aand i thought to my self how rare must this be? for him to be relaxed enough to smile like that? did he know what he was fighting for? did he really believe in us? US the ungrateful and the greedy that have let him down?
:(. i have all the love for you. Baba. i m trying to show it by staying back educating and writing.
A fractured fragmented mentality. politics and collective psychology. is what the result of todays conversation with a few nationalistic got me writing. as always these so called radicals, fake or real were looking to blame someone and calling separatism from center as the only solution. which in Pakistan’s case a big LOL. Few questions emerged in my mind.
Education is the big problem,
perspective (whats the angle of the conversation, equality or religious or ethnic bent)
dissociation from tribal/ narrow /do or die thinking thinking ( national/ethnic pride is an ok thing but at what cost?)
I think Pakistani on twitter: separatists and politicians are mentally disturbed. 🙂
Disclaimer: no human being is really “sane” . Pakistanis collectively suffer from Borderline provincial disorder BPD
The primary features of a national insanity are myopic establishments, unstable weak politicakl governments, affective socio/economic distress, marked uneducatedness in judging , representing a tortured unstable national individual self-image.
Borderline provincial disorder or a nationally unstable personality disorder, is marked by a prolonged economic disturbance of provincial functions, characterized by unusual variability in relationship with a badly governing federal govt and due to lack of education, tribal background in smaller provinces, a depth of thinking and perspective. These economic/developmental disturbances may secondarily affect cognition and interpersonal trust relations between all provinces/territories. Taken advantage of by external elements.
The political disorders in this scenario typically involve unusual degree of instability in thought and action, encouragement of black-and-white (do or die) (take or snatch) thinking, or splitting opinions on personality/morality/religious/ethnic grounds as in case of democracy.
Between idealization and devaluation episodes of national and local leaders and chaotic and unstable public private sector partnership in all walks of life,
bitter issues with national/ethinc -image, identity, and behavior; as well as a disturbance in the society’s sense of freedom, choice and independence of thought and action of all on the basis of equality.
In extreme cases, this disturbance in the sense of self can lead to periods of dissociation from center ideology of feeral government resulting in multiple separatist movements.
Splitting opinions along with a democratic behavior solely focused on and always switching between idealizing and demonizing leaders. Army, and civilian governments.
This, combined with economic/civil/internal and external disturbances, civil wars undermines relationships collectively between provinces and center. Resulting in a:
In 2005 Pakistan wasnt a failed state it is now.
A failed state is a state perceived as having failed at some of the basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government. In order to make this definition more precise, the following attributes, proposed by the Fund for Peace, are often used to characterize a failed state:
- loss of control of its territory, or of the monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force therein,
- erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions,
- an inability to provide public services, and
- an inability to interact with other states as a full member of the international community.
