Sincerity and Austerity
The Pakistan leading daily, Dawn’s resident editor Asha’Ar Rehman from Lahore in the Opinion Column titled – Man of the system – Preview on Imran Khan’s Government Profile reveals already known facts on stakeholders launching their proxies in politics.
However, the insinuation in the article’s excerpt merits attention.
“The danger here is that his team, including bad politicians from the other side looking for a quick rehab in his clean-up laboratory, might end up depending too heavily on terms such as sincerity and austerity alone, on the pattern of those who could do no more than ride a bicycle or refuse their salary whenever forced to prove their credentials as model rulers.”
My view on such opinion is – If riding a bicycle and serving without salary is worthy of indignation, then
Why is it being mimicked though only verbally to attract mass appeal?
Is it a political Gimmick? or
Lack of originality in demonstrating ethics.
The international clique agents running for office adapt my style unabashedly during political campaign to deceive electorate.
Relevantly, riding a bicycle is healthy for human and environment given the toxicity in the general space & surroundings.
Besides, riding a bike strengthens balancing act required in life to sustain rationality and humility. The values, severely lacking in politics and glamor world.
Evidently, the bike riding, free service provider is able to do a lot that is disturbing to those at the mantle of power.
Otherwise, why would there be a ban on my identity and name?
Shamelessly attributing my hard work to their proxies and attempting to taint me with their representatives’ unsavory details and in some cases criminality as mine. However, none of these actions are without karmic impact proved in the present time.
As for service without salary to prove credentials as model ruler, in the materialistic world using and abusing others to reach the helm by any means is the norm.
Despite public funded salary, perks and benefits, the practice to make a fortune during and post term in office by those in public service are bankrupting economy due to carcinogenic effects of corruption.
Obviously, the ethical paradigm to live up to the definition of honesty and integrity is never welcome among those asserting entitlement on power, status and importantly all natural endowments that are claimed as private ownership.
In contrast, working without salary, monetary benefits for ever is a tall order. It is not something the critics, the power, fame & fortune seekers would do any time let alone for the rest of their life.
Monetizing nature provided free air and water as well as others lives is the trend. In the material world where everything is based on individual gains and profits, working tirelessly without any salary or monetary rewards in the world is unique. Lifetime humanitarian free service in the current dark age is regarded insane.
Furthermore, having depleted life long earnings and assets for others progress only to be ridiculed and made a subject of constant mockery reflects human character and a glaring distinction between altruism and narcissism.
Only, the global system controllers, their appointees and surrogates were to develop the virtue of contentment and refrain from self-interests endeavors,
The struggles and challenges of those on whom they ride would be alleviated. There is no comparison fake and authentic. Imitation can never be real. Sacrifice is not in the vocabulary of those taunting anyone in that trail.
The irony of all is demanding respect, admiration and recognition from me to their members representing them in any capacity in exchange for insolence and condescendence towards me. The concept of mutual courtesy and acknowledgment is apparently persona non grata.
