You don’t have money for education.
You don’t have money for health.
You don’t have money for welfare schemes.
You don’t have money for infrastructure.
You don’t have money to rehabilitate families sacrificed for your development.
You don’t have money for flood victims.
You don’t have money for farmers.
You don’t have money for veterans.
You can’t even say you spent it all on defense since you have ammunition for just 10 days.
What are you doing with our tax money?
The duty of a welfare state is to provide a healthy matrix to it’s citizens where they can attain their full potential.
But if citizens are forced to look up to the private sector for education, medication, food and shelter we can assert that the state has failed it’s citizens and has no right to demand any kind of loyalty from it’s subjects.
So before gratifying your nationalist ego by deeming Pakistan a failed state just look at your own state India and tell me that it’s not a failed one.
I remember how people were getting of their cunts when food security act was introduced deeming it a politically motivated move.
I remember how people were calling free education as waste of ‘their’ tax money.
I know how upset the medical students get over the idea of mandatory rural posting.
I remembered how pained people were when an Italian ‘born’ was about to become the PM of this nation.
I have seen how unjust the idea or social justice appears to privileged people.
I have seen how apathetic were the privileged people when poor were dying in bank queues.
I have noticed how every pro people idea is deemed anti development.
I have witnessed how our deityfication has stripped the soldiers of their human character.
Does this nation even deserves to have human rights when it’s absence is celebrated by the lumpenproletariat??
Rahul Dev is said to be contesting in Bigg Boss only to fund his son’s education.
One can only imagine how difficult it’s for a commoner to fund their child’s education in this neoliberal era.
Because we have been conditioned to believe that a costly education is the norm and free education is luxury.
I guess free education is a basic human right because luxury would be to go for an overpriced substandard education.
This idea of free education seems a revolutionary concept because we have been made to forget that the education that our fathers and grandfathers received was almost free of cost.
But of course demanding free education makes you a burden on taxpayers’ and asking why education is so costly is sedition.
