The Apoliticals

There is a thin fine line between the government’s bullshit and the activists’ bullcrap in Egypt. Walking this line is not easy, you usually end up being alienated by supporters of both group. There are no echo chambers for walkers of this line, our political attitudes are constantly being reassessed and oftentimes changed, we are skeptics without convictions. We do not engage in patriotic chauvinism nor anti-government activism, we are not motivated enough to protest or campaign, we don’t really believe in anything. The ideas we receive are quarantined until proven true or false, of course this never happens, they simply keep swinging in the grey area, one time near convincing another time near utter nonsense, sometimes occupying the two ends of the spectrum simultaneously, we simply do not know, most information is beyond our reach, that we are pretty much sure of.
