Just a few seconds ago I was reading my friend Peter’s blog (berlioz1935.wordpress.com), about social injustice, funny how our mind is talking about two sides of same coin- revolution.
Unfortunately human beings are too vulnerable to power’s madness, there is a proverb in Bengal that translates to whoever goes to lanka becomes Ravana, Ravana was once a very pious man who during his final days became absolutely arrogant and lost all his marbles and most ethics, which resulted in his destruction. He just could not digest the power he became.
If we look at the revolutions- all of them including French Revolution that Peter was discussing we will see that these revolutions certainly happened because of due reasons, then what? the “rebels” became the new tormentors, they first destroyed the privileged class and then started exploiting the poor/middle class like the “privileged” classes did before them!
Two of the worst examples are Nazis and communists I think, the way they poisoned the very societies they breathed in is scary!
Controlling the media, police and education and then through them controlling the rest of the society- sounds so science fictionish! but that is what they have done, everywhere they have captured power!
They have completely destroyed culture by poisoning it from within, they were shrewd enough to know that force will result in rebellions and martyrs so they worked the other way round, they ruined the youth, kids, poisoned them from start and totally ruined the very culture, country they originated from and the tragic part was their media and education system helped them through in that job and publicizing it!
I think a famous singer of Bengal Nachiketa gave them the right name “Termites” 😉
