A Roadmap for Mohamed Hechmi Hamdi

Tunisian aspiring politician Mohamed Hechmi Hamdi can make more success by choosing winning strategies rather than begging electors for votes.
Hechmi Hamdi "killed" his dreams by announcing that he would become the next president of Tunisia. Judit Giuliani, the wife of the former mayor of New York Rudolph Giuliani, was asked in The View whether her husband wants to become a candidate for the 2008 Presidential Elections and she replied no. Shortly later, we found him running for the Republican Primary Elections. Hamdi shouldn't reveal his ambitions in such a clear way thus, jeopardizing his plans and giving his opponents the opportunity to short-circuit his career. Moreover, Hamdi should found a political party thus, institutionalizing his political activism. He was envied by the other political parties, both winners and losers in the elections, because the Popular Petition that he found was an independent list and not a political party. The second reason for the media lynching of Hamdi is that he hasn't come to Tunisia. He was masterminding from the outer seas.

Pornography and the Distortion of Beauty

Pornography has swept the world; you find it almost everywhere whether explicitly or not. Thousands of Internet websites are attracting audiences from all walks of life although the habit of watching blue-content DVDs has been crumbling. The success of of the pornography industry may be due to the power of its mission: To satisfy our sexual instinct. Pornography is teaching whole generations pervert and bizarre sexual techniques that we assume our partners will automatically accept and even embrace. More importantly, pornography is distorting our taste of beauty.

Pornography is emphasizing the extremes. Internet websites that broadcast adult content focus on the superlatives; the biggest, the tallest, the tiniest, etc. It's distorting the way we appreciate the beautuful things. Fit women are considered slim and unfit for sex. Fat women are, according to them, super sexy and are able to give more pleasure. This is at odds with the rules of human biology. It is also emphasizing the freak. Ugly men and women are portrayed as unique and different. Our taste is perverted.

Big can be beautiful but it's not the only beautiful. Many organizations are compaigning for size awareness and for the cause of obese women but their work is hindered by these pornographic sites which instill in the viewer's mind the isea that big size is related to pleasure and sexual fulfilment. They are also discriminating against the slim ones. They also don't show respect for their models who are treated as beasts and tools of pleasure. A new norm of beauty is being established by the adult-content websites and is witnessing a widespread in the mainstream media and in society as a whole.
