The theory of Marxism propagated that economic disparity is the reason behind social injustice with respect to wealth and privileges. To explain this, the concept of ‘Haves v/s Haves Not’ was created, wherein the Haves are the privileged, wealthy elites, while Haves Not are the unprivileged, discriminated population.
While doing so, Marxist theory has simply divided this whole world between two narrow identities. You may be a victim of this injustice, if not; you are definitely a culprit for the same.
What was initially started to portray economic disparities was soon adopted by certain Marxists, who foisted this theory onto the cultural aspect as well. In this way, the gap between the ‘Haves’ and the ‘Haves Not’ was artificially widened even further.
Outfitted with this new reasoning, movements to fight racial discrimination began in the West. Racism is indeed something worth eliminating. No sane mind will support it in any manner.
However, putting the blame of historical racism onto current-day descendants of alleged racists is equally wrong. In simple words, to end one kind of discrimination, you started reverse discrimination.
“With globalization, not just of economies, but of cultures and education too, these theories started invading Bharat. The vast diversity of Bharat, something which we should definitely be proud of, suddenly became a tool for exploitation of the Bharatiya society.”
Luckily, the issue of racism is not as harsh as the West here, but the woke theorists were smart enough to replace the ‘race’ with ‘caste’, ‘gender’, ‘religion’ and ‘languages’. Terms changed, plan of action remains the same!
Bharat definitely has had problems of discrimination between communities, there have been tensions between religious communities and sects, and there have been issues regarding the imposition of languages, but none of these issues was as plain and simple as one side being the complete victim, while the other side being the complete culprit. Every issue had its shades of grey.
Due to this cultural Marxism, Hindu males started facing the same backlash as the ‘White’ Christian males of Western society. They were all plainly portrayed as an enemy of women, of oppressed communities, and of minorities.
And now, enemies of ‘non-binary’ genders as well. Liberalism, in its true sense, is against Stereotyping and Ethnic Targeting. But cultural Marxism is following exactly that!
Woke movements have managed to infiltrate the educational sector and, ultimately, amongst the intellectual spheres. Unfortunately, woke minds have reached top positions even in the Judiciary and now hold supreme capabilities to make or break this nation with their actions. This is dangerous for the internal security of Bharat.
Cultural Marxism operates by pitching one community against the other. More conflicts, more protests, more divisions in the country and potential threats to stable governance.
Our institutions are forced to dedicate time and resources towards artificially created issues, which leads to ignorance towards the main issues which Bharat should be talking about- Economy, Defence, Research and Development, and Employment.
Issues can be effectively resolved by bridging gaps, not creating more gaps and tensions. Rather than this blame game between communities, rational solutions need to be found, and yes, without creating new discrimination to end previous discrimination.
Bharat’s first Chief of Defence Staff, Late General Bipin Rawat, instilled confidence amongst us by saying that the country is ready for a two-and-a-half front war. Sadly, it’s not a two-and-a-half-front war anymore.
It now has dozens of different fronts, each equally strong, equally worse, and the battlefield is not the only place to be fought over. These dozen front wars will be simultaneously fought in the Parliament, Universities, and Courtrooms, and Social Media will supply its ammunition.
These dozen front wars can only be won over by a nation that deploys a multidimensional approach. We need to relearn the Bhagavad Geeta.
