Yesterday I was going through this capitalist propoganda blog
called Indan Economy.I found this extremely
distasteful comment that basically sums up the mindset of
India's ruling elite.
A user know as 'Kya Tu bhi" posted the below comment
in support of one of their articles.
" Capitalism does not involve much implementing, it mostly involves GETTING OUT OF THE WAY & letting the people/markets take charge.
Also, there is no obligation to take everybody along. If a businessman makes a profit running a factory to import autoparts, it is not his obligation to convince the kapaas ki kheti karne wala farmer to stop swallowing pesticide because he can’t efficiently farm kapaas. If you can’t farm kapaas, get your butt into the factory & slog away on autoparts. There is no obligation on part of GoI or anybody else to turn your kapaas ki kheti profitable."
India's Ruling Classes are not bothered about the
suffering of our Peasents.Instead of sympathy,empathy,
some meaningful financial or emotional support
all that our farmers are showered with is contempt !
Contempt for ordinary folk
"They did it for the handouts." That's another jibe that reeks of contempt for ordinary folk. It tells us more about the people asserting this than about those taking their lives. The notion is that people destroy their families forever in order to get a 'compensation' of Rs.1 lakh. This reduces the victim to some kind of crazed beast. Yawn. It's all been said before. In 1998, using precisely this claim, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu scrapped compensation for suicide-hit families. Fact: the suicides shot up and were at their highest in the years 1998-2004 when there was no compensation at all.
The notion that people destroy their families forever in order to get a 'compensation' of Rs.1 lakh reduces the victim to some kind of crazed beast.
Then there are the ideologically insane. The members of the sect have no interest in either farmers or agriculture. Only in upholding their Gospel.
For them, farmers are dying because they have not been reached by free market reforms. If more of them keep dying after they are reached, it's because the "reforms have not gone far enough." It hangs a halo of righteousness around wanton ignorance.
