|While a major debate is raging against proposed background
checks in America, Belarussia wasted no time in placing an
outright ban on online dating within its shores. This ban is an
interesting development for a simple reason, it clearly shows
that freedom of speech does not exist in Belarussia.
Furthermore, it shows that the government cares little about
economics, since online dating has been shown to generate
substantial income. Any wonder why people can't wait to leave
The government seems to have instituted this regulation for a
noble reason, which is to keep its citizens from migrating en
masse. However, wouldn't one say that the government is barking
up the wrong tree on the problem? The proper question to ask
would have been why Belarussians would want to leave home in the
first place. A real solution would be to fix the economy so that
people wouldn't have a reason to seek emigrating to other
countries in search of a better life.
Belarussians must feel a wave of deja vu over them once again.
In the old days of Soviet communism, Russians couldn't obtain
passports for International travel. The only way at that time to
leave the country was to get married to a foreigner. The Russian
block has broken ground since then following Mikhail Gorbachev's
effort in bringing the cold war to an end.
Belarussians have been able to travel freely to other countries,
as long as they could show they had sponsors in the destination
Unfortunately, the latest move against online dating throws
Belarussians back almost 20 years. Just when the people are
beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel, the
government changes horses in midstream.
Why is the government so alarmed about its people relocating
anyway? A good guess would be that a typical Belarussian abroad
would be able to financially assist more people back home, than
he or she could living in Belarussia.
Keeping people in a place under duress does not hold water as a
solution against emigration. As long as the imbalance between
the world economy and Belarussia's economy remains, human
osmosis would continue to occur.
