The world is growing selfish rapidly, and there’s no harm with it until people understand and respect the rights of each other. When the liberty of the individuals are respected, people feel love and this love maintains the peace in the society.<meta http-equiv=”X-Frame-Options” content=”DENY” />//

Addiction of dependence

Standard

The trade versus aid Song  by Samriddhi The Prosperity Foundation provoked me again about the parasitic nature in Nepal. People have developed the psychology that  the government should provide goods and services for their life and blame the government for not being able to provide their life as they expected. According to APA Dictionary of Psychology, psychological dependence is the “dependence on a psychoactive substance for the reinforcement it provides.” This psychological dependence has become an addiction in context to Nepal and made us parasites.

At an average, I merely find people who think they are responsible for their good and bad on their own. To stop to expect from the government to prosper ourselves is one of the main war that Nepali people have to fight with themselves. And to stop to be dependent on the foreign aid is one of the war Nepal has to fight. By nature, voluntary exchange of goods, services and love amongst, have been the basics of life. Identifying the strength and resources within and converting them to the goods and services that can be exchanged voluntarily / traded with others is the only way an individual can prosper his life. And the same is valid to the nation.

 Nepal and Nepali have to break the addiction of dependence be responsible to ourselves, if we really want to prosper our life.

We the Parasites

Standard

Humans have acquired the parasitic nature very long ago. I always come to remember my time during higher secondary education, most of the lecturers had a very speed lectures that most of the students used to miss to make the notes. I also used to miss some important points and I had a friend who used to capture everything the teacher spoke. So, I frequently had to copy some of the notes from him. I more I started to fill up the contents I missed, the more I started to miss to write the note. And by the end of the year, I had fully been depended on him to make the notes and had to copy the whole notes from him. I had become a parasite. Its not the story of single me.

According to Shlomiya Bar-Yam of New England Complex Systems Institute “A parasitic relationship is one in which one organism, the parasite, lives off of another organism, the host, harming it and possibly causing death. The parasite lives on or in the body of the host. Usually, although parasites harm their hosts, it is in the parasite’s best interest not to kill the host, because it relies on the host’s body and body functions, such as digestion or blood circulation, to live.” ( @ link ).

 

From my prospect, we Nepali are a colony of parasites, the parasite depended on the government. Some of we are parasitic by nature, most are parasitic by circumstance, but the worst ones are the parasite by choice. We expect the river to bring the gold to us, so that we could make our fortune ( The River and The Gold). We expect the government to think for us, be responsible for us, provide us education, provide us health, provide us employment, provide us food, provide us clothing, provide us shelter, provide us refreshment and everything we need to live the life we dream. We have become the parasites. This is one of the reason we are still poor. And the most worse part is we do not mind being parasite on Government. We do not see the option what we could do on our own.

But its time now, we realize that we are living poor, because we expect the government to make our fortune, which does not work any more in this competitive world. Every goods and services needs to be produced and this requires the cost, which we should be able to pay for. We must understand that if we want to be something then, we have to do something. And if we want some more, then we have to do some more. Its time now, that we own ourselves and be responsible for the good and bad for ourselves.  Yes, Nepal ! Its time for Liberty now.

In Nepal : Are we really seeking Freedom ?

Nepal has a history of series of revolutionary fights for the freedom. We have experienced various changes in rule and governance. We fought against the Rana Regime . A sort of Democracy was obtained in 1951 which was robbed again by King Mahendra and started Panchayat system (1962) in Nepal. In 1990 “People’s Movement I” brought an end to absolute monarchy and the beginning of constitutional democracy elininating Panchayat System. After undergoing a decade of civil war , in 2006, “People’s Movement II” ended up the monarchy and a run for the “Constitution Assembly” started up. We have already surpass “Constitutional Assembly I ” and the “Constitution Assembly II” is in action.

