Here is how a democratic government works, or how the U.S. democratic government is working Well, it is not a sarcasm, the U.S political decay is certainly promising to rob the rich and to provide free services for poor. Why the hell is this right? Well it is not right. But hey, even this is contradictory. Governments throughout the world ten to protect corporations while the same governments do everything to rob the individual. Corporates somehow, seems to be sacrosanct for the governments. How easy it was for the government to provide those huge stimulus and bailout amounts for those defaulting and wasteful corporates? They never thought about the common man and the burden the US economy will face due to that stimulus given to the sure faulty and worthless corporates. And now, the government faces Bankruptcy and to delay it a little, the government proposes a furthermore burden of debt again on the tax payers. It obviously is ridiculous, the idea of government is ridiculous.
One of the moral questions that arise whenever we talk about liberty and self-ownership is the liberation of science from the grips of the state or the government. The common belief is; state helps in creating new things and improving the scientific technology. However, it is a false claim and often it has been observed that the private sector is the working horse behind technology and innovation, and this is true for science. On the other hand, the public sector produces nothing and charges us large for it. Well, it was a hyperbole, but I understand how much more efficient private sector is as opposed to public sector. It is not very difficult to explain and express. Let us take the examples of public sector in India which includes electricity and water supply to their houses. Telephones were also public sector services till 1991 and during that period only rich and very few people could afford telephones. How can we forget the special STD PCO booths far away from our houses where we used to visit to call to someone …Read the Rest
The government is a coercive force that exists by means of taxes. It is not very difficult to define or understand taxes, taxes are robbery, there is nothing voluntary about taxes and there is nothing morally good about paying taxes. Yet, government claims that if one doesn’t pay his/her taxes, than he/she is criminal, a thief or tax-evader and such a person must be punished. But what is a tax? A tax is that share of your honestly hard earned money that government assumes that it has a right on it because it actually allowed you to work and earn that money. Now this is ridiculously coercive and exploitative, but such is the world in which we live. We cannot earn without paying a charge for earning and this charge is tax. Now do you realize why a government is no better than the underworld mafia? Yes, even they try to extort money from peaceful hard working people. While government and the underworld mafia work the same, government cannot accept competition from the mafia and hence, it tries to curb …Read the Rest
Everybody knew that lokpal bill or Janlokpal bill will reduce civil liberties and hence some of us tried to oppose it. It was good. However, we all of us also know that much more than the Janlokpal bill, the UID will affect our lives. We aren’t in governmental sector, most of us doesn’t belong to Big industrialist families, obviously, Janlokpal or lokpal isn’t going to affect our lives directly (however, it may reduce the speed of governmental works, but then, it is certainly good, the less the government works, the better it is) But almost every second person/Indian citizen will be hugely affected by UID, everyone of us will lose our civil liberties and will certainly face a danger of Identity crisis. We know a huge amount of money is being wasted in this ridiculously tyrannical idea of Government yet, there is hardly any voice against UID in general and on Face book in particular. We know UID is the making of an Orwellian world where the Big Brother will have complete control on our yet secluded life. So why …Read the Rest
