Who are to be blamed for inequality and injustice, the people who make the laws or the people who follow and enforce them? EcoTrain QOTW

We are living in a hierarchical society, the pyramid structure in which there are people with different capacities and different interest. The top of the Pyramid is where the whole control lies and as we get to the base we have learned to believe that what trickles down from the top needs to be followed..

The decision makers and the ones in power at the top understand that what flows from them is the ultimate and in the best interest, but now it depends on the base whether they want to believe it or not. But even if they don't there are very few times when it will matter to the enforcers.

Largely tolerance has become the general norm of the Society. In this acceptance some believe that they are in no position to challenge or fight against the law makers, or for some it does not matter at all because they are in comfortable position or some just accept the way things are moving.

The Law makers will keep going on with their tricks as to what suits their interest. They will gift wrap the law very beautifully and tactfully and present it, it's only when you get exposed to it you know that there is a bomb waiting to explode. There are very few law makers who would genuinely come with laws and regulations that are in interest of their people but largely it is the other way. I personally believe that the people who follow the law and enforce them if they are not for the good are culpable for inequality and injustice.

There is also one other side to it. There are times when the Law maker enforces some genuinely good law but the way it is executed then messes up, so it is an equal responsibility of the law maker to overlook the execution of the law.
For e.g. few year back in India the Prime Minister went overnight with a demonetization plan for Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes. The intention of the Prime Minister was good but the execution of the whole plan was messed up. There were many poor people who suffered in this law and at the same time there were many goons whose black money was recovered with this law. So it had its own Pros and Cons but then the ones who suffered genuinely it was not the right justice for them.

There are many Laws in India that are passed by the political parties but thankfully there is a judiciary system in India which takes a neutral view and gives the final decision, but the most important thing to get this done is to raise a voice against what does not seem to be right. For e.g. for the LGBT community there were many political and religious leaders who demonized this community and wanted a law to be passed making it illegal in the country but thankfully the Supreme court had a final verdict and passed the law of making it legal, but this was a long fight from the community and it did not happen overnight with comfort.

The people who follow and enforce the laws are more to be blamed then the law makers if the law is not the right one. But then deciding if it's right or not is also a big game, cause what may seem right to one not necessarily be right to the other. By and large it is the majority discomfort that matters at the end of it.

A lot of us have accepted to live in this undesirable state of inequality only with complaining and no action. We have had these discussions in our friends circle many times and I most commonly see people saying but what can we do, we are not in any position to bring in any change. Even to an extent I believe the same. Till the time it personally does not impact one it does not matter. At times even if it does we do not want to take the risk of fighting against the big whales and we give in.

Though we claim to live in democratic societies but the fact is that we are living under Dictators and following what comes from them. We are living with a syndrome of "Might is Right". There is enough in the world for everyone to live happily, there is no need for any fight, but the greed for power is the culprit. We do not need Commanders we need peace makers. Thankfully I see the younger generation being intolerant towards inequality and injustice and raising their voice to make a difference. When more and more people get into this league I am sure it will bring in change in the society and the political systems and the way the laws are made.

but WHAT can we do! yes.. lol.. its so funny how people dont realise how much power they have.. there a billions of us, and just a few of them.. when we DO SOMETHING then things change! Taking to the streets is usually the most powerful thing we can do, and when we do it in numbers and stop working for a day.. suddenly they start listening!

great post.. a really tough question this week huh!x

Thank you Alex. That's true, only when there is a mass outrage then the bell rings for these guys, but it is such a sad situation that we need to get onto the streets for every damn thing which is just our fundamental basic right.

Upvoted.

The people in power alwsys try to suppress the minnows. They are in position to rule or frame the laws as per their choice with no consideration for general public.
Thanks for this one...rest i make a post on it 👍😉

The power game is everywhere my friend, be it the Country, City, Organizations, Forums, wherever there is a group a leader suddenly pops up, some nominated and some self proclaimed.

Don't allow yourself to be manipulatd by the so-called "people in power". That should be a call to anyone looking for self-preservation and advancement.

That's true that it also depends on each one of us if we want to give in and how much.

