This is merely a survival technique rather than a celebrated culture. We're a people with no one identity constantly being screwed over by megalomaniacs, with barely enough to survive and with no horizon in sight. We try to be the "best" because that's all we have. The culture you talk about is not that of ignorant mindless arrogance (maybe in some cases) but that of an inherited and learned sense of pride that has allowed us to shine when we've gotten the chance to go to AUB and Georgetown.

I see where you're coming from As3ad and it makes sense. I interpret that you are saying that the Lebanese culture tends to view anything as second best as subordinate.

And this best/worst scenario has led to yes, a heavy and deep racist culture. I know Lebanese people who pride themselves on having coloured eyes and light skin and got degrees from the best university etc. etc.

But we all know that many rich cultures do the exact same thing.

But really, the big issue with the Lebanese (and every other stinkin'group who are arrogantly nationalistic) is seperating cultural values from the Natural God given principal of equality and humility.

When we, as the Lebanese have mastered that Jame3an, than maybe people will see as an example of the best without us even mentioning it.

(isn't is so screwed up when people pride themselves on the eye colour???)

start belligerating Italians, Spanish and other neighbouring Arab country prior to commencing with your muddish talk about Lebanese customs. It is fact, we always want the best. La Rochefoucald once said "To succeed in the world, we do everything we can to appear successful." This is around all around the world including Lebanon.

you're the BEST and don't let anybody tell you anything different, I'm sure your mother tells you this over the phone daily. I'm sure that she says to the 'jara': "yo'borni ass'aad azka sabi wmen zegherto sawragi!"

i can assure you that you're the BEST fake sociologist to theorize about Lebanon. You read into social patterns and analyze them with the wit and insight expected of a potato head (hence your constant reference to potatoes).
