Manmohan Singh is up and about, telling the nation the demonitisiation drive could lead to a liquidity crisis. His arguments are what several others are saying: the poor are affected, day-to-lives of the middleclass are affected, small businesses and traders affected, 90% of India's workforce is in the informal sector, and India could be heading for a liquidity disaster.
What he isn't saying, or doesn't know, the majority of Indians do not own black money and, therefore, do not want others to own it.
Simple human nature. Especially, simple Indian human nature.
Similar to how someone defined 'moral indignation': That's 2% morals, 48% anger and 50% envy.
You wouldn't need to go to Oxford or Cambridge to learn this human trait. On the other hand, if you went to Oxford or Cambridge, like MM Singh did, you wouldn't learn simple human nature there.
Which explains the feelers, gutfeels, dipstick tests and comments on social media that show, a majority of Indians are in favour of this demonitisation plan.
MM Singh says, it is an 'organised loot,' a case of 'monumental mismanagement.' Does Mr Singh mean, the organised loot was poorly managed? Something not right with his logic.
He aided the crisis by turning a blind eye to it, which, from his blind eye, he now sees a crisis. He calls it organised loot. What was his government doing during those scams, if not organised loot?
The human brain has adjustable logic settings. When you have to bitch and contradict since you have to be loyal to a side or party, or when you want to upset the strategy of your rival, or when your survival depends on the side you take, or you are simply envious, then you can adjust its settings to 'half sense.'
But if you need to deny your hand in a mess around, like an extreme degree of deceit, the settings may alter automatically to levels of 'drivel,' 'gibberish' and 'baloney.' Some psychologists even risk terming this level, 'reverse foolishness.'
At this point you may end up trying to stick your mouth into you foot.
