The End Of Mahabharata War

In Railway, they say that systems are so designed that accidents are impossible till one person commits a series of mistakes, or many people commit mistakes at the same time.
Shakuni avenged the injustice he perceived was done against his sister. But could he have done that had Dhritarashtra not at the same time been carrying his own grudge? Could they both have succeeded had Duryodhan been not so receptive to their poison?
And could all three have succeeded if the “good” men, Bhishma, Drona, Vidur did not have such misplaced notions of duty and loyalty? Could they have succeeded if Yudhisthira had not been so eager to sweep deeds of Duryodhan under the carpet to maintain peace all along?
The holocaust called Mahabharata was in the making for a long time, and chiefly because the good men were avoiding to look problem squarely into the eye. They in fact took to appeasing the thugs, and the thugs continued to grow, both in their strength and in their demands.
And sense of victimhood is the biggest evil. Dhritarashtra was still a prince, even if blind. He was just one step removed from the throne, and on the throne was his own loving brother. His blindness was not world’s fault. It was just a fact. Likewise, Gandhari herself chose to accept the offer of marriage to him. What exactly was Shakuni avenging? And the only appeasement Yudhisthira could have done fruitfully, only time his generosity could have averted the disaster was when he could have passed Crown of the prince to Duryodhan when Yudhisthira was first made crown prince. Only at that time, this master of all appeasers did not think to appease.
All Hindus drink Mahabharata in their mothers’ milk. Yet, even today, all Hindus replay exactly the same mistakes, frame by frame, scene by scene, with exactly the same consequences. Like they are just actors on stage, still reenacting Mahabharata, and ironically, to themselves as the audience.
Life is actually very simple, and unimaginably beautiful. Do not carry victimhoods in your head. Do not appease. Do not avoid calling out the wrong when you see it. And avoid the professional rescuers, the ones who are in the business of rescuing the victims.
There is only one injustice in the world: holding somebody slave, using violence to control others’ lives. We are the luckiest generations, born when slavery is gone. And violence is unfortunately still present only because we are trying to appease the professional victims, or being Duryodhan to the professional rescuers, the present day Shakunis.
And who exactly are the professional victims and the professionals rescuers? Well, if you have been reading me, I am sure you know. And if you don’t know, you must devote some time and find out. Because both come in many layers of disguise, which only your genuine curiosity can penetrate. Making answers easy to the two biggest evils of the present age will be real injustice to you.

बिचौलिये, The Middlemen

वामपंथी दुनिया के सबसे कमीने ठग होते है।

दुनिया में बहुत सारे phenomenon, तथ्य एक साथ विद्यमान होते है। ग़रीबी, अमीरी, किसान, व्यापार, उद्योगपति, अत्याचार, बेरोज़गारी, धर्म, राजशाही, लोकतंत्र, स्त्रियों पर अत्याचार, युवाओ की आवारागर्दी, युवाओ में नशा। लेकिन इनमें आपस में कोई सम्बंध ही हो ये आवश्यक नहीं होता, या इनमें से कोई एक किसी दूसरे का परिणाम हो आवश्यक नही होता, लेकिन वामपंथी वो ठग होता है जो किसी भी समस्या को किसी भी तथ्य का परिणाम बता सकता है, व समस्या को उजागर कर रहा है तो साथ में ये दावा भी कर सकता है उसके पास समस्या का हल है। अधिकतर लोग जीवनयापन में व्यस्त होते है। उन्हें ये सुनना अच्छा लगता है कि उनकी बुरी अवस्था के लिए वे उत्तरदायी नहीं है। उन्हें ये भी अच्छा लगता है कि किसी ने समस्या उठायी तो, तो ये कुछ तो करेगा ही। और उन्हें सबसे अच्छा तो ये लगता है कि बिना कुछ किए, घर बैठे उन्हें वो अम्बानी की संपत्ति में हिस्सा मिलने वाला है।फिर वो primitive अवधारणा जो हमारे मस्तिष्क में कही गहरे बैठे हुई है कि कार्य का मतलब है अंगो का हिलना डुलना।

