How can Indians possibly believe that MMS is upright?
I have long argued that anyone who joins the corrupt gang commonly known as Congress Party (or, indeed, any other major political outfit in India), is to be deemed to be corrupt.
The idea that someone can be upright but actively support a gang of crooks is untenable. It boggles belief that, for instance, that MMS did not know at the time of joining Congress that the entire Congress operation runs on black money, money stolen from government contracts, and from direct bribes for favours to be performed. This fact is common knowledge within the entire government apparatus.
As an ordinary bureaucrat privy to a number of conversations (and incidents which pointed straight to the top!) with politicians and their advisers, and others who had first hand knowledge of them, even I KNEW this to be the case. The circumstantial evidence was overwhelming. The logic why this is happening is also straight forward (electoral expenses being the key reason).
Had I, in 2000, decided to join a mainstream political party (and thus forgo all my self-respect) I would have almost certainly become a senior Cabinet minister by now. I might even have maintained an image as an upright man. But that would have been a FALSE image. I would have cheated no one but myself. But MMS, hungry for power and perks, did not have any reservations about joining this gang.
Too long I have heard that MMS is upright but that people around him are not.
How can that be!
How can anyone claim to be upright as a Prime Minister and now know precisely what is going around him. By joining such Congress, by not speaking out against this gang of thugs (who have looted the country in a bigger way than anyone else in India's history), MMS is FULLY complicit in the crimes being conducted on a daily basis by the Congress party.
MMS was never particularly competent. He NEVER had a clear theory of the state nor of the significance of human freedom. A minor thinker, he had the fortune of taking certain 'decisions' that were forced upon India by the IMF. Not merely a minor thinker, he is spineless, and I would argue deeply involved since he has clearly been running after position and perk, not after India's interests, and not after truth.
Indians are very gullible. All kinds of petty magicians deceive them into thinking that they are 'God'. In this case MMS has made a BIG fool out of Indians, by pretending to be upright.
The same Indians keep 'hoping' that Rahul Gandhi will be honest.
Forget it! Stop dreaming.
Please start THINKING. Stop believing.
The cause is bad policy that makes corruption inevitable. The bad policies must be eradicated. The Freedom Team of India is assembling leaders who will offer to do this for India. Then, and only then, will India know what honesty means. Read FTI's Code of Conduct.
