Confusion was created for a few days after a heated discussion with a friend(Patro) who outrightly rejected my idea of "Economic Terrorism". I thought it would be better for me to ask some basic questions. It so happens that with all this education and upbringing we start believeing in somethings as if they were axioms of life. When such things prove to be false,they drastically change our thought process. Let us ask ourselves a few questions:
Who owns the land in and around a specific region?
Is it of the government or of the community, or do we believe that the government is actually the reflection of the community ?
If so,how can the government subidise land for creation of a SEZ with the local community not getting any short term benefit?
If this has happened,why is there disparity in our country?
Why is a Pilot paid more than a bus driver(a very old question)?
As they are not paid equally,did the person who became a driver get an equal opportunity to be trained as a pilot compared to the person who became a Pilot?
If not, how is different pay justified?
Is it not ironical that government sends a poorly paid soldier to fight all rebels(of all forms) to protect the interest and money of the rich?
How does the money belong only to the rich as the land using which the wealth has been generated equally belongs to a poor man?
Let us consider this case. I, with my parents, visit a nearby Udupi restaurant for breakfast almost on all week ends. There is an unorganised parking place place in front of the restaurant. Whenever we go there, the security guard there(who has only been given permission to be there and is not employed) takes care of our car. While leaving the parking my father gives him a five rupee coin as tip. This is the way he earns,this is his demand.On the other hand,any organised parking in the city has a minimum charge of Rs 10.
Thus, my question is.Can we apply the supply demand economics at the above mentioned security gaurd's level(we show economic system problems while distributing free food to poor as advised by SC)?
Has he got the opportunity to create his demand?
Will such people have to suffer till the time we completely organise our economy(it may take generations)?
Even in a completely organised economy,does availability of equal opportunity exist?
Do we have a system to give opportunity to our people or its just that a lucky person gets an opportunity to develop himself?
If such is the case,what is the "Importance of India/nation/system" for a man deprived of opportunity?
At last, if we do not provide him equal opportunity,what moral right do we have to ask such man to abide by the law of the land?
