Essays: Political writing

Generally, an essay is the resultant of group of humanistic and practical sciences plus series and matrices of events and facts. And it is not a novel but it contains different types of narration. Political essay is one of many types of essays which should give a true and accurate perusal about the politics with its trend and interactions both locally and internationally in addition to inspect the behavior of the leaders and their political systems.


A political essay, like other types, should learn lessons from past, take current events from the present and look up the future by scientific eye plus humanities as sociology, psychology, logic, statistics and economics. Good political essay should be written by independent writer who isn't aligned to an intellectual school and he must be existentialist, bold, has noble message and write with modern and accurate language to motivate mind and emotions of the mass.


Also it should enhance morality, truth, justice, freedom, good and other merits plus try to balance thoughts in relations with others. All mentioned before is an ideal example of a political essay where mine and any other one should follow these conditions and any other scientific and literary specifications.


There is different cultures, schools, environments, levels of knowledge and experience, interests for both writer and readers plus public interests of different countries, So we can clearly see the differences and confliction with their advantages and disadvantages because dissimilarity is mode of life and everlasting determinism.


The present condition indicates presence of obstacles and difficulties not only in Arabian political essay, but also in the global essays. For example, political essays in the north countries don't become free totally as it suffers from psychological terrorism, slander and false accusation that aims to defamation and it may extend to punishment and creating obstacles in the way of unlimited freedom claimers who try to gain rights, justice and work outside the black cover of the powerful exploitative forces, that aims to control minds and emotions of people via programming it to serve their selfish interest. These forces depend on the misleading propaganda, pro-judgment and punishment.


Also the Arabian political essay suffer a lot of similar problems as absence of freedom, military authority over the sources of life and subjugation of writers to believe in their shameful actions plus propagating for them or being tortured by all its types. So the Arabian political essays disunite the people tribally and ideologically and raise quarrel and conflict between them letting them in continuous fight. The national political essays suffer from aging, not renewable and can not bring up a new powerful and healthy generation. So we see obviously moral and scientific decline in the Arabian political essay and its analogues.


The political essay future will be subjected to the geo political changes and the resultant of the information revolution and international interventions as globalization, freedom ceiling, case faith and the writer ability and experience. So I expect seeing rare good quality essays and much more miserable falling ones which means continuation for the bad present in the Arabian nation who is dying each day.


There is no hope except by a cultural and media revolution depends on new strategies leaded by the creators and people capable of creating and moving events honestly and faithfully. The political essay will weaken or strengthen depending on the random movement of the universal communities following the scientific inventions, the available freedom ceiling and the economic factor. Elaborate your work, so you can reach glory and highness which are your inevitable future.
