Red to Green!
9 Nov 1989, fall of the Berlin Wall symbolized the death of communism… The Flag Red!!
15 April 2010, Copanhagen Summit, A united effort to save our green mother Earth… Green Revolution
Communism was the neck pain for the countries thriving for free trade also it paralyzed the cognitive minds who otherwise could have invented something great fearing for livelihood. It took two decades to flourish the capitalism with worldwide acceptance. Entire pro-US nations have declared that capitalism is the realistic method of justified social system and not that of communistic which reaps the idle human resource and corrupt governance. Karl Marks ideated communism or discouraged imperialism and capitalism with full might. To analyze the capitalism, he derived a theory of ‘The Haves’ and ‘The Have Not’s’. This theory was so much real in his time that it is indeed a fact that in his time Europe was partitioned into two classes. First those who had big business and money to avail all amenities and luxury at their disposal and second those who were been living on the daily wages, in the mercy of their kind masters (The Haves). Karl Marks felt annoyed and betrayed… he roared the voice for the common interest, for The Have Not’s. He strongly believed that a man should at least be considered as a man and thus should be worthy to claim his meekest right of food and shelter. This is possible only when the money making mechanism can be controlled by the government rather than those who just meant profit (no matter if it comes from the sweat or the blood of their employee). He inked his thought in his book ‘Das Capitol’. He suggested that everybody should contribute for the bread and shelter for everyone and the government should take the moral responsibility of ensuring this to make it happen flawlessly. It led to the foundation of Co-operatives, Public Sector Units and the fully controlled economy. It was great Idea but needed the idealistic conditions for success. Sadly there is nothing ideal in this universe, not even the natural resources. Even if the 80% of the system works honestly and with commitment, rest 20% can lethally hamper the desired result. Perhaps this 80-20 ratio can be claimed as the most idealistic condition in terms of human loyalty behavior that means even by attaining the so called most idealistic conditions be the scene of impossibility. Naturally, communism was just a great idea required super idealistic scenario. Capitalism is very much relevant to Darwin’s theory of the survival of the fittest i.e. the survival of the fittest is the fittest theory to define capitalism. Perform or parish, do or die, are some of the other closest notions to define capitalism. Capitalism had never bothered about leg pulling, it just encouraged competition to fight and move on… except a nominal regulation of the government… it wasn’t controlled by any public office ever. This system provided flawless opportunities for all who had ever dared to commercialize their ideas. But as it is rightly told that rules are made to break, this system had kept on bolting all the loops and holes it had dwelled since its very inception. In humanity, limiting the lay man freedom leads to a bloody revolt while setting them free encourages malevolent menaces. Capitalism faced too much Banking frauds, share market frauds and opportunism and exploited the benefits of doubt. Also this system left no scope for those who are not capable i.e. physically, mentally challenged population and down trodden illiterate population for whom monovalent competition had never granted a slightest possibility to at least survive. That means under the law of humanity, capitalism is a bane, because it encourages rivalry and sparks conflicts. Understating this, Indian took a third way to go i.e. mixed economy.
For the country like India, where opportunity, poverty, illiteracy and possibilities where so much enter mingled that its homogenous structure was not compatible with either of the economy system. Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India has greatly introduced a most suitable economy system called Mixed Economy. But this too had left wide possibilities of exploiting loops holes.
All in all these methods economic governance and trade relations had perfectly managed to lead this world to the newer possibilities of technological innovations and high performing markets but what left unnoticed is the proper care of the very crucial, unavoidable and sole base of our survival that is ‘biosphere ecological system’
Past two decades were the era of capitalism and fall of communism, WTO, FTA, G20, SAARC and BRIC etc… have derived splendid theory of trade and commerce. Exponential successes in the technology have squeezed the world into just a tiny village.
It is a common saying that in draught like crisis a farmer stays back in home and devotes his time to think and plan about the next Mansoon… end of the first decade of 21st century was very much resembling to the story of this farmer where all the entrepreneurs have stopped running for dog fight, lied back in home and scribbled the ideas for post-recession strategy. During this time they have realized that we are almost very late for to retain the biosphere disorder! They realized that, How long this blind run of capitalism will stay hot topic of grape wine? Will there ever be a possibility of united efforts for the cause for green piece? Will there be a genuine concern would be showed about how this world will manage to feed 7 billion humans + Cattle’s + Animals by keeping this biosphere balanced?
Ideas to the new generations are not to build another music system or I-pod; it should be about how less we can disrupter the ecological balance of our mother earth?
