Far too many journalists and media outlets have fallen prey to the sensationalist “game of thrones” narrative, reporting the recent arrests in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a power grab intended to secure the throne for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). Analysts will try their best to figure out the proximity to power of each of the detainees, which include some very high-profile names and one particularly colorful character, exhausting the global coverage. The prevailing narrative outside the Kingdom is that something big has happened, something that some people are already calling a political and economic “earthquake.” Words to describe this week’s events in Saudi Arabia included the phrases “mayhem”, “chaos” and “upheaval”. But in Saudi, the people are noting the new era of equality, a welcomed development and a key to achieving the stated goals of vision 2030 through more transparency and equality in the eyes of the law.