What have been Nepali people expecting from these changes in governance for so many decades is only the Freedom. But are we Nepali actually seeking Freedom? Being a Libertarian, I do not think we have been searching for freedom these many years. From my prospect we have been fighting to hand over our freedom to some middleman called as politicians in the form of government.

We have expected long these decades for the government to make good policies for the national development and prosperity. We have fought to send our representatives who will be in the government to care for us and feed for us. We have long been fighting by our lives to surrender our life to a third party who will be making the plans and policy to how to run our business and living.  Some third party guides us which way to walk, what communication to use, what education to receive, what health services to use, what we plant in our farm, what business we do, what achievement we receive. Is that what is called Freedom for Nepali ? Are we really expecting freedom or are we expecting our freedom to be robbed?

From No Government to All Government: How Do You Score on the Circle Test?

Standard

Venn Diagram speaks alot here…

International Liberty

It’s not as sophisticated as Professor Bryan Caplan’s Purity Quiz and it doesn’t have the simple elegance of the World’s Smallest Political Quiz, but at least you don’t need to answer any questions to see where you stand in this Venn Diagram that my intern shared with me.

We don’t know who created it, but it’s a clever shortcut to help people to identify their philosophical alignment based on what they think are the proper roles of government.

I’ll do a bit of nit-picking later in this column, but my immediate observation is that I belong in the “Minarchism” camp but that I’m willing to settle for “Classical Liberalism.”

Philosophical Circles

Now it’s time to quibble.

1. There’s no scope for federalism in this Venn diagram, and that may affect the answers of some people. I am completely against the notion that Washington should have any role in our education system…

Analysing Petroleum Price Hike and the strike

Standard

The Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) has jacked up fuel prices effective from Saturday afternoon. Diesel and kerosene prices have been hiked by Rs 1 per litre, while petrol has become dearer by Rs 2 per litre. As per the new rates, diesel/kerosene will cost Rs 100 per litre, while petrol will available for Rs 125 per litre. The price of aviation fuel sold to domestic airlines has been hiked by Rs 10 per litre to Rs 130 per litre, and that sold to international carriers has been increased by $50 per kilo litre to $1,300 per kilo litre.

With this revision, NOC’s monthly projected loss will come down to Rs 1 billion from Rs 1.15 billion. NOC dropped its plan to raise the price of LPG fearing possible political backlash, sources said. NOC faces Rs 733 million in monthly losses from its LPG business alone. On a LPG cylinder, NOC incurs Rs 523 loss.

Nepalese students protesting at fuel price rises set a parked bus on fire and vandalized other vehicles on Wednesday during a strike in the capital Kathmandu, leading police to make more than 60 arrests.
The city-wide strike, called by student unions to protest at an increase in the price of petrol, diesel, kerosene and aviation fuel last week, saw schools and colleges shut and most government vehicles stay off the roads. Some 2,000 police patrolled the streets, detaining protesters as they tried to enforce the strike by stopping vehicles.

A question just stroke to me. NOC’s monthly projected loss will come down to Rs 1 billion from Rs 1.15 billion. How is this covered? or How has this been covered? Of course, the loss is ultimately coming upon the head of government, as it owns NOC. How will the government cover the loss? The absolute answer is from the tax paid by country people and or loan, either of the way, it is covered by the sum of money that otherwise should have been sanctioned for the development projects. Thence, the loss is going to be covered from the payment of the fund collected from and for all Nepali people.

I do not know which group and with what motives, are the students calling for the strike. But its obvious, it tends to add the burden to all Nepali, by reducing a part of the burden of the consumers of the product. If the NOC gets loss, the loss is to be covered by the fund collected and should have been targeted all people. The consumers of the product may be in balance, but it is to rob the non-consumers. To summarise, the strike is called up to rob the non-consumers. Wouldn’t it be better that the cost of the product be beared by the consumer of the product. In my view, NOC should not make up the price to go for loss. The single penny of loss of the NOC is the direct loss of non-consumers and low-consumers of the product.
