Recently I have been reading and hearing a lot of impassioned debates about various burning issues in India. Much of it has been difficult for mere mortals like me to understand, as it is clothed in “left-liberal” jargon. After several weeks of patient research, the true meaning of these terms began to reveal themselves. Therefore, I have decided to write a decoding manual to make it easier for others who may be trying to make sense of it all. This is my understanding of the liberal terminology in a nutshell:

  1. Justice: Unless a ruling is as per ‘our liberal’ worldview, the judiciary is obviously biased & unjust. It is then our duty to use all available resources: Airtime, newsprint, the International Court of Justice, living rooms, and classrooms to fight against the grave travesty of justice.
  2. Evidence: When friends are involved, evidence or lack of it, is a matter of convenience and opinion. Ditto for non-friends, especially if they belong to a certain Western state.
  3. Debate: We believe that facts are mere inconveniences. However when the opposition confronts us with facts, we must gang up, jeer, sneer, and shout-down them down. After all freedom of speech is sacrosanct.
  4. Equality: All men  (and women) are born equal. Some like us are just born intellectually more equal than others. Therefore the other side should just learn to shut-up and listen.
  5. Freedom: We firmly believe that all citizens of India have the fundamental right of freedom, to assemble, speak and generally make choices. We merely insist that their views must align with ours.
  6. Money: The capitalistic obsession with money & money talk is a dirty, plebian activity. However appreciation of the finer things in life such as junkets to foreign universities, and freebies from the government do not count.
  7. Religion: As our Great Prophet Karl Marx said, ‘Religion is the opiate of the masses’. We believe in atheism, and by God we shall impose it!
  8. The Indian state: Is brutal and myopic, and is driven by a dysfunctional ideological state apparatus. We need to take lessons from Cuba, North Korea and Pakistan.
  9. Poverty: Is the great millstone dragging India down. But it is also our bread and butter. After all as our guru says, everyone loves a good drought.
  10. The North-East: Is a part of the country, inhabited by ‘chinkies’, for whom our heart bleeds continuously. However, we must hijack any serious debates relating to the region (For reasons refer to point #9).
  11.  Liberalism: We believe in progress and openness. However, we oppose a liberal economy since that may create jobs and jeopardize things. (Refer to point #9).
  12.  Human Rights: Our conscience cries and we feel the pain for all of humanity, with some exceptions: Victims of kidnapping, victims of terror, district officials, our underpaid policemen, our under-equipped soldiers, and generally anyone who does not subscribe to our ideology, since those chaps obviously deserve what they get!

  1. 1.The lie-berals or fiberals what ever u call them are actually leftists ,communists . They should never be called anything near /rhyming with liberal which is self conferred by them.

    2. Never in history of the World they have been liberal infact just the opposite- fascists , Nazi sympathizers and their fellow criminals. Oppressors of Human Rights where ever they have ruled . Iron curtain and iron hand. War mongers .
    Communism is against the very idea of Democracy ideologically and have no part to play in electoral politics .They are more interested in propagating Maoism ,Naxalism and weakening the Country as Islam does by Jihadi terrorism to capture and convert it.

    2. These commies with help of congress since independence have stranglehold on all institutions that matter for education ,media ,its policy making & remotely related to propagating their ideology.Its a mutual backscratching helped by initial Russian influence after 1947 .

    3.The commies are basically atheists who believe in no God and One Book praisers like Islam and Christianity so are ideologically opposed to Hinduism from where comes the distortion of our written and taught history ,education policy etc. It suits the congress vote bank politics to propagate these lies which is masterfully executed by the leftists.

    4. These leftists, from their university education to job to all comforts are dependent on crumbs thrown by govt. hence on payrolls of congress since independence which ruled most of the time, fulfilling their own ideology and helping congress, enjoying a symbiotic relationship since decades.

    5. The fight is a bigger one, that of ideology. The crumbling of soviet bloc has intensified it and few places where they have stronghold will also give way sooner or later.
    With SM picking up pace ,the MSM will fast loose its importance and propaganda power along with revenues etc .
    Also with USA ,EU focusing more on India ,they will soon realize this commie presence here and support the side that can drive them out.

    6. They are called ‘left’ because they are never ‘right’.

    Regards
