At the outset, I would like to clarify the question of
age. When I
said that you were too young to understand, I did not mean to imply
that the older a person gets, the wiser he is.
All I meant is that
the last revolutionary movement in India took place around 1976 when
the emergency was on. I personaly lost many friends and co-workers
and many of us suffered a lot to bring huge amount of freedom for the
next generation. We Indians are an ahistorical race, and even those
who suffered through the emergency appear to have forgotten the
terror that was unleashed on the public. That said, pointwise reply:
Kenneth, i did not know this. My condolences and let me say that it
has been a priviledge to know you.
precisely which dirty corporations+ powerhungry
governments are you equating with hitler and stalin? Have you the
faintest clues as to what you are talking about
Yes i do.
Bush Administration + Halliburton = ???
so who do you equate the fsf martyrs to - Mangal
Pande? Bhagat Singh?
Nelson Mandela? Ho Che Minh? Che Guevara?
There no question of comparison. In fact that comparison would be a
cardinal sin on our part.
yes, *we* live in a knowledge age. We members of this
list, none of
whom earns less than 3 lakhs a year. But 99 crores of people in India
do not live there
yes - almost irrelevant. Fighting Monsanto is relevant
- thousands of
farmers commit suicide because of Monsanto
almost to some but no so to others. Regarding Monsanto i agree.
i do. But do
you consider the those dedicated to the FSF to not be
no, and if you think so, you have no idea of what revolution is.
Moreover lets not try and predict what the future may hold, for it
generally surprises everyone.
