Can Anyone Fill The ‘Bisht’ Here?

Fancy titles; everyone pursues them in Arab cultures where it is a sign of ‘honor’ and ‘prestige.’ Ministries, companies, governments, even volunteering and social organizations; they their love titles; it fuels their ego even if they perform piss-poorly at their menial tasks. The Minister of this. The 4th Deputy Premier of that. The Vice-President in charge of this. Assistant Under-Secretary in charge of that. Whatever.

They are in denial – they get superficial respect, but are mocked behind their backs – people resent them. Why? Because they don’t deliver the goods; yet these prima donnas have the chutzpah to pick and choose Constitutional elements to further their own self-serving needs. Niccolo Machiavelli (‘The Prince’) said it best, “It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.”
