Anthony Weiner Could Have Almost Touched His Women!
One can only feel great admiration and respect for the courage and poise with which Huma Abedin is facing the tempest raised by her husband’s misdemeanor at a time of extreme vulnerability, as a woman who is in to the third month of pregnancy.
I wish her well and hope she will continue to be strong and be able to see through this crisis together with her husband, as a couple. After all, their relationship and interfaith marriage are proof enough that the couple has great power of introspection and great strength to live by their conviction, leaving enough space for each other.
However rather than die out with the public confessions Anthony Weiner has done so far, with additional material released and being circulated on the internet and media, the storm seems to be only intensifying, with the clamour for his resignation becoming more and more loud.
To a great extent, the revulsion is subjective, by a society conditioned to feel the indignation, perhaps rightfully, at the material they come to see rather than at the fact that a responsible elected representative produced and caused its release to the public domain, so irresponsibly.
Not withstanding this, one has to take an objective view of how the whole world has come to use the internet and social networks so lightly and casually, with much less inhibition, and more openness, safe in the feeling of its inherent impunity absent from printed and visual media, thanks to ever advancing technologies.
