Description

In 1991, a right wing Indian group decided to choose emotions over reason and real policy, as a way of garnering popular support. This started with a call to build a temple in India where there was a mosque. The mosque was destroyed even as the temple was never built. This started the process of Islamization of Hinduism in India. A kind of collectivisation of Hindus with the Bharatiya Janata Party as its prophet. Slowly and surely, the religious right has increased its size in the parliament and have now come to rule India, under Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. There has been a long history of anti-Muslim and anti-minority sentiment in India and it has now been leveraged to provide a common, collective identity. Today, India’s is ridiculously right wing politics’ far out shadow all other politicians. Well-to-do middle class Indians have become too comfortable and have lost their moral instincts somewhere. Extra time and wealth should have resulted in a better intellectual atmosphere, but it hasn’t. There is no opposition in the country today. There is no concept of liberty in India.

  • Is it possible to reconcile Islam and libertarian ideals?    Some Muslims assert the following verse that they can be: “<span style=”color: #000000; font-family: Georgia; font-size: medium; line-height: 21.280000686645508px; text-align: justify;”>” target=”_blank”>O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.”</span>   However, numerous verses cited by both anti-Islamists and Muslims who advocate Sharia suggest the contrary.

  • I find it odd that the Libertarian candidates never touch base on this issue in their campaigns. I want all anarchists, Libertarians, Anarcho-Capitalists, ect too answer.   The photo below shows the “Great Society” leader, and the other who was accused of being a Communist insurgent shaking hands over the Voting Rights Act of 1965. I guess this photograph sums-up on what version of history one will refuse to accept, and the other which will be accepted as the “norm.”

  • In a death penalty case, do they have the “Right” to life/live, or is life considered a “Privilege”  and is thus justified in the state taking it away? I go further…Who determines if a life is a privilege or a right? Is that even possible to dictate?
