Another struggle for independence

Another struggle for independence

It’s hard to accept but our blood sucking politicians are a reflection of our collective attitude and mindset. We ought to stop accepting abuse of power and anarchy. A second “struggle” for freedom is needed—one that frees us from our own apathy, cowardice and passivity. Only when we’re freed this way can we ever become free from the greed of the current crop of politicians.

No difference between politicians and terrorists

No difference between politicians and terrorists

Most politicians are no better than the terrorists. The only difference between terrorists and politicians is that while terrorists are victims of a kind, politicians are in fact the victimisers.

Spare a moment to think about the modus operandi of terrorists: their primary means of achieving their goals is to identify the vulnerability of the people and then exploit it. In the case of the Mumbai attack, the terrorists studied every vulnerable aspect of Mumbai and then used each of them effectively to terrorise us.

Our politicians too use every opportunity to exploit the people of the country. The vote-bank politics is a case-in-point. When BJP uses the Hindutva card, it is exploiting our country’s vulnerabilities. When MNS chief Raj Thakeray provokes Marathis against the north-Indians in Mumbai, he is very effectively misusing the susceptibility of the average unemployed Marathi residents of Maharashtra.

Every single politician in the country has consistently abused the vulnerabilities of the common man to their advantage. Then, can you see the similarity between terrorists and politicians?
