Twisted Logic. (Ignore post)

Thomas Robert Malthus had said that often natural calamity strikes a blow upon mankind to level population with the food of the world. Thus if there is one apple pie that can at most be shared amongst five fellows, and there are 10 beings, the remaining five may be struck by some natural calamity to bring down the number of people to five. If we broaden the spectrum, homicides of fellow human citizen fall into the same category of calamity, human induced. So with every premature death, the population balance is being sought to level.

If there is food for twenty. And there are forty people; Darwinian Theory of survival of the fittest comes to the rescue. The fittest gets the food. The fittest implies the one with an advantageous position or the one who is cunning. And thus we get the haves and the have nots, when population is not equal to the amount of resources in the world. Justice apparently denied as the lord calls for equality for his people, the have nots become vengeful. And thus we have cases of homicide. Often the victims are not victims of any personal vendetta. They are the victims of the privileges that some people get and some people are denied. To put it in a nutshell, they fall under the category of victims of inequality in the society. Like the terrorists’ or extremists’ victims. Erasing inequality from the world is a tough job. Because if you create economic and political equality, (which is very difficult because we folks are greedy and egoistic and hence want to get as much as we can, that may be more than what we need) you still remain with the inequality of the minds and personal preferences. And the only solution to that perhaps is to create clones of only one mind. But that would imply killing off humanity itself, which isn’t beneficial for the development of resources. Thus through homicides, mass or otherwise, one can not level people with resources available, which is perhaps the ultimate aim of the sub conscious. And thus, even without taking into consideration high ideals, killing people is meaningless and unproductive in the long run.


Enough said. It's amazing what a person can do to kill her boredom. And I am still bored. If not even more. :|

Hehehe it was fun reading your post. I don’t know why you mentioned it as Ignore Post but really the way you handled such serious issues is great and truly sarcastic.
Definitely a simple and straight logic for the twisted society.
Practically speaking, can there be a better solution for a better society apart from achieving social, economic and political equalities in this present situation... at least in India?
P.S. Killing people is meaningless and unproductive not only in the long run but also in present time.

@ Olive Oyl

No No, I started reading your post right after i got up from sleep! :P

I found it sarcastic and your usual hilarious way :D You got the funny streak in you right? ;)

@Aditya: You've got a new profile! :D

@Asif: I think better people, better behaviour can change the society. but that is so very idealistic unfortunately. everything that is perfectly good is idealistic i believe, and that is so very irritating and distressing. and yeah if that does not work, for a back up a really strong military and security forces :|

Asif said...

very well said. We are dreaming of good people and good society and when it is not happening we tend to get irritated and depressed sometimes.
But definitely I don’t agree about the strong military and security forces. Can you ever guarantee that there are no corrupt and unfit personnel there?? In fact there are many instances in which they were actually the guilty parties.
It seems now we should be content with our dreams of the so called happy society.

And to think a few extra shots of gin would have sorted your problems out...

Hi Olive,
I would differ from your idea of 'fittest' and hence the subsequent reasoning. It's not necessarily who is in an advantageous position or who's cunning. It's about who can make the most of the situation he is in, with whatever resources he has. I can, at this very moment, think of numerous examples where ppl had resources and yet chose not to utilise them and yet they crib about being the so-called have-nots. Who decides who are the haves and who are the have-nots?
Also, in my opinion, an utopia need not necessarily be one in which ppl are equal. In fact, equality would stifle creativity and competition, and in the long run society would lose out.
Standard disclaimers apply :)

@enigma:
that was a sound comment :)but i think one who utilises the resources is in an adantageous position over the other who doesn't. so that person gets into the category of 'advantageous' folks. secondly, in my opinion also, equality in what everyone gets or has necessarily isn't going to render utopia because it is going to stifle creativity. but since the people out there always keen on killing people does so to achieve equality (a careful thinking on the reasons made me realise that the ultimate aim is the so called equality) and therefore their basic aim itself is usless because trying to attain something like that is not only highly improbable but also detrimental to society. and by the way, equality that one wishes to achieve in this world, is about equal opportunities. then it's upto the person itself if they wish to waste that or not.

keep dropping by :)

Enigma said...

Not too satisfied with ur clarifications, but let's keep this for some other time :P. Yup... will definitely drop by.

olive oyl said...
