Conflict is natural between and within species. But only we humans have developed such high capacity and capability to wage war and trigger massive destruction. To call this an art is disgusting, but for leaders to understand and be able to protect people and resources it seems a necessity for them Hence we can be forgiven for calling it an 'art'. Nature of finance, science, technology, information, supply chains, management, etc. have all evolved by leaps and bounds. Hence t
Sometimes the phrase 'Clash of civilisations' comes to mind when describing the conflict in Ukraine, but in reality it is a clash of Globalism versus Nationalism. Globalism is a one size fits all, thinking, and action initiated by global elites that use the power of their nations and institutions with help of the media to dominate and control the world as much as they can for their personal benefit. Communities, societies, civilisations and nations are all being sought to be
The age old phrase, 'Divide and Rule', it is actually a counter to 'Unite and Revolt'. A study of history shows that in order to people to revolt, there needs to be a sharing of information about injustice or perceived atrocities, followed by discussions and debates to flare up of tempers, physical assembly of larger groups to mobilise and march against the institutions of power that the people oppose. Finally to bring down the regime. That is why all revolutions take birth w
We now live in a society of organisations and institutions. Local, district, state, national and at international level. Each one of them managed by 'professionals' (bureaucrats) following complicated processes which no one can completely understand or implement. They are all political creatures, and therefore possess all of the negatives of politics. We humans and even nations believe that things will just happen by themselves, but they never do. The cunning amongst us know
World War II dramatically changed the then existing world order. Based on three fundamental pillars of democracy, free trade and capitalism, America the only great power that survived the war with its economy and market intact became the de facto world leader of the non communist world. American leadership established this new world order at The Bretton Woods Conference, 1944. This 'order' based on a number or global institutions ensured under the Marshall plan the rebuilding
China's deteriorating relationship with the world has crossed the point of no return. The CCP cannot change its model without self destructing. So it will collapse but it will take down the Chinese people, society and economy with it. One country's problems are another's opportunities. In 1992, the visionary leadership of Deng Xiaoping the Chinese government decided to attract foreign investment to China by offering significant incentives to foreign investors, including the
The Indo Gangetic Plain is one the most fertile land in the world, thanks to the rivers that flow down from the Himalayas and the Tibet Plateau. This is why this region evolved naturally to have the highest population densities in the world. Now imagine this all turning to desert. A political party, China's Communist Party of China (CCP) with plans to weaponise these waters by depriving much of the natural waters to the Indo Gangetic Plain has already reached an advanced st
From its very origins the Communist party of China (CCP) has always claimed its an expansionist entity. It occupied Tibet in 1950 and seized 38,000 sq. kms of India in 1962. However the CCP's rule of China has mostly been a humanitarian, civilisational, social, cultural, and economical disaster, causing more than 80 million deaths. As per the World Bank, in 1960, China was poorer than most African countries.
Only after America opened her arms, wallet, technology and markets t
We often hear the terms 'developed countries', 'developing countries' and 'underdeveloped countries'. It has nothing to do with progress or backwardness. It simply means industrially developed or under developed. Why is this significant? Futurist Alvin Toffler in his seminal book 'The Third Wave' proposes how humankind developed and evolved in waves from early nomadic people, till today. Ever wondered why some societies were rich and powerful and now not so? In the earliest
Since childhood, I have seen Communist Chinese constantly bully and dominate India. The latest Chinese incursions and aggression has received a befitting reply by brave Indian soldiers, supported by firm leadership. It has shocked many and non more than the Chinese People's Liberation Army themselves. I am reminded of an incident in the life of our family where my Uncle, Sardar Manohar Singh ji, effectively took on some bullies, and I can share that experience with you. Arri
Lest we forget the war and the price we paid. Understanding the Chinese invasion of India and the aftermath. In late 1940s two sleeping giants began to stir awake. Barring the massive tragedy of partition, modern democratic India had a peaceful birth in 1947. Nehru the Indian prime minister therefore believed, power came from eloquence, amity and diplomacy. China (PRC) on the other hand had a very violent birth in 1949, hence Mao Tse-tung held the belief that power came from
Few people realise that the successful rebuilding of countries like Germany, Japan, after World War II, and the subsequent spectacular growth of ASEAN countries and now China have all come about mainly due to American support and patronage. All these economies have achieved their growth and prosperity by exporting primarily to the American market made available to them by America, on favourable terms. In addition they have had access to the best technology, human resources e
Part 3 - CCPVirus, China's weaponising of Coronavirus Success occurs when preparation meets opportunity. Even a calamity can be exploited. So when CCP leadership discovered that they had a crisis that could harm China very severely, it appears to chose to weaponise COVID-19 Coronavirus and infect the world with it and even profit from it. To operationalise this strategy, China needed to hide the truth from the world and lull it into complacency. China adopted a three pronge
We always think of a race, nation, religion, tribe or society all populated by people who think and act uniformly. We call this stereotyping. This occurs because, we have become intellectually and emotionally lazy. We experience a couple of waves and we quickly conclude that, we know the ocean. America is the most powerful nation on earth today. However the average American like the average citizen in any other democracy has little influence on what, their business, political
Here’s the full transcript of the Trump’s letter to the WHO chief: "Dear Dr. Tedros: On April 14, 2020, I suspended United States contributions to the World Health Organization pending an investigation by my Administration of the organization’s failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This review has confirmed many of the serious concerns I raised last month and identified others that the World Health Organization should have addressed, especially the World Health Organizati
The main role of the Central Intelligence Agency with its US$ 38 billion annual budget at that time was to keep an eye on the USSR. Along with all the innumerable 'experts' in 'Think Tanks', media, US State Department, The White House, The Pentagon the CIA was caught by surprise, when on 26 Dec 1991, the empire called Soviet Union dissolved into 15 Republics. This at a time when experts claimed that the USSR as extremely powerful, was extremely powerful. None of them even ha
Part 2 - CCPVirus, China's weaponising of Coronavirus In the short term it matters little whether the COVID-19 virus is man made or natural. What matters is, 'what are we doing to cope with the pandemic?'
China's CCP is charged with perpetuating a crime against humanity. Never before in history, has any nation simultaneously been at war with every other nation in the world.
Is it an accident or mala fide intent, or is it an accident that has been weaponised?
