On Coercion

Foreign reports in the New York Times could as well be works of fiction, but I found a couple of recent articles to be interesting nonetheless. [1], [2]. Interesting in a very dark sense. I am trying to figure, how the system got to the point where it is and how it manages to operate against such obvious motivations. With a carrot and stick of reputation it is claimed. How lame can that be? Seriously! There has to be something more tangible than that at work; which, I am sure, will never show up on the pages of the New York Times, ever.

    The separation between the sexes in Saudi Arabia is so extreme that it is difficult to overstate.
    Damn ’em Sauds. Times tried its best to exaggerate but I guess Sauds beat them every damn time. Hmm, Saud reminds me of Rahul Mehta. God, am I a pervert or what?
