Progress Party of Kerala

S suneesh Public Seen by 162

Why we come up with progress party of Kerala.

Progress party of Kerala is inspired by Classical liberalism, which advocates civil liberties and political freedom with representative under the rule of law and emphasizes economic freedom . We are done with present political parties in Kerala., we don't need any of these political parties. We don't need political parties. We don't want to be a nation wide political party. We are going to focus on Kerala. Kerala only , like AAP in Delhi. AAP knows about Delhi., and they have a clear Agenda for Delhi. But in Kerala i don't think AAP have an agenda like in Delhi and they are focused in Delhi.

In our view we will conduct a Hackathon kinda event with a topic of like How we want Kerala ., What we do to make that. They don't have to worry about the entire Kerala issues. They should concentrate on one thing., like if it is Transport that only or if it is Tourism, tourism only. And we select the best of them from it. Like a recruiter finds the employee(just an example). Most of the peoples is not worried about Government., because they lost their hope. We have to change that. Nothing is impossible.

There'd be questions from AAP itself claiming that this is to ride on the wave that AAP created. It'd be a nice idea to have a solid answer ready.

Also set up a bugzilla for Kerala? :P :P

I have an issue with classical liberalism. It is Utopian and would be too easy to hijack in practice. Indeed, that is how we don't actually see much of it in practice. Also, stands taken by classical liberalism supporters that I observe seem counter intuitive and biased toward large industry and in several instances seem to gloss over existing inequalities as though they would vanish just because we wish them to in order to apply this great idea we have.

There is no responsibility for the larger picture or heritage.

A simple example. The current attempt by the power loom lobby to scrap the handloom reservation act. Classical liberalism would not approve of reservation of some items to be produced only on hand looms. State must not meddle, etc. Yet it would wreak havoc on the lives of millions of weavers. That is immediate and can be argued away with some Utopian rubbish about them finding alternative work if everyone followed liberalism.

Step back a bit. India has an abundance of manpower and shortage of electricity. None of the handloom items are life essentials that must be mass produced cheaply. Many of the handloom items involve traditional designs and weaving styles passed over generations.

Step still further back. India has a rich wealth of traditional arts and crafts which will be easy to out compete. Resulting reduced market will not allow them to survive. This elimination of existing business in favor of whatever captures market (but not necessarily other important functions of the product) is a bias liberalism can never escape by definition.

I am fine if you argue that things that don't endure should go the Darwin way, but on a national level, this needs to be a citizen's consensus to let go of vast tracts of their past and is beyond the scope of a bunch of people saying "hey the world will work better this way"

My pet question for liberalists is always, in a liberal country, who monitors epidemics? I even accept that those who cannot afford medicines should die. Can you afford to live if 80% of those around you couldn't afford vaccinations?

Every theory which claims "x or y are the right ways" is pretty much rigid and Utopian. What we need is a theory which replaces parts which have failed with ones that work. For instance, during the Ebola epidemic, medicine sans frontier( and local organizations cured most of the Ebola patients. It wasn't the WHO and it wasn't the state. So in this case, local organizations and international cross borders ones like msf(and not WHO) need to be put more into practice and the failed ones need to be phased out.

I think libertarian socialism is the way to go, as it's the only theory which allows for this type of flexibility . Butf the rich and the powerful would obviously not accept that :)

Also, since democide is the largest man made cause of death, it would be unwise to not consider its causes as well.
