying Nasser and sort of standing up for him in a way, Wessam and I were more for King Farouk, the marketing majors chose to remain silent.
Then we moved on to the origins of a state!! As a political organisation that is...and Wessam and I were arguing that philosophers (Plato and Aristotle- and Rousseau) are in a way politicians, (we were then joined by another law major) and the law people argued that the state was formed by law. I say politics.
Now, I have to credit the marketeers! Who, as the argument reached it's climax, proposed that we form a team of lawyers and that of social scientists (if I may call us that!) and they should market our point of views! How creative is that?
As we were joined by even more law majors, we became louder and louder, and eventually the discussion took a nationalist course, and how the qualification match was turned into a nationalist cause and a marketing opportunity! (will post about that later) and how we think it is sad. Watch this: a touching embodiment of unity!
lawyers in the making
I am not showing my friends off really, but I am rather expressing my pride in the potential we have. The potential that we, as youth of a developing country, have but cannot really realise. Due to the fact that we are driven to believe we have not the means to realise the great potential in us!
my very own musician! he wasn't there though...
We are such a powerful driving force! We are revolutionary! And of that, I am proud :)
Even though we have to accept the fact that we are only human (that applies to everyone!) we should also realise that humans have such great power! We are superhuman in a way, only if we choose to be!
Rise up, and change your world. Promise.
PS We are fun people, not always geeky/nerdy/whatever you would like to call it!
