 The Tunisian Revolution In The Eyes Of Teenagers

Tunisia, a Maghreb, peaceful and prosperous country, known for its high influx of tourists as well as for its autocratic power that seems to be unflappable, mainly because of Western support, particularly France, has just initiated another turning point in its history. But it should be noted (to be in conditional) that this prosperity would not benefit all Tunisians and tranquility would be largely due to repression, corruption and the purchase of consciousness.
Thus, we analyze the causes, advantages and disadvantages of such an upheaval in order to draw a conclusion.
The Youth has been the spearhead of this revolution; it has literally self-sacrificed to be free from a bad government policy, which was characterised with corruption, favoritism, oppression etc...
Causes of Tunisian revolution
The causes of this revolution are manifold; We quote some of which include poor governance, lack of employment, clanism in state affairs such as public procurement, corruption, dictatorship, pass-the-ways, the oligarchy, the annihilation of press freedom and the shadow of a political opposition just to mention few of them.
In sum, all of which that have direct consequences the worship of patronage, the not merit-promotion and unemployment. So also, inequality in the distribution of country resources between citizens can lead to hostilities induced by unemployment caused by lack of sufficient employments.
For the people of Tunisia, the Tunisian president throughout his unshared power, succeeded in creating a sense of fear among the population. Few days ago in Tunis, before the revolution, it is difficult for someone to pronounce even the name of the mighty Ben Ali in a street without feeling the terror in his eyes to be heard by others! It is in this unhealthy climate that the president had built a prototype of dictatorship: terror, corruption, trafficking on polls etc...
This pain that has long reached the melting point on December 17th, 2010 date by which Mr. Bouazizi, an unemployed young graduate who earned little money from his brother to establish small business in Tunis, was prohibited by policemen to exercise his new job on the pretext that he was not entitled to a dignified and honorable life.
It must be said that the revolution in Tunisia has been a great surprise. Nobody expected a popular movement in such magnitude, to a democratic aspiration as spontaneous and firm. France for example has even underestimated the extent of this popular protest by going up to offer its expertise in terms of repression of demonstrators before resigning.

in this unhealthy climate, that the president had built a prototype of dictatorship: terror, corruptBut the Tunisian revolution model has also some disadvantages for our countries: these include the loss of human life, massive displacement of populations to indefinite destination, the destruction of public and private properties, the increase in juvenile crimes, the destabilization of the already weak economy of our countries, etc. Ultimately, the country facing such revolution will again sink into poverty and, that may cause a vicious cycle of protest.

To avoid such situation, we mean revolution as experienced by Tunisian, honesty seems to be the centerpiece! The authorities on power in our countries should take adequate measures to prevent inequalities, improve the living conditions of all people who are under their governance. They must punish with honesty, apply the strict law, nothing else but the law and without exception to all citizens. They should fairly distribute the country's resources, promote grassroots development and prevent abuse of state properties by living alone (with their families) in an offending luxury face to a population ravaged by hunger and extreme poverty that is watching them every day.
