Democracy is to be balmed for Trump's Success

Donald Trump's rise was mostly due to his good oratory skills, flamboyance and his extremely radical views.His way of public speaking and influencing people has been remarkable despite of the fact that he possessed some qualities which were contrary to being a leader of the nation. Initial speeches of Trump showed his aggression towards Mexico, China , India and the incumbent party for being responsible for downfall of America and rise of these above stated nations. Trump took the road of Christianity and Americanism to influence conservative Americans to join his quest of "Making America Great Again".

Taking a democratic view of the situation, this resembles the supremacy of democracy which gives rise to equality for all. One year before the start of campaign, nobody would have thought that Trump could even be a nominee for presidential elections. But you have to agree to the fact that he was the people's choice as a Republican candidate to fight elections against powerful Hilary Clinton. It showed that a large section of American population wanted Trump kind of leadership to steer them through the tough waters. Democracy gives a clear picture of the consumer trend and how demand changes according to the will of the consumer.

Will legalizing trade in ivory or Rhino horn be sensible to deter criminal gangs from poaching the giants?

Elephants can survive without tusks. While most elephants have tusks, female Asian elephants don't have any, and some male Asian elephants are born without tusks. Removing an elephant's tusk completely up to its skull can be extremely painful for the animal and can lead death. The tusks are elongated incisors in the elephant's upper jaw and are connected to the animal's skull. The extraction of the tusk means taking a large chunk out of the animal's face and digging into the skull, which can cause profuse bleeding and death. Trimming the tusk doesn't kill an elephant but prevents it from digging for food and defending itself from predators until the tusk grows back on its own.

There Will Be No Peace in Syria if Assad is Isolated

Vivek had posted

Syria is no longer a straight foreward civil war as there are too many outside players with vested interests in the outcome. It is to all intent and purpose a proxy war b



Turkey is not some kind of benign neutral power in Syria. It has been supporting rebel factions, including Isis, for years. But its overriding concern, as you are aware, is keeping the Kurds in check and any deal between the west and Turkey that leads to it playing a larger role in Syria will inevitably involve selling out our Kurdish allies. Is that a price worth paying? It seems unlikely.

How's this for an alternative suggestion? The US puts sustained pressure on its Middle Eastern allies (Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey) to order their clients, the jihadists, in Aleppo to leave the city and at the same time demands that Russia and the Syrian army hold back while humanitarian relief work is being carried out there. By restraining their counterparts, both hegemonic powers will be able to demonstrate good faith. Most commentators, including whoever writes the Guardian editorials, seem to think of the standoff in terms of a zero/sum game; either Russia and Assad must be brought to heel or the US allies must be. This approach can only lead to continue deadlock with an unfortunate emphasis upon the first part of that word.

I disagree with the point saying IIT or IIM toppers do not make it big, trust me they do. Most good IITans go to US universities and do really well there. You just don't hear about them because people are not that involved in science. IGBT was invented by an IITan. Now the question remains as to why so many IITans go to US and do not do anything good here. Simple, the facilities and money for research is simply not there. Endowments for Harvard and MIT are like a 100k times that of any IIT, why would anyone who is serious about his/ her research wait here.

A manager's role in football is over-hyped.

With Mourinho, Guardiola, Klopp, Conte and Wenger the Premier League has without a doubt become the most competitive and watchable league in the world. But when you see the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Dortmund during their games, the gulf in class is almost embarrassing. The Premier League teams are nowhere close to that level. With such teams being managed by far less experienced managers such as Luis Enrique, Zidane and Tuchel, one can't help but wonder how big really is the role of a manager? Maybe it's just having a good enough personality to act as an enabler between great players in a squad.

Are we on the brink of a constitutional crisis ?

Our constitution provides for the judicial review provision where in courts can overlook the govt policies and actions and seek explanations, provide opinions and also strike down certain laws wherever it is not in the public interest or if it is ultra vires and violates the constitutions. But this provision has also lead to supreme court intervening actively in the policy formulation, some of these judgments like SC striking down section 66A of IT act for violation of fundamental right to freedom of speech, SC questioning govt on the policy implementations like that of clean ganga or SIT formation for black money

Exploitation of resources in Tibet will affect India badly in the future. Nationalist Indians should fight for Tibet to protect their own interest.

Supporting Tibet is in India's interest. The Chinese have been building dams over rivers that flow down to India; openly supporting Pakistan and opposing India in international forums.

By bringing Tibet to limelight like Balochistan, India can play a masterstroke.

Caste system was least of the troubles. It was mostly a bunch of petty kingdoms fighting each other that British cud exploit. They did try to make indents earlier when Mogul dynasty was stable n cud not make much of it. But as things began to fall apart, they were right there to make the best of it for the Empire. Just imagine what wud have a united British empire wud have done to say a small state like Wales. Something similar happened in India.

Dictatorship failed because of people who came to power not because it is flawed as a concept.

Usually when I hear about a dictator I think of someone that's power hungry and always ends up hurting the people in some way. Has there ever been a dictator that was somewhat nice or made really good decisions that benefited the people?

"Saudi Arabia and Iran accuse each other of not really being Muslim". 'Religion above all' mentality has to be challenged.

'Religion above all' not a islam-centered phenomenon but at the core nature of all the religions. Although its obnoxiously prominent in current interpretation of Islam. This school of thought have just placed some muslims against the world but, is also now placing muslims against muslims. Protagonists are trying to convey a message that one is either a protagonist of god or one is a kafir. Its high time Muslims stand up to their own biggest enemies, that is (mis)interpreters of Islam.
