There has always been multiple arguments about the origin of feminism. Some believe it is owned and funded by capitalists to bring women to the workforce so as to boost the sales and hike the prices/profits. Some believe feminism was formed as a women’s wing of radical communists/socialists to bring them to workforce, tax everyone, dismantle families and take ownership of kids, and there by establish a totalitarian state.
Recently, I happen to listen to Dr. Rajiv Dixit’s speech comparing Indian and Western civilization. He claims to have done plenty of research on European culture and India culture. Most interesting to me, in his speech, was his references to Plato’s concepts of feminism dating back to 420BC! His comments were unbelievably insane; so I decided to do a fact check. Here is what I found in Plato’s one of the great works, The Republic. I’m totally astonished by the way Plato, Socrates and others approach an issue in question and how they reach a conclusion. It is a philosophical marvel that is guaranteed to take you to the higher levels of your thoughts.
This book is all about philosophical answers to “What is Justice?” and “What does one’s ‘right’ mean”? In the process of analyzing and explaining these questions, Plato visualizes an ideal State, its citizens and their roles in the society. It is a highly intellectual discussion took place at the residence of Polemarcus in port of Athens. Socrates, Thrasymachus, Plato’s elder brothers Ademantus, Glaucon and few others were also parties in this discussion. Information provided here are from the book that you see in the picture above; I’ve borrowed only a few lines out of 408 pages and I’m sure this will encourage you to buy and read the whole book.
Plato was influenced by Spartan society and some of the features of his own ideal society are borrowed from it. Spartans were a military caste, in which the individual was rigidly subordinated to the community. When a child was born it was submitted to the inspection of the heads of the tribe, and if they judged it to be unhealthy or weak, it was exposed to die on the slopes of Mount Taygetos. They had a high repute for chastity; but if the government directed them to breed children for the State, they had no scruples in obeying the command, though it should involve a violation of the sanctity of the marriage-tie. Plato calls it Timarchy, and also criticizes its exploitation of the lowest class as a wrong relation between ruler and ruled, liable to lead to serious disunity. He criticizes its intellectual limitations.
The population of Athens when Plato was born was perhaps 200-300000 including men women and slaves; and Athens was by Greek standards large. In its democracy the vote was confined to the adult male citizen population. Greeks never invented representative government, and the sovereign body at Athens was the Assembly, a mass meeting of all adult male citizens. One of Plato’s own criticisms of democracy was that its politicians constantly mislead it, governing by propaganda rather than reason.
‘The Republic‘ has three modules regarding women and family as follows:
The Status of Women
Here it is identified that the only difference between men and women is one of physical function – one begets, the other bears children. Apart from that, both can and both should follow the same range of occupations and perform the same functions; though men will, on the whole, perform them better. They should share all duties, though we should treat the females as the weaker, the males as the stronger. Can you use any animal for the same purpose as another, unless you bring it up and train it in the same way? They figured, we shall have to train the women also, then, in both kinds of skill, and train them for war as well, and treat them in the same way as the men.
For the purpose of argument they also question themselves, what professions or occupations in the structure of society men and women are differently suited by nature? They said, we need not waste time over exceptions like weaving and various cooking operations, at which women are thought to be experts, and get badly laughed at if a man does them better. So in general, one sex is much better at everything than the other. A good many women, it is true, are better than a good many men at a good many things. There is therefore no administrative occupation which is peculiar to woman as woman or man as man; natural capacities are similarly distributed in each sex, and it is natural for women to take part in all occupations as well as men, though in all, women will be the weaker partners. As they are the weaker sex, we must give them a lighter share of these duties than men.
Marriage and Family
Here is the biggest wave that is going to drown you for sure; Plato is of the opinion that if men and women are to lead the same lives, the family must be abolished. But the sex instinct has to be satisfied and controlled, and new citizens produced. Plato therefore substitutes for the family a system of eugenic breeding analogous to that used in breeding domestic animals. He says, “that our men and women Guardians should be forbidden by law to live together in separate households, and all the women should be common to all the men; similarly, children should be held in common, and no parent should know its child, or child its parent. We must, if we are to be consistent, and if we’re to have a real pedigree herd, mate the best of our men with the best of our women as often as possible, and the inferior men with the inferior women as seldom as possible, and bring up only the offspring of the best. And no one but the Rulers must know what is happening, if we are to avoid dissension in our Guardian herd”.
