film "The Untouchables", Al Capone tells a group of reporters, "You can
get further with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind
word." This is not only the creed of criminal gangs but also of states.
What one state considers a criminal act--for example, the invasion of
Iraq--another, the U.S., considers kindness with a gun.
Corruption reaches its most frenzied peak at the height of economic
booms, when everyone's trying to get rich. Speculation drives up stocks,
and profits. Books are doctored to hide problems so that the good times
can continue to roll. When the bubble bursts, the most egregious
scandals are exposed.
retain an image of fairness, the courts prosecute a handful of cases.
This does not eliminate corruption, but temporarily drives it
underground. Faith is restored in the system, and the whole cycle begins
capitalists will engage in anything that is highly lucrative if they can
get away with it. Moreover, if they are willing to line the pockets of
politicians, they often can get away with it. When we look into the
history almost all fascist movements started by "cleansing all
corruptions" all over the world. Slowly it moved against minorities of
all walks in the course. Why the movement of Irom Sharmila for minimum
democracy in those states has not been attracted the "media" or the
"agitated youth" and "Gandhians" of this country?

area. Adivasi houses have been bulldozed against Gram Sabha resolution
in Surguja of Chhattisgarh.. but it never becomes an issue; nor its part
of any sort of corruption.. If corruption is the real issues then why
don't people talk about the "CORRUPT" mindset of every Indian who
believes in Brahamanism? Is it not a state of mental corruption? And
remember the entire upper middle class crowd who walked behind Anna are
the same ones who were in the anti-Mandal agitations in early 90s, the
anti SC-ST reservation movements on the streets of Delhi in mid-2000s.
So someone tell us who are these ones? Are they not the supporters of
Casteism, Fascism, Communalism, Capitalism? Are they not driven by the
social system and market forces? This might give you an impression that
I am supporting corruption per se which is not correct. But what one
needs to understand is that corruption is not the real issue. It is just
one of those indicators. The real issue is much deeper.
In India project Capitalism wouldn't survive with all its neo-liberal
programs unless they take support of the already existing social and
political domination and exploitation. As such Capitalism is relatively
modern than Brahmanism and therefore the survival of Capitalism could
only become a reality when the upper hand remains Brahmanism. Remember
Brahmanism is a social ideology of complete domination and for
Capitalism to align with there is no better ideology than Brahmanism.
stage let me make a point. Brahmanism as an ideology could be amidst
anyone - not only among Brahmans but also among others. I know many
Brahmans who are not Brahmanical. Having said this it is also essential
to make another point that Brahmans in the past had contributed
extensively to the growth of Brahmanism as an ideology. The contribution
of textualisation of history to regularisation of the texts is a
definite attribution which is neither hidden nor could be erased. Even
today a sizeable number of them do have similar expressions, language,
body language, gestures, postures, attitudes, etc. Naturally it builds a
sense of complete domination to unpredictable magnitude. These forces
had successfully operated the mass attack on Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs,
working class and women; further succeeded in disintegrating all these;
created more and more confusion.
Today Brahmanism as a rigid structure might have become more fluid but
now it as emerged as a billion dollar program. New formats, new
incarnations, new methods have been devised. One cannot be ignorant to
