I studied Economics from year nine all the way to year thirteen. One of the major topics in our syllabus was the government, and this is the topic I will rant about on this post.
The government. An elected body by the population of a country for the betterment of its economy. The government. The decision makers, the promise keepers, the revolutionists. The government. The heroes, the legends, the stars. In my eyes, the government is only one thing, and that is, phony. Let me tell explain myself.
I’ve grown up in a democratic nation. We’ve elected our government based on the promises they bade us on their rallies. A never ending list of changes that never come to action. That, my readers, are the promises of my government. My nation is considered to be one of grave poverty and a low living standard. Why is this? Is it because of its people? Or is it because of its raw materials? No. It is because of the government. The government is responsible for ensuring no child remains starved, no resident remains without an education and that there is stability in the economy. But my government fails to do so. It is too busy using its power in the worst manner. Raids, blame games, demolishes. This is not a government’s promise. By demolishing shops, by raiding offices and by blaming, they are doing nothing but wasting time and lowering the economy’s monetary position. I simply cannot understand why the government is spending their time and energy on such things. There are thousands of kids starving! Do something about that. Please?
I am so mad right now.
Let’s take India for instance, there have been two gang rapes (that we know about) in the past two days. One in Mumbai and the other in Jharkhand. This, after the much talked about gang rape in Delhi. Why has rape not been put to an end? Because rapists do not fear the consequences. Because the consequences are non existent. The Indian government is jailing the rapists, yes, but then what? Surely there are more severe punishments than simply jailing a rapist. It seems to me the Indian government is simply sitting, watching and shrugging off rape cases. Almost as though they are immune to rape cases. And what is the government going to do anyway, there are plenty of Indian politicians that are rapists themselves. And if their deeds go unpunished, what has the nation got to fear.
The government is elected because its population has faith in them. But the government continues to disappoint. Because the government cares more about power than its population. It cares more about the money in their pockets than the thousands of citizens that counted on them.
The government is a bunch of phonies. And the whole system is a labyrinth of falsehood.
