(A detailed version of this chapter in notes #301.005 on http://facebook.com/mehtarahulc )
|Intellectuals’ proposals||My proposals|
Some (not all) of my competitors focus on Human Solution, and some have complete distrust in System Solutions. Their emphasis is on charity, improving human values etc.
|I reject Human Solutions for the following 2 reasons : A)if humans in West are non-corrupt, why are some departments/areas in West also full of irregularities/corruption? B)if humans in India are corrupt, why are many departments/areas (like ticket printing in railways, check clearing) void of corruption?|
|Emphasis on discretion/judo-regulatory solutions
Those who do believe in System Solution believe in solutions which involve giving discretionary powers to officers/judges/regulators.
|Emphasis on nexusless solutions
My proposals involve mainly nexusless solutions, with citizens or Jury as a supervisor.
Most of the intellectuals no longer consider poverty as KEY problem. The emphasis is on education, growth or some OTHER factor and a diamond hope that education, growth etc will automatically reduce poverty
|To me, “Reducing poverty” is a KEY problem and I believe that by reducing poverty, education, growth will automatically occur. IMO, the ONLY way to reduce poverty is by enforcing the Equality over Natural Resources.|
|Proposals related to reducing corruption
Most of the intellectuals believe in Judo-regulatory means in which high powered authorities like Vigilance Commissions and Lokpals, judicial Commissions are appointed to check the corruption from the top. .
|On ways and means to reduce corruption, I have faith in Jury, RLPP and Competitive Exams, and no one else.|
|Corruption/atrocity problem in Police:
Quick-fix measures. Nothing worth attention..
|My proposals has 3 parts : Property tax to raise salaries ; conducting ALL the routine transfers by random matching ONLY ; Jurors to have powers transfer/expel policemen.|
To improve law-making my competitors profess on law barring criminals in the Legislatures. And no other specific solution to improve quality of laws.
|IMO, the best, and perhaps only way to improve law-making is to allow citizens to vote DIRECTLY into the City Councils, Panchayats, Assemblies and Parliament, by paying a fee of Rs 2 to Rs 5 to cover the cost.|
My competitors have NO intentions to work on judge-lawyer nexus problems.
|My proposal is to expel ALL the judges and replace them by Honorable Jurors.|
|Allocation of the natural resources
Except agricultural land, my competitors show little interest in ensuring that the incomes from natural resources should be distributed amongst citizens. Very few of competitors consider “natural resource” as important issue.
|In my proposals, the citizens have WELL WRITTEN nexusless procedures by which they can DIRECTLY choose/replace the first user of their OWN share over the natural resources. Also, in my proposals, the citizens have nexusless procedures to expel the officers in-charge of policing the resources|
|Reducing wasteful government expenditures
My competitors believe in high powered commission/regulator oriented solutions.
|In my proposals, the Jurors have powers to cancel an expenditure request submitted by an officer and thus reduce wasteful expenses.|
Downsizing with no explicit unambiguous guidelines.
|Linking salaries/rents DIRECTLY with tax collection. So that there is zero deficit.|
Many of my competitors very bullish on education. While they go on and on and on emphasizing on the importance of education, few suggest any concrete administrative procedures to improve education. Also, few experts emphasize on education of law, weapons
|My proposals include a detailed administrative procedures which allow citizens to replace District Education Officer, school principal. In addition, my proposal include a detailed test/reward system for teachers/students that ensure high level of motivation and low wastage of funds.|
My competitors believe in leaving everything is left to the regulators and private companies. No powers to citizens.
|As per my proposals, the citizens get procedures to replace Cable Companies and replace Phone Companies.|
|Regulating electricity supply
Here also my competitors believe in leaving everything is left to the regulators and private companies. No powers to citizens.
|As per my proposals, the citizens get procedures to replace the electricity distribution company, replace the Chairman of the City-owned Distribution Company and replace the Chairman of City-owned Generation Company.|
|Regulating currency system
My competitors want to leave entire Legal Tender System to the RBI’s Governors, Directors and experts, assuming that these individuals are honest and care for the well being of common citizens. As per my competitors, the Directors, Governors and experts should have powers to change the money supply at their will.
|As per my proposals, the citizens get procedures to replace the RBI Governors and Directors. They can increase the money supply ONLY after citizens’ permission by RLPP or referendum.|
