Its Project Brahmanism!

Dear all:

I have been following all the different sets of emails and other
communications since Anna Hazare began his hungar strike. Let me put
my point very blunt. You may agree or disagree it solely rests with
your wisdom.

The new model of Project Brahmanism is to fight against corruption and
population growth not against casteism, fascism, communalism, gender
inequity, capitalism or anything else. Well corruption had been always
a yardstick to freeze the core issues of any region. The issues I have
mentioned above that I have mentioned about. The word corruption is a
misnomer, for it implies that there is something called honest...
capitalism. Corruption is worked into the fabric of capitalism. Sir
Francis Drake made a fortune as a "privateer," the polite word for
pirate. In addition to indulging in the very lucrative slave trade, he
routinely captured and ripped off French ships. One nation's piracy
was another nation's foreign policy.

In the 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.

To 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 again.

But 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 "
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?

I want to bring to ur notice a small thing.. Please follow this link.. It's related to PESA 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 neoliberal
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.

At this 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

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
these developments.

*Creation of a casteless and peaceful society is indeed the first step
towards just, egalitarian, and harmonious society. A society of equals,
neither unequal nor more-equals, beyond the strings of caste, class, gender,
race, ethnicity, etc. Otherwise it leads to social oppression, political
exploitation, economic deprivation, cultural domination, gender
discrimination, class isolation, deliberate exclusion. Lets’ believe in a
society beyond this. *
