I appreciate the tag man to let me know. Congratulations on coming to a mental place that allowed you to make an anon and wanting speak up. The more the better. I hope to see your public engagement in #MvTwitter networks on issues that r important to building a #SecularMaldives
Some areas to focus would be on issues with islam. You can start thinking about #NormalizingDissent as a vital aspect to breaking the barriers that islam has built around personal freedom. Right now as many conversations around islam can be helpful in the long run as criticism...
...of islam become commonplace. Maldives small population and high connectivity of the people on social media would allow for quick proliferation of ideas with deep penetration in to the psyche of younger people. We won't see results immediately but over time we will.
So it's important that more people add their voices and start amplifying the problems of islam as much as possible. Islam lies at the root a lot of rights violations & abuse in the country. To heal a cancer ridden body, u attack the cancer and try and remove it. Same thing here.
Then there is discussions on the politics of #SecularMaldives. Change can only come through legislation. So change can only come through political engagement. A country that allows for it's citizens to thrive will focus getting people's basic needs sorted out.
In a country of the size of Maldives w/ the natural resources that brings in large sums of tourism dollars for revenue can have significant impact to improve the lives of its citizens better than larger countries. A lot of human base layer needs can be addressed through politics.
Real and meaningful change will happen in increments. So a lot of time needs to be given to this. Engage with politicians on social media, providing secular and nonreligious and scientific perspectives on matters of politics through sustained conversation and dialogue.
Choose areas of personal interests to focus on. There are many pieces to #SecularMaldives and how it impacts people. Womens rights, childrens rights, minority rights, free education (levels up every1, equal starting point), free healthcare (frees from anxieties, piece of mind)...
...housing, jobs and economics opportunities are going to be just as important as a functioning judiciary that the people can depend on. So get engaged. We will be here for a while.
And I do mean a while. We are probably looking at keeping this #FikuryInqilab going for a long time as society gradually changes over time. This is my projection of how this may unfold. A lot of things need to happen in the meantime and we all can contribute and make an impact.
Now that trendline isn't going to be a clean smooth journey. If you zoom into it like it was some kind of a price action chart in a stock, it will have it's moments of ups and downs. As long as the upwards trajectory remains in place, do not get disheartened.
Just keep in mind #SecularMaldives movement is not an organization that has leaders or structure. It's a social movement based on ideas with individuals and groups collaborating on issues they align on. There is strength in numbers built like this.
Start your own blog, comics book, Facebook page, YouTube channel, memes, short clips, anything that can spread ideas like virus spreading contagion. Learn a bit about how network effects work and how ideas can spread.
You cannot pray for change, you can only work for it. Play your part, to amplify the important voices that speak to the issues closes to your heart. Join conversations. Get involved and get others involved only then can this process accelerate and gain momentum.
