How we develop our beliefs, Identities, character and will?
by developing a worldview...
"At once it looks like everyone is fighting with everyone else. Look closely, this fight is binary. A war between “Handful powerful elites” and “Million weak, poor and abandoned people”.
Whoever is in the top seat, has achieved a temporary state of equilibrium. This equilibrium is the sum of positive and negative powers like religion, wealth, societies, people unions, customs, cultures, and ethnicities, etc. These equilibrium funnels have various names like autocracy, theocracy, plutocracy, and democracy. Each one of these funnels gives power to the “Few powerful elites” to control, or rather rule the “Millions of weak and poor”. Out of all these funnels, democracy is one bleak hope that can fetch some power to the millions of weak people.
In a democracy, the powerful elites are called the state, and the millions of poor are called the people. It is a negotiated settlement between people and state. Democratic states have parliaments where elected representatives of every class, caste, and society trail the ideas. These representatives are voted by the people. These voted people become the pawns of the state. Very few of them grow up to become knights, rooks, bishops, or the queen of the states.
Thus, my political struggle is to ensure that everyone without any biases gets the opportunity to represent whoever they're willing to represent.
My worldview is that whoever is capable of obtaining this power must struggle for it with a purpose to reduce the power of a few elites. It will automatically empower the poor. My vision is that everyone irrespective of their history must have the freedom of making choices.
In any progressive society, the present structure of power slowly but steadily fades away to be replaced by the next structure. Sometimes, structure changes rapidly. It is called disruption! Disruption is natural. It will always be debated about being good or evil. Our ability to take sides with these disruptions will define where do we fit in the camouflage of power struggle. It can only be done by attaining more knowledge. Knowledge brings wisdom that will enable decision-making. Every single decision that we will make, will establish or destabilize our beliefs. Our beliefs set our position in our society.
Let me share a few of my beliefs.
I am tagged as a communist which I am not. I am against the right-wing. I discredit theocracy. I reject every religion on earth. I think if anyone is sleeping hungry, it is because of someone's greed. The greed must be attacked.
I do not follow any religion. My belief is “a Secular Social Democratic Republic State exists in harmony with every other state.
I do not know whether God exists or not. Since there is a moderate surety of the existence of God, a lot of people assume god exists. Their assumptions are based on infatuations. On contrary, I have assumed that there is no god. I wish someday I will be proved wrong. I will be happy to be proved wrong because I want to meet God.
I inadvertently disagree with any religion whatsoever simply because every single religion is jealous of every other religion.
I am fond of religious textbooks. These books are the work of marvel but all of them are so instructive and authoritative that they reject the progress of time.
States were formed out of empires and empires were formed out of civilizations. When civilizations were transiting to empires, religion played a great role in guarding ethnic identities. Gradually, this mixture of religion, ethnicity, empire, and geo-cultural practices formed an artificial emotional identity which is called a nation. Nationalism is a lot like religion, it trains people of one nation to discriminate against the people of other nationalities.
Hence, I believe nationalism is a temporary and artificial state of emotion that separates one person from another.
A gradual practice of social subsections based upon competitive performances like hunting, combating, farming, herding, and production. It has automatically set a practice of inheriting professions from biological predecessors. This helped social subsections in mastering their respective professions. However, gradual urbanization razed up pressure upon people for over-production. A lifestyle of more labor and less fun narrowed reduced the functional freedom of people. The population began to become dependent upon each other. Works like cleaning sewerage or tanning leathers had dislike but great profit. As the profit reduced, these were the jobs got no takers in the society. So, society devised forcible methods to decide who will do these substandard jobs. The idea of a bad fate curse or the baggage of sins committed in a previous birth was enforced upon people. A persistent lie wrapped in religious wisdom caused the genomic degradation of a few people. This is how casteism took shape. Casteism is a problem that originated from the Hindu belief system. However, profession-based discrimination is visible in every religion and section across the world.
5. Why reservation
The quest of keeping reserve had intensified the concept of accumulating wealth. Accumulation of wealth is directly related to the genomic supremacy of castes as defined above. The socio-psychosis depletion of genomic abilities of low caste people has pushed Dalits/Untouchables to inhumane circumstances. A level that cannot be compared with poverty. It is far below poverty because poverty can be the temporary economic status of a person but caste is a permanent stigma, mental fatigue, and inability thereby. Hence reservation for the people who have lived below the animal level for thousands of years generations after generation is a must.
The economy is a political arrangement of power. It is not about money. Money is a tool to exercise political power.
Politics is a continuous struggle of reshuffling the power arrangements. Various power groups like classes, castes, communities, ethnicities, skin colors, genders, and family legacies are pushing each other to remain or attain the top seat.
