Stop the Inflation – Please!
If the middle class disappears then so does your morality.
Stop this inflation because it is pushing more people to the lower income group and simply squeezing out your middle classes.
Apart from the obvious of how if people do not have enough to eat, they will break the rules and morality will be thrown out the window, also with this inflation comes the lack of education and health care we all know this but if the very soldiers of your morality are gone, your middle classes then where / what is this nation standing on? The world over the middle classes have been regarded the upholders of the ethical / morality because its always considered ok by the poorer classes to let go of that concept in search of their basic needs or due to lack of knowledge.
The upper / richer classes tend to think they are above it all, just like an atheist may think religion is for the weak minded because he “knows” the truth and about doing the right thing without a greater force’s name / ritual. In many cultures the rich are “above the law” so that just leaves our middle classes to upload your moral structure. The middle class is usually also the biggest demographic in a stable society so it determines the moral strength of the nation.
Now we are seeing a shrink in the middle class belt here. Thus, there goes the (moral) neighborhood.
As in the Dawn a few days ago: “Life a diet of Hope” by Meera Jamal, the fate discussed there is the fate of many. Why should this be happening in a country that claims to be seeing an 8% economic growth? (Of course when you remove the expenditure of the nation from the equation things can look rosy).
Anyway there is the element of non tangible expenditure. Our nation sees growing kids both their sheer numbers and their actual growth is a cause for concern. Their lack of nutrition, their lack of education and more importantly health care…. What good is this population when it will just feed off your resources and not contribute back? If we live like we drive, with blinders on, there is little hope. However we CAN do… those of us with the resources, just reading here means you can read, thus you can teach another human to read etc. etc. There is no need to preach here as there are ample avenues where each of us can help.
Back to the point; we have to address this rising inflation. It’s because we all grudgingly pay the inflated prices that these continue to rise unchecked. I know it’s easier said than done to boycott I mean. This only increases the trial of our daily grind. Inflation is a worldwide problem but when we see so many citizens by the roadsides and also, we see that making ends meet for the majority of the urban population is becoming harder and harder then the subsequent problems of even more crime and intolerance are close to follow.
Please for the sake of the overall stability of this nation, suggest some options to battle inflation.
