The concept of “Democracy”  has been doing its round all the time; in recent times, going by the media, it has been provoked to ‘dance’, a ‘junglee’ type at that .
One is left unsure whether Jug is talking of ‘democracy’ in its profoundly original meaning or as a ‘synonym’ (‘meaning as another’).
Brevity is the soul of ‘wit’. For once, purposely  not inclined not to follow that ideal, looking back / reversely  but fast turning  the pages of history , -the toi , in its ‘SESQUI CENTENNIAL  PUBLICATION, 1992 ‘- one finds a cryptic quote, as re-quoted:
< H.L . Mencken described American democracy as a “boobocracy” of, by and for the “vast herd of human blanks” who have neither the interest nor the capacity for intelligent self-government. This style of expression is impolitic and impolite. But as you thump through those pages and see how government after  government succumbed to populism when what that country needed was leadership, you are tempted to tell yourself that even what is impolite and impolitic has to be said in a country whose national motto is “Truth Shall Prevail”.>

Poser: should that be true even for that ‘once –was- super-power’, how our nation can remain insulated from that irresistible external influence. extra strong.

       To catch a crook: Three lessons from the Rajaratnam case

The article, so also the numerous comments posted, as understood, focus on, rightly so, the most important of all being supply of an alert, unwittingly or otherwise, to anyone suspected to be a culprit. Upfront what comes to one's mind is the unpleasantly active role, unwisely played by the media- print, electronic, or any other of its kind.

In today's context, in view of the overwhelming influence any such information given publicity in advance or prematurely, more so mindlessly, and its impact on the societal welfare, in the larger interests of the nation and its people, in common, it is the duty and responsibility of the media to be considerate as to considerably  moderate the increasingly overtaking  practice of an unsavoury investigative journalism - particularly of the type verging on, -sensationalism, populism, self-promotion or-projection, so on.  Instead, desirably, at least initially, soon after any such information coming to its notice/knowledge should be passed on forthwith to the concerned empowered authority, keep closely monitoring, and, only if that fails to produce or show any outcome as expected, within a reasonable time, then only think of further suitable steps to bring about the aimed-at -result of an enduringly successful nature, accruing for the welfare of the people,   or any section /sector thereof. Otherwise, as past experience has repeatedly demonstrated, that could prove eventually self-defeating or -effacing attempt, with an unintended negative bizarre outcome.

This is an exclusive area where only expert psychologists or psychoanalysts* could come out and make a valuable contribution with really useful suggestions /recommendations, for the benefit of the humanity -not any tom , dick and harry, or an average  human/commoner , as we are,  filled with nothing but detestable trait / harmful  qualities of so called,  'ego' or 'emotion'..

The wheels of American democracy turn slowly — by design. But they’re apparently not fast enough for legal hotshots Ted Olson and David Boies (of Bush v.

Don't mind Or attach any significance to the 'STATS.' It is not a question to be any seriously taken such as, - ‘are you really serious?’ so as to elicit, much less, a righteous  answer such as,  - 'I agree Or I don't Agree ?!

On the contrary, the very simple/simplistic point of poser may have to be righteously THIS: what YOU 'think' on THIS CONTROVERSY Ongoing For AGES?

IF ONE WERE to choose and follow the not-unknown  'NEUTRAL policy' (i.e. akin to that of Dr Jeckyll And Mr. Hide')- the most pragmatic and wisest of all, the reply may vary, - if one who poses  is a 'corrupt' himself , or an 'expert economist,' - say, a NON-issue; Otherwise, say , an ISSUE. Either way, what difference the reply is going to make for THE NATION or THE PEOPLE. Anyway, for the latter who have largely chosen to remain , as ever, un- or ‘low-aroused’ !

A Quixot

Is it an Issue? or Non-Issue ?? - that is the poser that has been haunting like nightmare the mind of everyone, low or high, and all the time, since the growth in economy, particularly such a growth or growth alone, regardless of whether within healthy bounds, or with no bounds (limit) reaching the level to the brim, of a 'cancerous' type came to be glowingly favoured / strongly voted for by the men in governance, as the omnipotent class itself. To simply put it, more money in circulation - regardless of its colour/shade, means more corrupt minds , breeding more corrupt money.. So much so, common man is perennially kept on the toes, wondering loudly ,- Can anyone of the other unique class, namely 'experts' on the mind bogglingly irritant subject of 'economy' truthfully provide a different answer or clue ?! But then, can ân€˜election or no election at all make any difference, much less usher in any dramatic, if not a revolutionary, chance in the national arena / scenario ????
