Do we have Honesty even in DisHonesty?

Dear Fellow Citizens of the World,

Scams galore, from time immemorial. What is wrong with our society?

We do not have Honesty even in our DisHonesty!!

We like to find scapegoats in every action, if caught. If not caught, we are all goody, goody.

The case of Food-for-Oil scam is just one example.

The world has to turn a new leaf. If this should happen, we need to ban the currency circualtion, which has become our Frankenstien Monster, out to devour human society.

Currency, as a medium of exchange was convenient, no doubt. But it has come to make us so greedy, many people die of greed of accumulating wealth, the wrong way.

Corruption has multiplied N times at all levels of society. Governments are corrupt. Leaders are corrupt. Politicians are corrupt. Middlemen are corrupt. Bureaucrats are corrupt. Judiciary is corrupt. Law enforcing agencies are corrupt. Businessmen are corrupt. Educational institutions are corrupt. Religious organizations are corrupt. The whole society is corrupt.

We want to find shortcuts in every activity of life. We do nt want to go thro' the normal education channel. We want to get first class without studying hard. We want to get a job, without knowing anything. We want to get promoted, over and above others, without knowing anything. We want high salry and high perks, because we want to enjoy life. At the same time, we do not want to work hard, as we want to enjoy life again.

So much of diry water has flown over the generations, the "Get quick rich mania" has overtaken the human race. Our thousands of years well meaning forefathers culture has stripped us of all huamn values, not even animal values, unfortunately.

We do not have a level playing field. We have created all inequalities in the name of race, sex, religion, language, etc. We are a hypocritic human race, bereft of any shame, except to prove we are one up on the other, by hook or crook.

I am ashamed to call myself an educated elite, as I display every minute, inner barbaric symptoms, to finish off all others and survive alone. Lest how will we describe all the tensions around the globe? Do men and women rest in peace anywhere in the world? They are in constant fear - fear of the State, fear of terrorists, fear of rich, fear of poor, fear of elite, fear of downtrodden, etc.

The divide is only widening, day be day, in leaps and bounds. And every opportunity is used by society to increase the divide, in the name of bridging the divide. ICT is one such tool, that would certainly finish off the human race, unless, it can be controlled, like TNT, which can be used for both useful and harmful purposes!!

Lte us try to eschew all forms of divide and build a better world free of all isms and man made divisions. Self Administration of people, by people, for people and not politically manged is what is required to transform communities and society.

Transforming lives

It is a tragedy in India, after 58 years of independence, the voter is
yet to be uniquely identified. We do not have a unique Citiezn ID, to
say the least.

All this is because of our present form of democracy, which is
actually hypocrisy, followed by most citizens and political parties.

If we have to break-away from these shackles of hypocrisy, we need to
have unique identity for every citizen from birth to death, ban
currency circulation, and make all transactions transparent on the
web, thro' unique bank account for every individual and organization,
including govt. with no exception.

This will automatically transform our democracy, alleviate India from
its forced poverty, which we the citizens have ensured, remains,
depite the progress, India has made in all its spheres of life.

There should be no permanent employment with the Govt. or other
organizations and entrepreneurship should be the mantra for produivity
and result based performance. All citizens must have equitable
opportunity. There shall be no distinction of sex, religion, caste,
creed, etc. This alone can transform our democracy and India.
