Good dictator is better than a bad democratic setup

Anant had posted

Look to Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore to see an effective modern dictator. He oversaw the transformation of Singapore from a 3rd world backwater to a 1st world economic power



Take a look at Tito Josip Broz. He was an ex Yugoslavian benevolent dictator and still today admired and loved by many.

Banning Burqa and niqab in France, treating humans at par or hurting their religious sentiments

People fail to distinguish between religion and religious rituals. The former is a practice of repenting over ones wrong doings, correcting oneself, resolving to be a better human being the next day, and being careful not to cause inconvenience to others in the name of personal freedom. There is much more than that. It defines a process of becoming on the other hand, the ritual practices are external display of one's religious affiliation, and they do not guarantee that a person practising rituals is truly religious.

With social media roaring about Indians qualifying/participating in Olympics, it is because of lack of will and cash that India wins so few Olympic medals

As far as economic incentives are concerned, I would think that there is a huge market for sports in India due to the lack of sports currently. All an Indian needs to do is get really good at a sport, come to America to compete, and get sponsored by Indian companies. This will start a trend for young people to get good at sports. Just look at the Dominican Republic with peloteros.

We are shattering all the records and are observing toppling of several symbolic mileposts in heat, sea level rise

By 2100, increase the amount of methane accumulated in the Earths atmosphere by as much as 2.6 billion metric tons. By 2300, that could spike to 10 billion metric tons. Before 2000, yedoma permafrost hadnt thawed enough to begin forming these methane lakes. Now theres no looking back. “Its like the food for microbes has been locked away in the freezer for 30,000 years,” Walter Anthony says, “and now the freezer door is open.” The degree of warming that implies is catastrophic. “The methane causes climate warming, which causes more permafrost to thaw, which causes more gas to be produced, which causes more warming, so you get a positive feedback loop.”

Every National Media ensures manipulation of the news for its own propaganda. It’s vital to look at all media, including the UK’s, with a critical eye

The fundamental problem with bias studies is to find a bias, one must first know reality. Too often, today, we take 2 talking heads with an agenda, put them together, and let them spin and call it analyzing the story. They arent analysing anything. They are trying to spin for political gain and all facts went out the window after the 10 second story snippit. So if the truth is left or right of the ideology of the nation, then the truth begins to be seen as "biased" even if it is true. In such a case, proclaiming the world is round and the govt should recognize it becomes a left wing bias; proclaiming the world is round and the private sector will prove it becomes a right wing bia. But both focus on the bias of approach instead of the error... The world is round, not flat. The question is how do you get at the truth of the story to find good bias data? I have yet to find a good, sound methodology for finding bias, which is why we still create measures that the average person doesnt understand, but allow both sides to shout "BIAS!". Maybe the answer isnt in a simple bias matrix but rather in understanding the profit strategies of todays media. After all, they arent loss leaders of the 70s anymore, they are big business of the 21st century, the information age

Beginning of the end of the secular Indian state. ‪Muslim majority areas are a becoming a problem for non-Mulsims and hence repercussions are creating a disastrous loop

Separation of state from religion is essential in a Multi-ethnic country like India but in countries where there is cultural and Ethnic homogeneity , it may not be an essential feature. If the state adopts any particular religion , it may lead to negative discrimination , evoking communal tensions and hampering democracy. Thus state adopting a particular religion is highly uncalled for peace and prosperity of a region.

India is Neglecting the Indian Workers in West Asian Countries

It would not be unjust to say that the current situation of Indian migrants in many of the West Asian countries is a byproduct of the inapt diplomacy India have had with
