To live in the form of a society all Govt., law and people must enter into a voluntary contract with mutual consent to protect their natural rights and to live together in harmony for a common benefit known as Social Contract.
Though the social contract theory leads to the formation of political authority and the concept of Govt. but here it is beyond the scope of this discussion This Social Contract also leads to the formation of Constitution.
As pointed out earlier, social contract becomes imperative for a society to live in harmony and anyone breaching this contract may be reprimanded by the Government entrusted through social contract by majority of the people by working under the same consented contract. Since, the Social Contract is the fundamental component of the society, any breach of this contract will actually hurt harmony in society and the very existence of society itself. As soon as the minority number of breaches of the social contract increase social fabric of society starts to erode.
In Pakistan, unfortunately this contract is breached by both the entrusted Government and the people. Continue reading →
PALESTINE IN THE TIME OF JESUS..” (Photo credit: Cecilia…)
Time to time the tensions between Palestine and Israel has risen and simmered down unfortunately in its long chequered history. This recent inhumane tragedy started on 14th November 2012 just week after US elections, when Israeli army killed Hamas leader, Ahmed Jabari, Continue reading →
Often an article I read a couple of years back on DAWN’s bolgosphere strikes in my mind. The article was “P for Pepsi, P for Pakistan”. Then, I hated this idea, the author and even the I left reading DAWN’s blogs. It was a surprise for me and I kept asking myself, How the hell such a daft person managed to make a space on the prestigious newspaper’s site?
Now when I look back and analyze circumstances in the very context of that blogger, I feel he was right, In fact very right. He argued, that pakistan should get a sponsor i.e. pepsi or it even be a Microsoft apple or any other top 100 renowned brands of the world. The central idea was to project the softer image of Pakistan in the world. You may agree or disagree but certainly it the author was desperate.
Recent brutal killing of a civilian youth by a ranger made me desperate too. Killing, firing, suicide bombing, rapes, rule of law, lack of governance, murders, street violence, gangs, gang wars, drones, dhranas, anguish, cries and pseudo-protests reminds me nothing but a video game. Game that almost envisage all the circumstances of Pakistan today. Grand theft auto: Vice City.
Finally, ISI briefed the Parliament. Same parliament who offered Fatiha Khwani for another pseudo-Shaheedfew days before. Shuja the ISI chief was put to the test for his name. As the chief rose to the rostrum, taunts from the political classroom (as there was no monitor or teacher in class) started pelting. Shuja stood and hold his ground, he did not only take tirade. He shot back and I imagine he punched leader of opposition right on the nose (which my gut says would have bleed) with a remark. According to a news report Continue reading →
Leadership may have different styles or types but no one can deny the fact that a leader must possess competence. This is exactly what our current pseudo-democratic leadership lacks. I am not asking for super visionary, highly competent, super fit, highly qualified or most capable leadership; but mere competence, just fit, qualified and reasonably capable leadership.
Everyone is dissatisfied and disappointed by the circumstances faced by our beloved country. There are certain contributions to this current state of cognitive dissonance. We are impatient to evolve and hence looking for a magical elixir or waiting for someone to rescue our rapidly sinking boat. To put simply we are looking for “a shortcut for ourselves” and that too should involve no pain but only gain, or gains to be precise! Continue reading →
