A Modern-Day Nightmare

A Modern-Day Nightmare

Two sides of Dubai

When you look up for Dubai in Youtube or the internet, you'll mostly like find two sides of the country. 

On one side, you see that it is portrayed as a paradise, bragging about its safety, cleanliness, and no tax society.

On the other side, you see that it is a hellscape filled with human rights abuse and truckloads of reasons that it is awful place to live.

Dubai Porta Potty

This is a disturbing trend that is deemed abnormal in the society, where wealthy Arab paying instagram models and other female influencers up to 1 million to defecate on their faces.

Is Dubai's Future in Peril?

Is Dubai's Future in Peril?

Like the Mongolian Empire

Mongolia is one of the largest land empires in history, Dubai's future is no different than that.

Mongolia was a city with no significant resources elevated to the wealthiest place in the space of a generation. This pattern matches Dubai's. 

Examining Dubai's glossy and vapid structures, like Burj Khalifa, which is hailed as the tallest tower in the world and many others, the country does not have great structures or creativity that can withstand the test of time. 

If these structures are left unmaintained, they'll be eaten by the desert in just a few decades.

Inception of Shaky Foundation (Pt.1)

Inception of Shaky Foundation (Pt.1)

This part talks about why Dubai's foundation as a nation lacks stability.

1. Treatment of Migrants

These impressive buildings are built by migrants, who were exploited.

  • Fake Promises

Recruitment companies promise good wages, accomodation, and goof life for their loved ones

  • High Recruitment Fees

The fees are priced at least 2,000$, which is to keep them in debt so that they are limited to escape. Once they arrived, their passports are confiscated. They live in dismal camp and 2/3 of their wages are slashed.

  • Working Rights abuse

They are not protected by labour laws with no minimum wage

2. Senseless Projects

  • Burj Khalifa

Workers were abused with labour paid less than 3 pounds/day.

However glamorous it seems, the tower lacks a proper sewage system.

  • Palm Island & The World Island

Destroying the ecosystem with the sheer amount of sand

Unsustainable, requiring constant replacement & sea defense

Abandoned World Island. It is sinking. Most of the island is filled only with sand piles.

3. Mockery of Nature

  • Lacks of green elements in the city

Initially, Dubai dedicated to grow saplings into actual trees, but was abandoned halfway, giving way to a billion-dollar project.

Why Dubai Wouldn't have Longevity?

Why Dubai Wouldn't have Longevity?

  • Dubai focuses on materialism.

Examples: Giant Hollow Sky Scrappers, Bizarre Island Projects & Luxury at all cost hotels

Treatment of Migrants:

Awful rights and living conditions & represses free thought

  • Singapore focuses on sustainable growth.

Examples: Meticulous Urban Planning, Well-orchestrated public transportation networks, abundant greenery, and innovative land use.

Treatment of Migrants

Promote fair employment practices, competitive wages, promotes continuous learning and skills upgrading, and safe & healthy working envrionment.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
