Concentration camp in Armenia: Do Armenian children have a promising future?

05 June 2010 [13:25] - TODAY.AZ
International Children’s Day is celebrated across the globe June 1. Children are born free and happy throughout the world.
Later, we become socialized and shape our views on life, either accepting or opposing the conditions in our country. Whether a newborn baby will remain free and happy throughout his her life depends on the environment in this country. Thus, the Strugatsky brothers were right when they argued that personal happiness is impossible without public happiness. In other words, unhappy and unfree societies cannot have happy and free individuals. This is the destiny of those who are part of a society that is deprived of the God-granted right to happiness and freedom and resembles some sort of a concentration camp.

In case with Armenia, there is not one, but rather several lost generations. This is the result of the triumph of the selfish interests of Armenian idea-mongers around the world who were put above the interests of Armenian citizens. This has encouraged the oligopoly in the country.

At an opposition, the Armenian National Congress rallied in Gumri. A local resident admitted sadly that “today we have poor conditions in our country. The situation is even worse in Gumri. People are out of work, and children are looking for a piece of bread in rubbish. Gumri residents have nothing left to be proud of.” This mood will last as long as Armenia’s economic problems deepen.

Having committed aggression against Azerbaijan and Azerbaijan’s occupied territories, Armenia deprived itself of development and large regional projects. The country cannot even hope for investments as investments are only made in attractive industries that will ultimately bring profit. They cannot hope for any loans either. The authorities have failed to address the country’s deepening economic problems and they have made the economy even more dependent on the outside world. Armenia's leaders also failed to attract the funds of the diaspora to revive the economy. The money allocated by the diaspora is not enough to fund state-building.

There are a number of reasons. First, Armenian idea-mongers want Armenia to depend on myths passed on from generation to generation. They want Armenian citizens to be dependent on idea-mongers who transfer funds to Armenia and lobby international loans. Dependent and hungry men are easier to rule than well-fed and independent citizens.

Secondly, fed up with the hard life in Armenia, Armenian citizens are leaving the country together with their families. They are escaping from the concentration camp set up by the authorities. Building their lives in free countries abroad, they grow to care even less about Armenia’s problems. They begin to understand that the ideology of Armenia's nationalists, which is plagued by a paranoia of “genocide” and constant territorial claims against their neighbors, is nothing more than a failure. Current Armenian rulers are not strong enough to admit this fact. They are setting a trap for new generation of Armenians.
