The decrepit media imm howls "moral policing" the moment sane voices raise the ethically right issues in public domain. Will share a "system's approach"-centric multiple-win strategy.(It's work-under-progress). Meantime not to forget that mills of(moral)justice grind slowly,but surely. S P Mathur former DGP.

Dear Mr. Rodrigues

Are you talking about that party which openly accepts they are
two-faced forked tongued double dealing 'jumla' scam artists who never
wanted India to be independent from foreign rule?


about the mafia party which originally licenced the casinos but is now
feigning that they don't know who let the dogs in and who all actually
connived in passing The Goa Public Gambling Act 1976 amendments in the
1990s ? (NB: I recall it was Congress's CMs - RS Naik and PS Rane who
passed those 2 brazen amendments in 1992 onwards).

Is it also high time there is a national moral movement for
governments which ban / prohibt / criminalise all major forms of vice
eg. drugs, gambling, liquor, brothels, tobacco, gutka etc and forgo
the revenues from these which allow these bloated governments to carry
on after making their populations into addicts ?

Some morally inclined people, who met me a few days back, go a step
further to ask that declared registered addicts to these vices should
be given very limited / rationed supplies by the State with the
proviso that they will not be allowed to vote until 2 years after they
get de-addicted.
