You just have to get a bunch of tweets by some prominent politicians that there will be unrest and, boom, you get an internet ban.
He's been reading tweets from Kashmiri politicians on how abrogation of Article 370 would not be accepted in #JammuAndKashmir as well as tweets by Pakistani politicians & people advocating secession of J&K and even violence, to justify this. @TheQuint@twitter.com
I do support the right of all political leanings to exist, save the Nazis perhaps. No single formulation can represent everyone out there, best is the balance of numerous imperfections than an attempted singular perfection that will fail.
The best systems empower with adequate oversight and checks and balances.
The best frameworks allow for measurement, transparency and a feedback loop that results in changes from it all.
We have no business fighting wars. We should be saving the planet.
I prefer freer and competitive markets, but the government has to provide for education and healthcare at cheap rates for those who cannot afford the private versions of it. Those two, along with easy access to information, are transformational factors in societies and they represent the most fair way to bring about social justice.
Women, aged and margnialized groups such as LGBT need to be given special consideration and protection till the point we don't need refer to them being any different
The end result was someone who had a healthy stream of skepticism for all political formulations, but had a strong preference for providing a extra leg-up for the marginalized.
Where it stands now is that I am a strong federalist. I do not think big centralized economies are good. Even more so for countries like India that have such diverse populations and needs.
I prefer simple lower tax rates, that incentivize compliance than high rates and a focus on punishment as the incentive.
The world I would like to see:
First, a bit of background. I was born in a state that had a strong leftist leaning & a very very strong socialist setup. Family had more than enough of left & right, rabid and moderate.
I grew up not being enamoured by either. The left was quite violent and that was hard to overlook. The right was not too far behind either where violence was concerned, but I could not agree with their policies or politics.
As an adolescent, I was probably a centrist.
One of my earliest fascinations to die at the altar of reality was to travel a lot on work. Months of living out of a suitcase, being home once in a couple of weeks, was nothing like what I felt it would be like.
Traveling for non-work stuff. Well, that's something else. Don't think I can get enough of that. But it's also become mostly a privilege affair. I do occasionally share as a force of habit. But it's just nicer to enjoy it without sharing it.
Just an old man shouting at the clouds in his head.
