Ya....I believe democracy basically means government by the people, of the people, for the people, bt the people are retarded....So let us say... government by the retarded, for the retarded, of the retarded.... Lol...This is so much like my fave argument... U ask for an ice-cream, and when they give u an ice-cream, u say u don't like the flavor Remember, u din't have an ice-cream to begin with, be thankful atleast u have something now
I want a government by the people of merit....and merit is a very rare quality....and then they can give the best world to humanity, bt they are servants of the retarded politicians... Can u define Merit??? Do u mean cracking JEE or PMT exams is merit? I disagree then. And if u say, being educated makes u merit-worthy, then why don't all of us educated well-settled ppl go n join politics?
Am against the votebank politics where secularism (minoirtysm) is the only religion ...and 'antinationals' are tolerated. Nationalists are persecuted because majoirty community is unwilling to take a stand and has been divided into caste votebanks or religion base votebanks Exactly, so who's at fault...Someone who asks for vote based on a particualr common factor, or someone who votes based on that common factor instead of using his own brain. Another of my fave lines, u can take a horse to the river bank, but u can't force it to drink water, unless ofcourse the horse is itself willing to drink it
If we check the profession of the politician is the only profession which needs no qualification..... even if you want to be a plumber, some kind of qualification will be needed, some training in plumbing, some certificate.... Bt if you want to be the president of America, or India No certificate is needed.... It seems strange... Sorry Kiddo, but there are a whole set of basic requirements to be the head of any nation. Checkout NCERT's grade 9-10th Civics and Economics Texts. It lists out the basic requirements for holding various govt positions in India I would like to say if anyone want to stand for any position in the Parliment....or to become the president of the country, then he/she must have at least a Master degree or more... Without having these qualifications you cannot stand, you cannot run for the post.... Ok, so I have a Master's in Computer Science, does that make me eligible for the post of Indian Prez How will I crack a nuclear deal, maybe by creating another wikileaks right? Politics is a different track of studies, you can get master's and doctorates in learning game theories and strategies, but what you need to do to make a decision can only be learned from experience. And don't u think, we need to provide resources to the lower sections of the society too, so that they can be eligible for running for the office as per ur criteria One more of my fave lines (damn, so many)... The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer that rule should be there and we shld make grades of voters.... for the state government, Minimum +2 pass, for the county, 10th pass... How can I trust living in a country where no one is even ready to here what I have to say. I am lucky my parents were well-off to do, and they could afford to send me to school. But what would I be doing, had they been poor enough that they needed my help to make our ends meet. Which would mean I would have to skip school and work somewhr... I won't have voted ever, and how would I put forward my point to someone who discriminated against me just bcoz I din't have a high school degree? Acceptance is the key, we need to accept everyone and treat everyone equally... I would like people of merit, geniuses, to manage the world and things would be totally different. People of merit do hold the key to a successful nation, but how many of these ppl are actually interested in standing up for what they feel? How many would like to get down into the marshy waters and dirty themselves? Why is our 9-5 job and a monthly paycheck more important to us...? Forget all this, how many of these actually go back and vote?
Anyways...Long post... Sorry guys, u all can skip reading it. I call this side-effects of not having ur boss arnd at work
Anyways, with this I am heading out for today...Might poke in my head every once in a while
See u all later