तो वामपंथी आता है, आपको बताता है कि किसान फसल उगाता है, आप पैसे देते हो, लेकिन बीच में बिचौलिया, middleman कहाँ से आ गया? इसको हटा दे तो तुम्हें सस्ती सब्ज़ी मिलेगी। यही वो किसान को कहता है कि अगर बिचौलिये को हटा दे उसकी सब्ज़ी महँगी बिकेगी।मार्क्स को व उसकी संतानो को आज तक ये समझ में नहीं आया कि व्यापारी की आय आती कहाँ से है। बच्चे की तरह puzzled है ये लोग, कि मस्त बैठा हुआ ये व्यक्ति (व्यापारी) उत्पादक से अधिक धनी क्यूँ है।रहस्य नहीं है कुछ। व्यापारी वस्तु की उपलब्धता का समय व स्थान बदल देता है। उसके इसी कार्य effort से उसकी कमाई आती है। गेहूं किसान के खेत में उसके गाँव में एप्रिल मई के महीने में harvest होता है लेकिन आपको वो पूरे साल बाज़ार में दुकान पर मिलता है। इसी सुविधा को देने से व्यापारी का धन आता है। ये काम आप भी कर सकते है। लेकिन फिर आप व्यापारी हो जाएँगे व वामपंथी आपको दुष्ट बताएगा। ये काम किसान भी कर सकता है लेकिन वो भी फिर किसान नहीं रहेगा व्यापारी बन जाएगा व वामपंथी का दुश्मन हो जाएगा।

इसीलिए या तो आप या किसान स्वयं व्यापारी बन जाए, या चुप अपना काम करे।आप व्यापारी बनेंगे तो आप को पता चलेगा कि व्यापारी का जीवन वो नहीं है जो आपको दूर से दिखता है। आपने लगाया हिसाब के पूरा मोहल्ला आप से अनाज लेगा, और किसान से उतना अनाज ले आए। अगले सप्ताह बग़ल में एक दूसरी भी अनाज की दुकान खुल गयी व उसने मुनाफ़ा थोड़ा कम कर बेचना आरम्भ कर दिया। आपका पूरा स्टॉक रखा रह गया। या इस वर्ष एक नया घुन आया और आपके स्टॉक को खा गया। या बाढ़ आयी, आपके गोदाम में पानी भर गया व अनाज बेकार हो गया।

सहकारी, cooperative? आप कहेंगे कि किसान सहकारी संस्था बनाकर स्वयं बेचे। फिर वे भी व्यापारी हो जाएँगे न, किसान नहीं रहेंगे। जो समस्याये आपके सामने आयी है, वो सब उनके सामने भी आएँगी। बहुत सहकारी संस्थान बन चुके है। या तो घाटे में जाकर बंद हो गए, या सरकारी सब्सिडी या सरकारी price control के द्वारा पल रहे है।देश में केवल एक cooperative है जो सफलतापूर्वक चल रहा है: Amul. लेकिन उसे चलाने वाले किसान नहीं है, professionals है। किसान उसके सदस्य अवश्य है। और उसे चलता देख नौकरशाहों ने उसे क़ब्ज़ाने के बहुत प्रयास किए, लेकिन कूरीयन के कारण असफल हो गए। अमूल में किसानो के बेटे ही नौकरी करते है कर्मचारी स्तर पर। वामपंथीयो ने उनसे भी कई बार हड़ताल करवायी।फिर नौकरशाहों ने कहा कि हम भी अमूल खड़े कर सकते है। अन्य प्रदेशों में किए। उनके सारे डेयरी cooperative घाटे में चल रहे है, टैक्स के पैसे पर जीवित है।

ऐसे ही बैंक भी वामपंथी की समझ में नहीं आते है। आपको कहता है कि पैसा आपका है, मज़े ये बैंक वाले कर रहे है। बैंक वास्तव में उन दो लोगों का मिलन करवाते है जिनमें एक के पास पैसा है व दूसरे के पास उद्योग का विचार है या अन्य कोई आवश्यकता है। आप कहेंगे कि आप सीधे उसे देंगे, बैंक बीच में कमाई क्यूँ करे। दीजिए, दीजिए। दीजिए ना। जिस दिन वापिस आए पैसा, मुझे फ़ोन अवश्य करिएगा। बैंक वास्तव में रिस्क आपके सिर से उतारकर अपने सिर लेता है व उसी का पैसा कमाता है।

