The world belongs to winners. Losers have no place in it. If you are a loser, learn to pretend at least, pretend to be a winner; otherwise you will be an outcast, part of the debris.
America became a winner in the 20th century by bossing over other countries. There was no morality or ethics in the way they achieved the victory. Not in the way they treated the natives of that land. Not with respect to the Blacks. Today the typical American is ready to kill their perceived enemies – the Asians, for example. But the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty will go on to proclaim with the magnanimity of a typical American televangelist who is also a close friend of President Trump: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Israel is a winner today. Having bombarded thousands of people and their homes. Having seized their lands. After all the massacres. The Israeli Declaration of Independence will go on to read sanctimoniously: “The state of Israel will be ... based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; it will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions...”
Our Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi, will visit Israel soon and learn from them more about winning. Not that Mr Modi really needs any lessons. His four visits to the US during two years of his reign were also redundant as far as learning is concerned. He knows more than all those leaders out there. His past is still vivid in our memories. Who can forget Gujarat 2002?
Such is the world. As long as you are a winner what you did and what you do are beyond moral and ethical considerations. Innocent people can end up as traitors or antinational or Maoists or whatever.
A great leader can change this situation. A great leader can bring about a paradigm shift. A system which is founded on morality and ethics at least to some extent. Until such a leader emerges, you can’t afford not to be a winner.
