2016 came with a lot of 'anti-liberal' decisions and policies! What exactly happened?

If you believe in open economies and open societies, where the free exchange of goods, capital, people and ideas is encouraged and where universal freedoms are protected from state abuse by the rule of law, then this has been a year of setbacks. Not just over Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, but also the tragedy of Syria, abandoned to its suffering, and widespread support—in Hungary, Poland and beyond—for “illiberal democracy”. As globalisation has become a slur, nationalism, and even authoritarianism, have flourished. In Turkey relief at the failure of a coup was overtaken by savage (and popular) reprisals. In the Philippines voters chose a president who not only deployed death squads but bragged about pulling the trigger. All the while Russia, which hacked Western democracy, and China, which just last week set out to taunt America by seizing one of its maritime drones, insist liberalism is merely a cover for Western expansion.

Aren't the people of China and India doing just great at the moment with limited development ? Do you think that will continue or will your pals in the finance industry be pushing it to the utmost in the pursuit of the holy grail of cheap labour. The reason for increasing disparity between rich and poor is the massive return on capital investment, particularly in the developing world and the use of that money to control politicians.

Making voting compulsory might solve a lot of problems for us

What is the guarantee that the right candidate will be voted for if voting was made compulsory? In that case, most people will vote just for the sake of it, without analysing and assessing the candidates. What should be done is proper motivation of the crowds, especially the younger generation, providing them with proper knowledge and details of the entire process. Only then will any difference be made for the improvement of the situation.

Demolition of roads and poor and corrupt bodies given tender dust is there in the taking good loft in the place. Buses and heavy vehicles are coming in number two in air pollution where 6000 are to be further added in the services. Heavy traffic due to less parking space and unauthorised construction intends any vehicle to take more time on the road. Crossing a distance of 10 km in working hours takes more than one hour four a four wheeler. Four wheelers if not allowed to stand on the road side will definitely bring the road to its actual width to make vehicles to move in easy. Odd and even numbers are no solution as people have two cars and exchange of cars is already in process with friends.

Lets say that you were travelling at a 1/4 the speed of light, so that your Lorentz factor is 3, then every spec of dust will have en effective energy about 3 times its rest energy. The rest energy of a gram of matter is equivalent to the first atomic bomb yields, so a 1 mg spec of dust will have the collision energy of about 30 tons of explosive! A microgram spec will be just 0.3 tons equivalent, which is about a cruise missiles worth of kinetic energy. I haven't bothered considering the blue shifting of any radiation, because I suspect the interstellar dust will be enough of a nuisance.

It's not physics that is holding anyone down, it's just all the technical details like the energy requirement and how to deal with a very high energy interstellar medium.

No!! They are providing the same story these “Indian” industrialists did earlier as well, If foreign companies come to india they will get their money back to their home counties and thus dont get globalisation in India, but what was the truth we all know, the disparity only grew more and more (b/w the rich and poor) and when these foreign players finally came then came jobs and money in India. This concept of Agarwal and Bansal is stupid and flawed, i would like to remind you, its business they dont care about India, they care about money, plus the investors are not indian so not like the company is Indian!

Why is it that Schools curriculum does not contain aptitude and critical thinking?

Teaching general critical thinking would be like teaching balance and then expecting athletes to apply a generic balance skill in soccer and skiing. The curricular requirement to teach critical thinking assumes that teachers are also exposing students to subject knowledge and asking them to think critically about specific topics in specific contexts. We learn to think critically when we learn the power of learning: the sheer pleasure and intellectual reward of having thought deeply about something, considered various points of view and detected flaws in reasoning or errors in fact. Critical thinking skills do not transfer themselves without more thinking, of course. Student eventually learn to value the experience of thinking thoughtfully and to repeat that experience by applying familiar skills and developing new ones throughout their lives.

Private investment have not picked up in India, what can be done to improve on this?

India continues to stand out among emerging markets, with the International Monetary Fund having recently raised its growth forecast to above 7.5% for 2016-17 and 2017-18. Private investment has not yet picked up, despite rising public infrastructure investment, structural reforms in key sectors such as power, the passage of a long-awaited insolvency and bankruptcy code, and the further easing of limits on foreign direct investment.

Doesn't it make sense to remove leaders who are physically incapable to lead?

Jaya is aged she was not available in TN meetings nor important occasions in past two years due to illness and age.Haven't visited most constituencies after election campaign in past 5 years. So after 5 years it's a big question mark if she could be able to even contest for ELECTIONS.Also the party doesn't have a proper successor.All MLAs look like pity slaves who have no idea what's going on in party. Even DMK doesn't have a proper successor after Kalaigner .Stalin on other hand is always using his father as a trump card while speaking or campaigning. He is popular only in Chennai.People of other parts of Tamil Nadu don't prefer Stalin image like how they had Kalaigner over years.they consider him only as a city Mayor or Minister due to his poor political knowledge in rural regions and agriculture.

The lack of enthusiastic teachers in government schools results in a downward spiral for academic progress of the school. Public pressure needs to be exerted in order to force the governments into opening more schools. Once the more privileged students are placed with the less privileged the pressure to improve the quality of education automatically increases for the government, a move that benefits all. Further, by bringing education under the direct control of the government, child welfare and healthcare can be improved with primary education.
