Apart from external environmental factors affecting mind space, it is our polluted food and water sources, that play major role in weakening our psyche and slip ourselves in the mode societal corruption.
When people talk about neurological disorders, they consider only those disorders which exhibit visible symptoms (Autism, Phobias etc). For me, lack of integrity or moral perversion is also a neurological disorder, albeit silent one. It is getting diagnosed, only during harvesting time of past deeds of individual. And in most cases, it is never diagnosed during life time.
Corruption in society is resultant of polluted food origins. While working on correcting political system, it is equally important to see that majority of us, get nutritional food, both physical and mental.
Mental food by disinfecting Education system, physical food by disinfecting agriculture.
If you think you are sane citizen, contribute, in your capacity possible, for politics, education and agriculture.
With corrupted and weak psyche and body of majority in us, it is difficult to penetrate sane reformative ideas in our minds.
You go and explain, ideal democracy but if the other person is devoid of pure food and water, it is difficult for him being receptive and understand sane ideas necessary to change the Nation’s destiny from current shoddy state. Even if he/she understands, he/she won’t do much in action due to weak body and mind. For survival, compromises happen and saga of personal involvement in corruption continues.
Food -> Education -> Political awareness -> Critical Mass for change -> Revolution
Any upheaval, out of reaction, would remain temporary since roots are corrupt and in hibernation. With favorable environment to flourish, weakness will sprout again and reforms will topple again towards nadir.
If roots are replaces by food and education, it is difficult for any external force to break strong National fabric.
Political awareness minus Food and Education -> Revolution minus prolonged stability.
Strive for prolonged happiness.
