    And the Winners are !!

    Humans have been fighting among themselves for any conceivable reason, each side trying to justify their stand. Most of these fights were over Jar (Jewels), Joru (wife-woman) and Jameen (land). All these represent power. The more you have, the more powerful you are. There is always one victor and one vanquished.

    The victor holds the power. They make the rules. They enforce these rules. They write the history. Those, in power, have seldom been known to be on the side of what is called Right. They define what is right. In order to stay in power they justify their actions and keep on repeating such actions in the name of justice. To establish their definition of power they do not hesitate to use violence. They think they are the winners. In order to stay in power, they are in constant fear of reprisal and hence nourish hatred for the losers. This leads to further violence. Violence gives rise to hatred for those who oppose such actions and this hatred justifies more violence. The cycle goes on.

    On the other side the loser is helpless because he is powerless. This naturally develops hatred for the winner and powerful. This leads to more frustration and desire for vendetta. They look for opportune moment for taking revenge and resorting to violence. They do not succeed and that gives rise to more hatred. Even if they succeed, they are no different than those defeated. Only the roles change. Hatred and violence succeeds.

    And the ultimate winners are Hatred and Violence!!!!

    Not humans and not human beings. It is the male of the species that had engaged in pissing contests for millennia and all the yugas.

    Girls got together in an ancient greek play to stop their idiots from going to war. The only way they knew how was (and is?) to boycott sex.

    The play Lysistrata used to be a favorite drama in college groups -- good excuse for girls to cavort on stage in skimpy clothes, and tease. Those who'd like to watch the play, google the name to get to youtube videos of college plays. There was even a movie with the name. The best youtube is the summary of lysistrata -- explained with stick drawings on a white board.

    This is known as matsya nyaya in Sanskrit meaning big fish eats small fish. Bu civilized society has set up enough mechanisms at least to give the impression that justice and fairness prevails. Those who can afford the exopensive process of using these mechanisms can win. The key word here is "afford". At its core the society is still a shark tank. The winner takes it all. The loser has to fall.

    :hello:This seems to be more contextual. There are always skeletons In cupboards. Whether ruler is Rama or Ravana, India or USA, UK OR AUSTRALIA ....

    2. LESS SAID THE BETTER. Otherwise under sedition rule, one knows what would happen! Peace- war , friend - foe, hatred- love, violence- camaraderie all have to coexist in present chaotic universe.

    3. I agree if one has to be rich some one has to be poor. If one is affluent some one or a group has to be impoverished. From even days of Abraham Lincoln, it is said “ TO ENRICH POOR ONE SHOULD NOT IMPOVERISH RICH”. But that is what exactly happening since last three or four centuries. Poor save money in government banks. Rich take it and runaway in loan mela. Violence and hatred, arrest mounting cases in court.....
    4. Yet world civilisation thrives and advances just because there are few visionaries, few pessimists and hopefuls.
    Thanks and Regards.
    God - You must be unhappy the way the world is and your creations are. May I Urge You to reverse the trend!