The plan laid out for the kids here is, “officers will take the children of the better Guardians to a nursery and put them in charge of nurses living in a separate part of the city: the children of the inferior Guardians, and any defective offspring of the others, will be quietly and secretly disposed of. They will arrange for the suckling of the children by bringing their mothers to the nursery when their breasts are still full, taking every precaution to see that no mother recognizes her child; if the mothers have not enough milk they will provide wet-nurse. They will see that the mothers do not suckle children for more than a reasonable length of time, and will hand over all the sitting up at night and hard work to nurses and attendants”
Promotion Demotion and Infanticide
What he says about promotion and demotion runs as follows: “ You will remember too that we said that the children of the good were to be brought up, and those of the bad distributed secretly among the rest of the community; and the Rulers were to keep an eye on the children as they grew up and promote any who deserved it, and degrade into the places of the promoted any in their own ranks who seemed unworthy of their position.” Here the ‘secret distribution‘ of the Timaeus is very similar to the ‘quiet and secret disposal‘ of The Republic. To sum up, Plato seems to have sanctioned infanticide(1) of defective children (the grounds here would be eugenic), (2) of children born to over-age Guardians (eugenic grounds again) (3) of children in any sense illegitimate (ie. Conceived in contravention of the laws regulating the relation of the sexes).
Most of you might be familiar with some of the words (not original concepts) mentioned here; eugenics, infanticide, abolishing family, nurseries, day care and all the rest of it. After reading this, you should be aware of its origin and if you still have no clue why you are hearing these in your day to day life, as if someone is trying to implement these ideas on a global scale, I would recommend you to watch this “UN Agenda 21 EXPLAINED, full version”.

Congress lead coalition government of Kerala, having a majority by ONE seat, is in a haste to get all the farmers “ear marked”! A project is underway to enforce all the farmers to register and provide all the information, including but not limited to,
1) Own Land
2) Leased Land
3) Crops they plant
4) Bank account
5) Existing loans
It is expected to complete the registration in Wayanad district with a lightning speed of one month; that means before farmers understand what is going on and before the cabinet fall apart! This is the same tactics played by the Congress government in the case of Aadhaar/UID project, where the UIDAI bill got rejected by the parliamentary standing committee.
For driving commercial vehicles we need to register and get drivers license; for practicing as doctor people should get registered with Indian Medical Association; Lawyers has to enroll in bar council; then what is wrong in getting farmers registered? Isn’t that what you are thinking about? Those professions directly affect the life of general public so badly if we do not enforce certain standards. What if a person who has partial blindness or some sort of physical disability becomes a commercial driver? What if someone who has no education do a surgery? Lawyers are not professionals like Chartered Accountants or Medical Representatives; they are officers of Courts appointed to help the court to run legal procedures smoothly, so that general public does not need to learn all the laws. This is why we have to enforce certain standards for them.
How about farmers? What exactly is the purpose of this earmarking? Is the government too much worried about providing subsidies to the right people? What could be the incentive that made these lousy departments run by lazy politicians and bureaucrats so duty bound to get this done so quickly? Who are the beneficiaries of this project?
Let’s imagine the “earmarks” are done; all farmers got in to the database. Then,
1) Everyone else who does farming with no “earmark” will be termed as ILLEGAL farmer. Oh yea, if you have some extra cucumbers in your backyard and you want to sell it to the local merchant, boy, you will be committing a crime! Those thousands of families who make both ends meet by selling milk will eventually be REQUIRED to get the license. Read it together with newly introduced Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, Food Safety and Standards Rules, 2011, Food Safety and Standards Regulations, 2011.
How long can we resist and block foreign retail investment? As and when this door is opened, you can expect more and more amendments to the rules and regulations in FSSA in the pretext of ensuring “higher standards” of food products offered by Wal-Mart, Carrefour and all those multi-brand, multinational monster retailers. This will indeed paralyze the domestic farmers and there by kicking them out of business.
2) Government (read, those who control government) will be able to decide the list of crops that a farmer is ALLOWED to farm. A cashew importer can lobby the politicians to add cashew to the FORBIDDEN list. Failing to obey this may result in cancellation of registration and further farming will invite legal proceedings, penalties and jail term.
3) Government (read, those who control government) will get the power to set the price of the produce, and also, farmers will loose their choice to whom to sell their yield. Failing to obey this may result in cancellation of the registration and further farming will invite legal proceedings, penalties and jail term. A classic example from current world is OPEC; price of the crude oil, how much to produce, who will produce are all decided by a handful of people sitting somewhere in a casino or on a beach resort. If Libya is producing more or is not agreeing to the “standards” or Iran is selling oil cheaper to China, they will get “handled” appropriately.
4) Banks can easily take over all the assets even in the case of a short delay in EMI payment.
5) We can expect, certain crops to be permanently in the FORBIDDEN list (in the pretext of xyz virus or whatever propaganda they may come up with) A classic example is the most recent E-coli virus hysteria, which was reportedly a propaganda against organic products fanned by World Health Organization controlled by globalists who seek monopoly and higher prices.
Think about a scenario where Wal-Mart wants to sell canned coconut paste imported from Thailand. People of India are not comfortable to use canned products and they are going after real raw coconuts. All they need to do is to wait for the next season of epidemics and spread a story of, say, “coco-li” virus followed with the entry of “Big Brother” revoking the registration of all coconut farmers in order to “protect” the people from the virus! May be this ban is for 5-6 months; but by that time Wal-Mart will capture the market and put those small farmers out of business. Not to mention that, banks will take away the land in no time and that will make the story complete.
