There is no magic bullet. You can't have a healthy society without a healthy society. I do it too - take shortcuts that I wouldn't want all of society to adopt. We all do. But that's a problem that has to be solved at something other than the ballot box.

    As the saying goes, be the change you wish to see in the world.... Very hard to live up to for all of us because its much easier to blame external factors rather than internal ones.
    It has to start somewhere and starting off at the top is the most efficient way to go. As much as societal attitudes are a factor you cannot deny the importance of having good systems. And it helps BIG time if people at the top are not looting and plundering with all their might and turning a blind eye to their cohorts.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    What you gonna do about it ? Shut up and not pay it or spend more money in approaching the courts which will take a while in itself before a order is obtained to register a complaint. About which time the car will have been dismantled and sold of in parts already, and the insurance company won't pay you as it violated the terms and conditions in the contract.

    Can give umpteen more examples too. Both more and less heinous that this as i did before. But the point remains the same. Also, you are forgetting power without adequate checks and balances corrupts the best even. I don't care how honest anyone is/or pretends to be otherwise once you have been co-opted by the system then you won't let others change it either.

    Absolute rubbish - Pakistanís politicized and right-wing Supreme Court admits blasphemy petition against the countryís ambassador to the US. The ambassador, Ms. Sherry Rehman, is a critic of Pakistanís blasphemy laws which are used to silence and intimidate minorities. The fact that the Supreme Court even took up the case is pathetic.

    Wow! What nonsense. Trying to get it admitted the petition since 2010 and they finally admit it now ? How does that work? Too many coincidences in a short while.

    What did she say, btw? Any idea ?

    Also, it seems the NAB chairman has refused to arrest the PM saying there's no evidence? They are arguing that official order doesn't mention it and matter should be referred to larger bench or something.

    I am not sure what has been happening on this front but I have been posting this for a while now. This freeing of Taliban has been going on for some time now. I am not sure what is happening but since US pullout from Afghanistan has become more of a certainty this has been happening.
