Correcting False Narratives
The politics controlled media, entertainment and communication outlets tasked to play false narrative endlessly glorifying failed leadership and government beaten on the track in election and public square by ordinary citizens’ will to defend individual rights and economic freedom prevailing against state’s corporate agenda.
The Big Techs run social media viz. Google’s You Tube, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and Jack Dorsey’s Twitter to name among the prominent saboteurs of free speech and cancel culture pioneers promoting undemocratic unethical norms such as favoring anti-republic i.e. against mainstream and minority population rights with arbitrary censorship on the flow of information in public domain.
The social media company Facebook has been in spotlight for monetizing Facebook users and social media patrons’ private data. Additionally, Facebook’s Whatsapp, Instagram and any other communication channels of the social media company are continually exposed for unapologetic violations of public rights with respect to individual privacy.
As if these tech giants aren’t enough to wreak havoc on social media violating individuals rights, yet another technology company NSO group in Israel joins the conglomerate selling the controversial spyware Pegasus to governments in different parts of the world.
The governments especially the ones desperately relying on wayward strategy due to dismal performance and flawed policies resulting in economic and social mayhem find the technology potent in spying, snooping and prying unabashedly to suit own desire. The leadership heading abysmal governance use the spyware technology to silence critics at home and in foreign land. The Pegasus spyware is used as a weapon abusing the political status for perversions.
Indian leadership and government in New Delhi leads in the misuse of the contentious spyware.
In contrast, any government in possession of the spyware would direct espionage activity in monitoring and policing national borders and territories infiltrated and occupied by the real enemy in quest for territorial expansions.
Instead, the government in question undertaking surveillance on own citizens in the country and private citizens in foreign land suggest them the existential threat to democracy and civil liberty in society.
The interesting contrarian propaganda is the government and the leadership in particular is apparently invincible according to the pro-leadership’s propagandists hired as Senior political correspondents, TV and media Chief editor and fringe elements deployed on social media to spread the absurd fabrications in denial of reality.
The ground reality is the government, the major political party and specifically the leadership campaigning during the pandemic contributing the ravaging second wave in a nation turned into massive graveyard is rejected hands down in the polls by the electorate sending a clear message on the leadership and government failure in every respect.
Similar fate is experienced by the leadership and the political party in majority of the regions in a country. The electoral defeat is a significant factor in the so-called popularity contest for the leadership and the political party experiencing a major blow in state elections nationwide.
The other indicator proving the false narrative on the leadership and government’s alleged stronghold in Indian politics is the farmers’ relentless rally over eighteen months weathering the scorching heat, torrential rain and bitter winter albeit sacrificing own members lives around 700 or more in farming community.
These individuals bravely laid their lives for the legitimate cause demanding the incumbent leadership and government in New Delhi to withdraw draconian laws protecting corporate interests against agriculture economy.
Likewise, the concerned Indian citizens led peaceful dissent on New Delhi leaderships and government devious assault on citizenship status targeting not just the minorities and marginalized but the majority in the country forced into proving nativity and ancestry. It was a definitive victory to Indian democracy against unconstitutional anti-democratic government measures adopted by New Delhi leaderships as the ruling government.
These are just few examples of several debacles experienced by the so-called popular leadership and government in New Delhi in the past two years and up until now.
In light of the incontrovertible truth on New Delhi leadership and government rejected by the electorate in successive polls, average citizens’ commitment to defend their fundamental rights on citizenship and farmers rallying for agrarian woes categorically define the weak and most unpopular status of the New Delhi leadership and national government.
The narratives broadcast on airwaves, television networks and cyberspace via social media on New Delhi BJP leadership and government being unbeatable is shallow and importantly a false impression.
The political factions duplicity as opposition at the center and regional basis generate a perception matching the exaggerated accounts on the Indian Prime Minister and government as indomitable. However, the presumptuous claim is dismissed by voters through ballots in state elections thus far.
The opposition groups and factions at the center and regional states prioritizing personal political benefits in quid pro quo with ruling power in New Delhi might settle for such sloganeering propping unpopular leadership as otherwise.
The citizens as electorate and others battling for their economic progress in India defiantly substantiate the government orchestrated and funded narratives on India’s Prime Minister and incumbency far fetched and fallacious.
In a democracy, the citizens voice matter over propagated myth and mendacity.
