Exclamation Problems with Nobel. Harassment, protectionism, political discrimination...

The 2018 Nobel Prize for literature will not be awarded. That's the only correct solution amid scandals without number connected with abuse of women's dignity, the role of personal and commercial relations in selecting nominees, as well as political engagement of the jury in the recent years. The Swedish Academy need to restore the ruined reputation and complete the purge of the ranks before they once again take up the right to decide what can be rated among the most important cultural achievements of the humanity.

Unfortunately, this solution has one disadvantage. It means that French and Syrian poet and essayist Ali Ahmad Said Esber better known by his nom de plume Adonis will once again have no award. For at least one decade and a half he has been among the top nominees for the Nobel Prize. In 2015, Adonis was believed to be an unconditioned front-runner but the Academy delivered its verdict:

Taking into account literature merits of Adonis, as well as the moral and ethical aspects together with political standpoint for that matter, that's the most revolting thing one could imagine. A man who has devoted his life to the integration of Islamic religious and cultural heritage into European system of values appeared to be politically undesirable because 88 years ago he was born in a family of Syrian Shias who would become supporters of President Assad. Indeed, no other authoritarian regime on the planet including the one of Syria has a greater antagonist than Ali Ahmad Said Esber! All what he is doing is a challenge to evil bigotry - whether it be religious one, political or any other, which can be embodied not only in Syrian dictator but also the Nobel Committee as it turned out. The triumph of formalism that the Swedish Academy demonstrated in 2015 is by itself a dispiriting presentation to all opponents of Western civilization.

There is only hope that the flagrant injustice in point of Ali Ahmad Said will be repaired next year. However, the poet who will be soon a man of ninety may simply fail to live to see it.
