Subtle romantic propoganda & mind games or ‘Rational Thinking’ !?
•That’s negative not rational at all, or rational to a mind intoxicated in many ways.
•It may be true of smaller nations like England, Scotland, Ireland living in convenience after having fought & continuing to do so for limited spaces on an island.
•This may also be true also for Nations of immigrants like US, Australia, Canada that have persecuted aboriginals like us, of their lands and into penury by such propoganda stated violently, economically, subtly, romantically or through plain genocidal ways.
• The erstwhile USSR, Russia and China too have through history similarly usurped & controlled many territories and are also in the present actively contesting resource rich territories in the Middle East & Africa.
•All these nations use subtle propoganda to create a favourable environment, politically, socially, economically as well as operationally.
•However, diverse Nations like most of the third World, rationality could also be & has to be, positive.
• Nationalism gifts us for free, a rich symbiotic living individually & collectively as large as the diversity & as varied as the cultures it encompasses, where one can feel good & revel in things done by unknown compatriots of & for the same identity, that one could choose to celebrate or leave.
•There are pitfalls & some others more catastrophic that our society may remember; but India has never had the kind of Civil wars that most of these other Nations have fought in the past or are perpetuating in other Countries today, whom they exploit for resources in the present times, such as in Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Syria etc through Facebook, etc propoganda romantically called the ‘Egyptian-Spring’ etc.
• We need to guard against such negative subtleties that plant seeds of dissentions in the minds of those who are too young & unawares to recognise the devil in these subtleties, or those who are truly troubled with local societal indignities & intolerance (as varied as reilgious, language, regional etc) forced on them locally, in this diverse Society for various political or local reasons.
• The best counter that has ever happened to propoganda perpetuated by exploiters to create dissentions in exploitable Nations is the illegal immigration from the Middle-East & ASEAN countries (Muslim or Otherwise), to the EU, USA & Canada by people who believed the propoganda and are now being turned away!
• The perpetuators of the propoganda have got swamped by their own doing!
• Before believing such subtleties ask, “Will the originators of these messages accept me in their country if I believe their philosophies & wish to migrate?”
• On the flip side, these messages are becoming viral in our Nation basically because the “So-Called-Leaders” have used dissentions in our diverse society on such a large scale to garner votes that, asserting different identities has become politically profitable to even the poorest & the richest in a society where systems are breaking – legal, law-enforcement, administrative, medical, food, security, education et-al except the political which has shamelessly exploited dissentions abetting violence or other coercive means.
• No wonder then, that we attract propoganda from intelligence agencies across the World.
• Luckily our society has persevered only due to, individual ethics of the individual ingrained in them over eons, irrespective of ethnic or religious or regional divisions & diversities; but it is a dangerous trend for Governments to bank on, who must take measures to rectify these immediately, if for no other reason, at least their own easier survival.
• Such exploitative subtleness that normally precludes exploitation & colours the laws that govern the exploited, have remained politically expedient to the ruling dispensations of all hues, long after our enslavers left our shores.
• Surely an Independent India could do better seven decades on.
