Some celebrities out there make money by just spreading their ignorance and misconceptions about how a nation works. Sometimes they forget that they themselves encouraged the “wrongs” they are worried about now.
First of all it is none of my business how many kids my neighbor should procreate? Because, a democracy can work only when a citizen realizes that:
“one’s right end when it encroaches on the right of another and draws one’s own limits at that point.”
Am I advocating people to burden the financial systems by producing more children? Definitely not.
BUT FIRST LET US BE HONEST TO OURSELVES.
1. We should NOT have encouraged people of one community procreating too many children and then portrayed them as national heroes BEFORE.
2. We should NOT have encouraged the blanket permission for lawyers to file malpractice suits against physicians who refused services to people where it was detrimental or unethical to render them.
With the threat of too many frivolous malpractice litigation hanging over their heads, doctors are just reduced to the level of sign posts saying:
“- you have option A
– you have option B
– you have option C by which you may or may not die.
I’ll do whatever you want.”
It will take many years to refocus the “fear-the lawyer-before-caring-the-health-of-the-patient” therapeutic training of health care personnel to fair practice of medicine in this country.
3. We should NOT have encouraged the financial and legal advisers in giving this wrong idea to the people:
” Create more children and enjoy
-more tax benefits
-more divorce benefits
-more alimony and child support
-more welfare benefits “
because even the richest country in the world too has its limits when benefits are considered even if it is Wall Street.
4. We should NOT have encouraged the funny notion that only certain communities can be rich enough in this country to help their members in difficulty.
It is pure arrogance to ask how can a father buy a half-million house for her daughter. That shows the questioner is prejudiced against certain communities doing it. It shows the questioner has already made erroneous assumptions about the father as if he is a beggar.
Even IRS worries about such things next year only. And they are not worried if the guy pays taxes on the money received.
We cannot attack other communities and be blameless enough to call it discriminatory or prejudicial when they respond in the same way.
Unless we get rid of the biases and prejudices that has destroyed this country, we cannot make much headway. If we made mistakes in the past let us be honest in admitting it.
Let us not selfishly misappropriate money for ourselves as we are starting a vicious cycle which others can also follow. By following such activities we are losing the moral right to stop such wrongs in future.
And let us not delegate that job to the President and avoid changing ourselves. If any laws need to be changed, let us let our lawmakers know about it, rather than take laws into our own hands as if we are all paragons of all virtues.
