“Israel routinely carries out raids in Syria, mostly against targets linked to Iran in what it says is a bid to prevent its arch-foe from consolidating a foothold along its northern border,” reports Al Jazeera.
This topic in India seems to be totally out of sync, especially of what is happening in India today. India is breathless due to division among its people in lieu of the farmers’ protests (it is not just this one movement, but is preceded by others such movements like the CAA/NRC protests, the labour movement, etc.).
One is either a supporter of the democratic and secular process or opposed to it and call the opponents enemy of the country, pro-Pakistani, Khalistani, Naxalite, etc. Nonetheless, we, the rational and logical people, citizens of the Earth, should know what is happening on our planet — the only planet in the Universe with a conscious life.
If you are distracted, see the first paragraph again. Does it sound like we are living in a civilised world in the 21st Century? By the way, there is an organisation called the UNO, which grants permission to the US and its allies to attack Iraq on no legal or logical reasons, post aggression.
Based on monopolistic capitalism, imperialism is the worst form of human civilisation that has ever existed on the Earth. Yes, capitalism is the mother of all evils, including unemployment, inequality, poverty, mass hunger and diseases. These conditions exist despite the astronomical wealth that humanity has created and accumulated over the years, albeit in the hands of very few, not even 0.1%.
In addition, capitalism breeds terrorism, war and state-sponsored violence against its own people (the violence being perpetuated on the protests at the Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur border is enough to prove this, one need not even go further to the Indo-Pak border). The war against Syria is undeclared and the US as well as the Israeli armed forces use violence as and when they desire, as if it is meant for target shooting practice. Meanwhile, Trump has maintained that the US troops in Syria are only for oil).
So, the principal enemy of mankind as well as the environment is capitalism, which is based on exploitation of human by human, in the name of profit. But you are told again and again since your school days that without the motive of profit, humans will not survive. This is one of the biggest lies and myths of the ‘civilisation era’, which most of the people, including the exploited and the oppressed, believe.
So, before cursing the imperialist US, its allies, Zionist Israel, the despotic state Saudi Arabia, and now India for its fascist regime, think about your own relationship with the rest of the people in society. Are you the owner of an entity that has enough capital to hire others and make profit off of them and live on others’ hard work?
If yes, no need to worry about this ‘silly’ post. But if not, you are a worker, may be ‘sufficiently’ paid, but you are a worker and your employment is on the whims and fancies of your employer, your future is insecure and you need to worry.