It is always the small people are victims of injustice and inequality in this world while the big people in power can get away with crimes.

·

That's what I mentioned it is like the "Might is Right", where there is money there is power and where there is power the whole game starts.

It's against the law to break the law whether the law is immoral or not. So it's ultimately introducing risk into your life if you choose to break the law. How much risk is acceptable depends on what you have on the line, how much you have to lose, what you are gambling and how much it's worth to you.

People who have the least to lose might be willing to take a bit more risk but it can ultimately catch up with them if they take one risk too many.

·

That's true the Power gets them anyhow if they are going against them be it moral or immoral.

The people who follow and enforce the laws are more to be blamed then the law makers if the law is not the right one. But then deciding if it's right or not is also a big game, cause what may seem right to one not necessarily be right to the other. By and large it is the majority discomfort that matters at the end of it.

I do not follow the law because I think the law is moral or because I agree with the law. I see it as a part of risk management. Law is amoral as I always say. As far as enforcing laws go I cannot tell you what motivates people who enforce the law for a living but I would guess they have families they support. So I would guess they are doing what they think is best. I don't know if they believe the law is moral or immoral to be honest but regardless they are encouraged to enforce the laws even they might disagree with.

I hear in India Bitcoin is illegal? So does that mean 100% of Indians are going to buy secretly buy and sell Bitcoins if it is the only way out of a life in poverty? Of course I would expect some Indians to take the risk. Illegal doesn't mean immoral. If their risk pays off they could have enough money to do many moral actions down the road.

·

That's true in India it is illegal for whatever reasons, but then it is the only way for many to change their lives and many are doing it. If something becomes a threat to the power it is termed as illegal but then that is the decision taken for the benefit of a few.

What do you think of Decenturion?


https://decenturion.com/

I have yet to form an opinion on it and would like your perspective?

Well honestly i have limited knowledge on this but many many questions. It does not have any physical location, so you are a part of this state by being a part of your own country. I am not sure how can one completely cut off from the place they live in. I mean there will be utility use and so many of your daily chores to do.
Besides all of this while we say it's a blockchain technology based and the power is decentralized but does that really happen. Look at steemit itself, I have never been consented for any decision making. All the regulations are made at the top and we are just following like we are doing with our normal governments, so except for putting up my content freely on whatever I wish to write on there is no other liberty that I have.
So at the end of the day if it is something like this then not sure how does the whole purpose serve. Also as the state grows it is not possible to have everyone involved in every single thing so there will be at the end of it governing bodies who will have control and decision making at their discretion. It may not be as bad as the systems we live in but it may not be that favorable also. Every person will have their own views and thoughts and wants and it would be impossible to function at everyone's fancies so the power system will be there eventually.

Steem has cartel style governance rather than democracy. It's flawed but it's efficient enough for competing with Facebook which has a shareholder model. In other words DPOS is very much like the corporate structure we are familiar with.

But that isn't the limit of what blockchain tech and future tech can do. The question is what should it be used for? In my opinion better governance starts at the individual level. When we produce better people we get better governance as a side effect.

What is a better person? A more effective person. A person who can better serve is a person who can do the most with the least for as many as possible. So I'm all about automation, improving productivity, improving decision making, and from what I can see that is a big data analytics problem rather than a political problem. I don't think politics actually solves anything and just divides people but I do think tools to analyze data allow people to solve problems if they choose to focus on that.

We have had these discussions in our friends circle many times and I most commonly see people saying but what can we do, we are not in any position to bring in any change.

Tell them they can do a lot by following the reformative approach of the great Gandi which include :

  • Inter-dining
  • Inter-caste marriage
  • Allow the people of lower caste to enter place of worship and educate them.
    I am sure any common person can do that.

For e.g. few year back in India the Prime Minister went overnight with a demonetization plan for Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes. The intention of the Prime Minister was good but the execution of the whole plan was messed up.

The intention was good but according to RBI more than 99% of the banned notes were returned, so where is the black money!

The action of inclusion at every level is very important. People discriminate among themselves and sabotage even before anyone else does it for them.
Ohh the black money racass, that's what it became so painful for the common people because of poor management
