Thoughts on economics and liberty

Let us thank our corrupt parliamentarians, and blame ourselves. Anything else will be sheer hypocrisy

There has been, once again, a great amount of breast-beating about our parliamentarians.

My views, from my FB comments:

Our tragedy is that we have too many "super-smart", "super-honest" people who are fit only to criticise but to never SHOW others how things are to be done. Our problem is our Kiran Bedis and the like. Not our MPs. The country would be doomed if we only had Kiran Bedis and the like.

My view is very clear – that India SURVIVES as a single nation purely because of our democracy, and because our parliamentarians, despite their weaknesses, are committed to peaceful change. These parliamentarians need not be worshipped. They can be criticised and should be. But at all times it must be acknowledged that it is these people who have held India together and taken it this far. Give credit where it is due.

These people are not responsible for the PATHETIC educated class of India that can't come together and fight them at the hustings. 

99 per cent of India's failure lies with the educated classes who SIMPLY HAVE NO ABILITY TO WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Since December 2007, when FTI was formed, we have barely managed to get more than 100 people together, and many have become defunct. The educated LACK THE BASIC DISCIPLINE to make a difference. They DON'T COUNT.

Why blame MPs??? 

Look in the mirror. The problem is staring in your face!

    ….99 per cent of India’s failure lies with the educated classes who SIMPLY HAVE NO ABILITY TO WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE….

    A 100 like for this comment Sanjeev. Our problem is our educated class. They don’t like politics. I always wondered what can kind of a wretched generation is this. They are the group who benefitted maximum from our democracy, and the moment they realize that they are well off, they jump out of politics. In the last loksabha election, while waiting for my turn to cast the vote, I was looking at all those people who came there for voting. I couldn’t see any people from the IT crowd there. I was looking at the people there with great awe. They are the people who finds it difficult to meet their two ends meet. But they cast their votes regularly and makes Indian democracy work. And the educated class sits at home and crib everything about India.

    ” …99% of India’s failure lies with the educated classes ..” is a strange comment! Because edu people did not join your cause does not mean they do not care or not work together on issues that interest them! May be, you ought to look within to see why not many people coming forward to join your platform instead of indicting “99% of educated people”!

    Dear Gopi

    I’d like to be enlightened about ANYTHING of significance that these 99 per cent are doing in terms of “issues that interest them”.

    All I see is TOTAL neglect of the governance of the nation, little realising that both must go together. Maybe I’m blind, but I’ve not met such fantastic people in India yet. Happy to be shown.

    What Gopi is saying that, the educated people are doing their bit to improve social degradation. They are doing by staying outside of the system anonymously.
    What Gopi is not understanding is the old adage of “Panchtantra”, that “it is easy to break a single stick, but not the bundle of the same single stick individually together”.
