On India: Notations As India Votes....

As India has begun to vote, one of the leading moral lights of our time has spoken on the true state of India today.    As Arundhati Roy spoke, I could not help but think about and remember about the continued World-Wide discrepancy that continues to exist.    She begins with Mukesh Ambani's 27-Story Skyscraper in Mumbai:

She was ever so right as she noted how the Indian Army has been deployed against the people ever since Independence as it now begins to gear up to go into the heart of India.   She has been one of the courageous few who has spoken for the less fortunate in India today.    It is also quite striking on the true nature of who is tipped to be the Prime Minister of India, Mr. Modi who presided over the horrific attacks on the Muslims.  Even today, there has not been an accounting of those horrific times.   As she spoke of the true nature of Modi, it sent shivers through my spine.

 What is also striking is the comparison with the United States was also quite striking especially as the US Supreme Court just came out with its' latest decision  essentially equating money as speech.   It is quite a telling thought:    

Democracy no longer means what it was meant to. It has been taken back into the workshop. Each of its institutions has been hollowed out, and it has been returned to us as a vehicle for the free market, of the corporations. For the corporations, by the corporations.
