The Arabs are the most wretched people in the world today, even if they do not realize it -- A deep sense of malaise permeates every corner of the Arab world -- The Arab malaise is a period of history and it is now more acute than it was before -- Modernity was not the cause of the Arab malaise -- The Arab malaise is not the result of modernity but of modernity's collapse -- The Arabs' malaise is more a function of their geography than their history -- The worst aspect of the Arabs' malaise is their refusal to emerge from it, but, if happiness is not in sight, some form of equilibrium at least is possible