वामपंथी नाम के infantile ठग को सुनना बंद करिए। अर्थव्यवस्था एक self evolving सिस्टम है। सदैव ये least पॉसिबल cost में ही आप तक सामान पहुँचाती है। केवल एक कारक इससे महँगा कर सकता है वस्तुओ को आप के लिए: हिंसा। हिंसा ही अर्थव्यवस्था को least cost point से डिस्टर्ब कर सकती है। हिंसा व्यापारी नहीं रोक सकता। वो राजा का काम है। राजा ऐसा चुनिए जो हिंसा न होने दे व हिंसा करने वाले को दंड दे सके, जो वचन पालन सुनिश्चित कर सके। अपनी सामाजिक व राजनीतिक समस्याओ का ठीकरा अर्थव्यवस्था या व्यापारी के सिर पर मत फोड़िए।

The Fraud Called Labour “Exploitation”

“Exploitation” is the most exploited word of English language. Exploited by the Leftist thugs.

There is only one kind of “work” that can be called exploitation: bonded labour. Labour where man is forced to work against his will, and is paid whatever the one forcing him to work is ready to pay. Forcing requires violence, and if violence is present in the transaction, it is not market, it is not trade, it is not employer-employee relationship, it is a criminal enterprise, a mafia operation.

Excluding above, there is no exploitation in the world. One man offers a work, declares the wage, and pays the wage he declared after the piece of the work is complete, or after the hours of work are complete (as agreed in the beginning as to what will constitute as the completion of the transaction), then it is a clean, honest trade; not exploitation.

As for the wage itself, nobody in the world knows what is a just wage. NOBODY. It is a psychological phenomenon, and like all things psychological, defies quantification. In general, employer is always in search of those who can do the work for less than what he is paying now, and employees are always complaining that they deserve more. Even Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, may well be unsatisfied with his package, for all I know.

So, the bad news: Bad news is that our wage can be only that below which nobody else is ready to do the same work. You should read it twice: our wage can be only that below which nobody else is ready to do the same work.

So what does then the fraud called “minimum wage” mandated by government mean? Answer: same as bonded labour. Government is violence. It has guns, it has handcuffs, it has jail. So it can mandate anything it likes. But it can not mandate Economics to disappear. Nor arithmetic can be made to disappear by using guns. So what happens when a government announces minimum wages is that all the businesses whose products fail to sell in the market if the enhanced wage component is added to their cost, such businesses are simply shut down. Labour is just a means to an end, not an end in itself (that is why MNREGA is the biggest fraud ever conceived by man). The end is a product that is sold in the market. The producer, unlike government, has no guns. He has customers. If they are not ready or able to pay the new price, the producer goes out of business, with the unsold stock as the loss. And, many new businesses, whose products are unlikely to sell with the enhanced cost component of the mandated wages, are never started. So, unemployment ensues. That is, government violence has exactly the same effect as the gangster violence: it destroys the economy and creates unemployment.

So, if you feel you are being exploited, do anything, but do not seek the help of the Leftist. He will get his scotch and his Pushpa, and you will lose your job.

If you feel you are being exploited, you either try to look for a better paying job, try to get new skills, try to start a new business yourself, start with hawking if nothing else. Or take the train back to village. If all land there was sold by you or your father, use savings to buy some land. Buy buffaloes also. They will give you milk. Grow your food, grow your own cotton. Weave your own cloth. Construct your own home. Mud house or a straw hut, if you can not afford bricks. And lo, voila, nobody is exploiting you.

