Word of the decade was "dignity". Return "dignity" to post-colonial nations. Give "dignity" to poor oppressed communities. And so on and so forth.
Something always bothered me there. Something was wrong.
Lucky, I live in Israel and finally I understood.
Our Arab neighbors are talking a lot about "being their own masters". What they omit is that in their world masters must have slaves.
This modern "dignity" was never about freedom - it was about dominance.
