Abu Dhabi’s New Newspaper Signals A Step Toward Democracy

Abu Dhabi now has its own newspaper called The National, meaning that it has made one step further toward democracy. What the newspaper lacks though is a sense of Abu Dhabi authenticity. Globalization and the spread of democracy can be good for a people and a country, but not when a sterile sort of imitation blurs a country’s history into forget. The National might instead be the thing to help Abu Dhabi rediscover its past, not merely imitate its course toward the future.