Tough? May be, but true. Nature did not make you born with the Right to a job with the wages you like. There are no “Rights” in nature. Rights are just our construct, products of our imagination. Some charlatan, some thug, some liar may come and tell you that government has a duty to give you job. But the ghost called government is again only our imagination. In reality, it is just another bunch of human beings given jobs by us for the tasks assigned to them at the wages we announced to them and which we pay. They have no jobs lying in their cupboards to which you have right. And they can not create the jobs. Even their jobs were created by us when we decided to constitute a government for ourselves. You may vote out any number of governments you want, they may even start frauds like MNREGA, but they can not give you job, they can only end up bankrupting themselves if they try to give you job, as MNREGA is bankrupting Indian government.

Your only choice is to chase away the Leftist from your country, force the government to completely free the economy, and slowly, your wages will start rising. More and more businesses will open, they will compete to hire you, and they will raise the wages on offer in the competition.

Not acceptable to you? Your choice, your freedom. I have no guns to force to do what I am suggesting. But then be ready to live in poverty, unemployment, and progressive decline. The wheel of Economics will continue to turn mercilessly, heartlessly. Economics is not afraid of your ally the Leftist thug and his guns. Economics did not fear even the nukes of Stalin. Stalin disappeared, not Economics. You can either ride the wheel of Economics and become ever richer, or get crushed by it.

The Labour Day: The Attack Of The Primitive

The primitive societies could not visualise that anything can be work other than hunting and gathering. Both involve muscle. Though actually both involved mind more than muscle. If only muscles were needed for even hunting and gathering, Homo Sapiens stood just no chance. Even the monkeys would thrash us anyday.

But the primitive mind could only see moving limbs, it could not even know that what was guiding and seeing the limbs move was mind. So it engraved on its genes that the work meant only the moving limbs.

This genetic encoding has resulted into untold misery and millions upon millions of deaths. We still are not able to visualise the work as anything other than limbs moving. But only limbs moving gave us only kills and fruits both obtained with great struggle against the competitors. Even the cooking of the kill was the doing of the mind. And then growing of the fruits we liked, many of which later became “crops,” was purely the plan of the mind.

So everything up from the kills after great chases and the wild fruits is doing of the mind, not of limbs, not of labour. Mind makes steel, not limbs, and mind assembles that steel into a car, not limbs. Everything up from the kills and wild fruits is the division of labour, and the division of the labour is purely a doing of the mind. Human mind. And only mind can do valuation of the doings of the mind. No muscles can evaluate the output of a mind. And the division of labour and capacity to assign values to the products of this division is what we call modern industrial society. In fact Civilisation was always this only: division of labour and valuation of the resultant products. Industrial age is just the addition of machines to it, machines, again a creation of mind.

But the genetic encoding continues. We idolise limbs, and we curse the mind as the exploiter. We idolise workers, and we demonise as exploiters the minds who organise activities that engage those workers. Without those minds, the workers will not remain “unexploited,” they will in fact not remain even workers. They will have to become hunter gatherers again.

So on this “Labour Day,” disinfect your mind. Disinfect your language. And teach the workers that “work” isn’t movement of limbs. Work is the mind in use, not only moving the limbs, but also creating the opportunities which make it possible for the limbs to move at the levers of a machine, at the buttons of a cockpit, at the keyboard of a computer, most of these now air conditioned, instead of the limbs moving in chase of a hard-to-get deer.

If you could cure human mind of this cancer that makes “worker” not only a separate entity of limbs and no mind, but a separate species that is supposed to rule Homo Sapiens, no questions asked, you would have actually served the Labour. If you could exorcise the ghost called “Leftist” from the minds of the “workers,” you would truly liberate mankind from all exploitations.

How The Things Are Priced

First, prices are always relative. We value article say 1 more than we value article 2 and some other person values article 1 less than he values article 2. They will exchange the goods till their total valuations become more than they were before exchange. Prices are the point at which total valuations become equal for both the individuals.

Let us recall Ricardo’s Law of Comparative Advantage

Ricardo’s law was framed for international trade, but it is equally true for two individuals also.

Suppose there are two persons A and B. A produces 10 pieces of Article 1 in one day and produces 8 pieces of article 2 in one day.

B produces 4 pieces of article 1 in one day and 7 pieces of article 2 in one day.

Both work for two days and each produces both articles.