Now you know how registration helps to bring subsidy to poor farmers! It is all about total control, nothing more or nothing less. Before we welcome foreign companies it is recommended to spare a moment and recollect that East India Company was also a “foreign company”.

Akshaya is going to undertake this UID project in Kerala. Unlike other government departments, this State IT Mission is an outsourced one; just the way Mc Donald’s, KFC or Café Coffee Day sell franchises. In other words Keralites are going to give their sensitive personal data to private entrepreneurs. I have no idea how many franchises does those babu’s relatives and friends own.
Deccan Chronicle also published his article in which he brags about the benefits of UID and also condemns the civil/privacy rights activists.
Here is my response to all of the questions posted by Mr, Korath V. Mathew in Deccan Chronicle. His comment is available here.
Is UID going to be a game changer?
Yes, UID is indeed a game changer. Numbering every citizen will change the game of government from ‘SERVANT’ to ‘MASTER’, from Democracy to Fascism, from Representatives to Authorities, from Republic to Oligarchy, from Liberty to Slavery.
The answers to following questions are a revelation of the impending transformation.
1. Is UID ubiquitous?
Yes, it will be with you from the time of birth to your grave. You are born in a prison where you are made accountable for every action; every move you make you will be under surveillance, everything you do is at the mercy of your Lord, your Master; The Government. You are treated as a criminal before you commit a crime. You are forced to give evidence for the crime that you are going to commit in the future. Your existence is at the mercy of the Government.
2. Will every Indian citizen having UID be able to prove his identity any time, anywhere in India?
Yes. You are NOT born free. You have to PROVE your existence on this planet to the Government; otherwise you are not allowed to live. Your existence will get constantly double-checked when you want to eat, when you want to work, when you want to travel, when you want to play and at every point in your daily life.
3. Is it possible for anyone to get two passports, birth certificate or any duplicate certificates in one name or somebody’s name?
No. But once your data is in the database and available to the BABUS/hackers, they can use it to get ONE passport ONE certificate ONE birth certificate or anything that you might need but you haven’t gotten it yet. The RACE starts now… is that you or the BABUS/hacker, who is going to get it first?
4. Is it possible for somebody to impersonate?
No. Don’t you know that we have state of the art cutting edge technology implemented all over India? Everywhere you go, what ever service you want to get they will validate your UID number against your thumb impression and iris scan INSTANTANIOUSLY to cross check that it is YOU, not anyone else. If there is no power that’s electricity departments problem; if there is no network that’s ISP’s problem, UIDAI has nothing to do with other departments.
5. Is it possible for anyone to operate bank accounts in another person’s name?
No. Don’t ask stupid questions. When you do online banking you have to send scanned images of 10 fingers, iris and other organs so that the system can double check its YOU, not anyone else! BTW its better you change the passwords occasionally; most banks force you to change it every now and then for some crazy reasons. For UID you don’t have that hassle!!! You got the point? What about offline banking? UIDAI is going to equip all the banks with devices that scan all your organs and ensure that its YOU. All the banks have already networked to UIDAI central database and all the 1.2billion people will get authenticated instantaneously. Hey don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about NASA, I’m talking about INDIA!
6. Will the transactions and bank accounts of one individual be interlinked?
Yes. You are under constant surveillance. If a future government is saying you cannot do multiple transactions a day then you can’t. If they impose a transaction tax then you will pay that too. You will be allowed to do what the Government decides, which may be good for you may be not. Why don’t you take a chance?
7. Will a UID enabled banking system be deterrence to black money generation?
Yes. I heard that SWISS bank is asking UID to open account. Are they kidding?
8. Is every citizen who has a UID be safe from impersonation and misuse of his identity?
Yes. If that happens then YOU cease to exist! If someone makes a passport (under the table or fake), with your data which you already gave then YOU cease to exist. The other person will become YOU. On the contrary, if that other person does some criminal activities with that passport then at the time of interrogation there is no question about impersonation, because the system knows that it is YOU.
9. Can anyone impersonate and break through a UID mandatory security system?
No, because we don’t have any such system yet. And even if it exists we don’t expect it to work. If that works we don’t expect that there will be electricity, if both works we don’t expect the network to work. It will be rare to see all the things working together and during that short interval it will be hard to break through that security system.
10. Can a UID based security system ensure a safer tomorrow?
Yes. If that works! If we have uninterrupted power system, if we have uninterrupted high bandwidth networks, if we have vigilant support and back up systems to tackle failures, if we have disaster management and recovery systems, if we have efficient employees who come to work on time and don’t go home early, who do not slack, if we have top class management; Tomorrow never dies, Lets hope for the best and get the UID immediately before someone else make one in your name!
Please post the letter to the prime minister.