A = 10 and 8

B= 4 and 7

Total article 1= 14, article 2=15 Total production 29 pieces

At the end of two days, A will have 10(1)+8(2)= 18 articles and his satisfaction is S1A
At the end of two days, B will have 4(1)+7(2)=11 articles and his satisfaction is S1B
If they divide the production and on both days A produces only article 1 and B produces only article 2

Then A= 10+10= 20

B= 7+7= 14

Total production 34 articles(>29). If they so divide the articles that A has x(1)+y(2)=z articles and his satisfaction is S2A and B has a(1)+b(2)=c and his satisfaction is S2B (with the condition that a+x is 20 and y+b is 14 and c+z=34). Then they will exchange their products in a ratio (that is, values of x,y,a,and b) will be such that S2A>S1A and S2B>S1B and the number of 1 with respect to 2 is their relative price (that is, how many 2s A wants for his 1s and how many 1s B wants for his 2s (and prices are always relative.) This is the only basis of prices. Prices of even large number of goods with large number of persons in the markets are arrived through this process only, though to a casual observer prices may seem pre-existing.

The two persons working together have become more productive (34>29), that is, productivity per capita has increased for the society of these two persons as a whole.

So, the total production has increased by the division of labour. This happened even though A was more productive in both the articles than B. This holds true for two individuals, two households, two villages, two cities, or two countries, and for very large number of commodities and for large number of individuals. Total production will always increase when each produces only what he is better at among his various skills, instead of producing everything himself.

Division of labour assumes that production of each of them is safe, and they are free to trade, because they will need to trade their produce and buy what they do not produce themselves. And this freedom includes deciding the prices, that is how many of 1s will be exchanged with how many of 2s.

Cities always continue to grow in size because they facilitate division of labour. Trade is essential because only it makes division of labour possible.

And you can see that S1A and S2A and S1B and S2B are subjective, therefore no bureaucrat can ever decide price, and if he uses government’s gun to do so, S1A and S2A and S1B and S2B will be different from what the individuals wanted, and therefore their satisfaction will be different from what they wanted and hence their production will start decreasing and will eventually reduce to subsistence levels. This is borne out by the decline of all government-price controlled economies.

It is also clear that B can’t insist that he will produce article 1 and not 2. So each individual is forced by the market to produce what others lack, not what he wants. Otherwise he can go back to homestead and live out of market. And societies without market are the poorest societies on earth. The individuals who do not participate in the market are always the poorest in any society.

So, pursue your dreams by all means possible, but make sure you also produce something what others want, otherwise you will only have dreams, not breads. And if your dreams coincide with what others want, well, you are lucky, you have won the lottery of life.

And of course, do not, never, demand that government should control prices. You will destroy your future, and future of your children, your society, your country.

Mr PM, Liberalise The Economy Even As You Reopen It

1990. India was bankrupt. Bajaj scooter had five year wait, telephone had ten year wait, Delhi Mumbai airfare was Rs. 5000 and you needed to know a Jt Secy to get a seat. Entry level salary of Class A officer was Rs. 3500 pm. A desert cooler was a luxury. Maruti 800 was a car for upper class.

We had to pledge gold to avoid default, and as the men involved later recalled, they were shivering till the plane carrying our gold touched down in London, as had the plane crashed in sea, we had no more gold to pledge.

Enter P V Narasimha Rao. We don’t know whether he was aware of the power of free market, or his hand was forced by IMF, as commies love to say. But Indian economy was partially liberalised, and our lives got transformed.

At 30 crore in 1947, we used to starve, at 130 crore we export grain. Entry level salary of a class D staff is Rs. 20000 pm. You can just walk in and walk out with a scooter/phone. Nobody buys Maruti 800. Company discontinued the model. They go for higher models. Maruti 800 has become too pedestrian. Most urban homes have AC.

And Delhi Mumbai airfare is still Rs. 5000. Anytime you walk into the airport, you will have a flight.

Another crisis is upon us thirty years later. Can Modi use it to set the economy totally free and complete the liberalisation?

Let us see. After all, his own party worships Red if it is wrapped in saffron. And the section that most benefitted from Liberalisation, salary wise and perks wise, the government employees, is dead against it. That is the power of economic illiteracy, reinforced daily by the Leftist thugs in schools, colleges, media, popular culture, and politics.

After all, only the fools, or blinds, or evil minds, can not see the magical difference in our lives post 1990.

Corona Lockdowns And Economy

Consider the following:

Before Corona epidemic
1. 26000 persons were dying in India per day
2. 1600 persons were dying in Italy per day.
3. 7000 persons were dying in the US per day.

Now compare that with Covid deaths, in say, the US. Total 37000 dead in about 45 days. That is, an increase of 822 per day, that is around 10% of the normal, and the US is shaken. Or take Italy. 22000 deaths in 45 days. That is, an increase of about 500 deaths per day, an increase of 30% over the normal, and Italy is ravaged.

And now consider that 10 crore persons died in Spanish Flu of 1918, 2 crores of them in India.

Two things have led to shut down of the countries: We had grown confident that with better medical facilities, pandemics are a thing of the past. Second, now we have TV cameras. Churchill could happily puff at his cigar even as bodies were lying in piles in the markets of Bengal in the famine of 1940s. Nowadays, the dead body of a single child shook the entire world and led to chain of events consequences of which will be for decades with us.

The difference between natural deaths per day in a country and Corona deaths is that, natural deaths occur all over the country, most people die in their homes, and most die in old age. Society knows that births and deaths are part of life. As against this, in a pandemic like Corona, people of all age groups die, they mostly die in hospitals, and die concentrated in few cities, leading to choking of hospitals and crematoriums. Bodies even in a developed country like the US are being transported in trucks loaded like goods, and are being buried in mass graves. With TV cameras, no politician can survive if not seen acting against the pandemic.

As for businesses, they won’t survive even if lockdown is not imposed. Corona will explode, will take away key workers, will terrorise others, and people will simply stop buying.

We do not realise that money is just our imagination, and all business is our trust in the future. We buy today because we hope to earn tomorrow also. We invest today because we hope to sell tomorrow. Take away the trust, and businesses collapse in a heap, which people call depression. The imagination that is money simply evaporates.

What to do? Just cooperate with the leaders. They are facing something in which they are truly helpless, though they won’t admit it.

As for businesses, they will survive exactly as before, as if reopening after a Sunday, if they continue to pay salaries during the lockdown, even if they need to borrow. That applies to individuals also. They must continue to pay bills, salaries of maids and drives, rents, and EMIs. And that applies to governments also. They must also not stop salaries. Even if they need to borrow. Like Corona, economy is also just a chain. Even as we are trying to break the Corona chain, we have to make sure that the chain called economy, the लेन देन, buying and selling, must not stop.

Otherwise we will take years to recover from the economic depression, and we will all suffer equally: the employers and the employed.

Indian Spending On Health

Why exactly can’t we even see the obvious dancing before our eyes? How did we become so shallow and superficial, living mediocre lives?

The Dumbs of Hindostan have discovered that Europeans are spending such and such percentage of their GDP on health services, and we are not; how cruel of us.

So my dear Dumbs of Hindostan, we do not spend much on our health services simply because we have nothing to spend on health services after we have spent on our bare daily needs.

Just one example. Germany has been claimed to be spending over 12% of its GDP on health services. Indian figure is cited around 1.5%.

German GDP per capita is USD 48000. Take away 12%, and the German guy is still left with USD 42240 to spend on himself. Indian GDP is USD 2900. Take away 1.5% and the Indian is left with USD 2856. And even if you take away 12%, you will still have only USD 348 per capita to spend on health care, as against USD 5760 per capita in case of Germany. And if you tax Indians so high, they will clobber you, because they will starve before they ever reach the fancy Germany-like hospitals you dream of constructing.

We do not have Europe like schools, hospitals, roads, public transport, roads, and municipal services simply because we do not earn like Europeans. We do not earn like Europeans because we do not work like Europeans. We want unearned. And we vote for charlatans and liars who lie to us that they can give us European cities without us having to work like Europeans.

Indian States Want Corona Loot

States are demanding fantastic amounts from the Centre to tide over the revenue loss caused by the lockdown.

Suppose they lose two months’ revenue (March April). That would be one twelfth, 8.3% for each year. Can’t they bear this downtick in revenue?

Actually they can’t. All state governments are bankrupt. Each year they borrow to the limit set for them by the Central government. (Yes, India is solvent only because the states can’t borrow beyond a pre set limit. Otherwise the vote bank managers would borrow entire House of Morgan, will buy whole blocks in New York, and run away as India would collapse. Centre has no such limit. But it has IMF, World Bank, and other rating agencies which immediately raise red flag when borrowings go out of hand. We were saved from bankruptcy ten years ago only by the international rating agencies.)

Coming back to economy. Relax, sit back and relish Ramayana and Mahabharata. They are still captivating, mesmerising.

Entire agriculture is alive and kicking. No effect of lockdown. Farm implements and fertiliser suppliers are doing business as usual. Goods traffic of Indian Railways is running. Passenger services cause only the loss, so IR is actually saving money. Power industry and mines are open. So are most heavy industry plants. Software engineers are of course can and are working from home. So Are many other professionals.

As individuals, I hope we have not become Americans in India. I mean, I hope we have savings to tide over the three months if incomes go to zero, which in many cases won’t be the case. As for construction industry, labour would have left for the villages by the first week of April for harvest in any case. Nobody could have stopped them.

States see this as the opportunity to extort money from the Centre so that loot actually increases post-Corona. That is, like every natural calamity, they want to make sure that Corona is also just another loot festival.

They would not have been bankrupt, of course, if only they had allowed citizens to do business and trade and production. But then, who would bribe them? How would the junior study in America then?

Inequality Con Once More

Thugs of Oxfam
You would expect that the thugs who promised to make the poor rich by looting the rich and redistributing their wealth would go into hiding in guilt after failing to do so but murdering 120 million human beings and destroying countless countries in the attempt.


But to feel guilty a person needs to have conscience but the Leftist thugs do not have any, and therefore every few months they again take the centre stage with the calculations of the fabulous wealth of the rich that they would redistribute and eradicate poverty and inequality.
The newest gang of the Leftist thugs, Oxfam, has now come up with a fantastic claim that 1% rich Indians own four times the wealth owned by the bottom 70%, and the government is doing nothing about it.


In reality, the rich of India, or of any other country for that matter, do not have any wealth stashed away in the lockers of their bedrooms. For example, Mukesh Ambani is claimed to be worth Rs. 4,27,700 crores. But this is not the amount in his bank account or cash in his locker for the Leftists to loot. This is OUR valuation of his companies expressed in the price of shares of his company. The share value is our trust that the share will earn this much dividend in the coming years. If we lose that trust, the share value, and hence net worth of Mukesh Ambani will be reduced to zero within hours. Even his residence, Antilla, will become worthless as there won’t be any buyers as all those with capacity will be similarly ruined if Leftists take over the country, and if Leftists seize it, they won’t be able to meet even its electricity load.


Actually all the wealth of the rich over which the Leftist thugs salivate is nothing but our trust in the abilities of the rich to create future returns on our investments. That is why Leftists are left holding trash of the collapse of the economy when they have seized power in any country.
The poor are poor only because other members of the society do not have much trust in their abilities and so do not invest in any venture they try to start. Still the poorest today are the richest they have ever been. They have not become poor because the rich have become rich or are getting richer. They have in fact become richer than they were because of the reflected glory, because the rich are able to generate employment for them also, matching their skills. There are countries where there are no rich, and the poor in those countries live in the most abject conditions, not in better conditions.


In reality, there is no wealth in the world to loot. All that we recognise as wealth is actually our trust in the future, shaped by the able of the society. The only wealth a society has is the ability and skills of its citizens, and their integrity. Where men have enough integrity to let the men of ability to produce unhindered and un-endangered, that society, and only that society, becomes ever richer.


But the Leftist infantiles are not able to grasp this simple fact, and the freeloaders are too corrupt to accept it. And so cyclic destruction continues to visit us and continues to wreak havoc in the lives of the poorest of the society.
