Bharat and Israel, a common thread

The Israeli nation was re-established in its original geography in 1948 after suffering a long period of scattered generations, untold humiliations, and threats of annihilation (almost) all over the world. Activists and radical thinking of every colour contributed to this remarkable achievement, but the real reason was the sound Jewish cultural fundamentals of this persecuted civilization forced to seek refuge in the inhospitable corners of the world. A culture that came home to the geography of its birth carried on the Jewish religious awareness.

Bharat, or India, as it is known in some quarters, has had its cultural space defined for some millennia. The concept of Ramayana civilization introduced by Ram Manohar Lohiya encompasses present day Pakistan to Korean Peninsula and Vietnam to Sri Lanka. The geographical possibilities for our culture to thrive, diversify and develop were thus endless. Repeated invasions, rapacious bleeding of human and material resources, and attempts to destroy the dharmic basis of this region did not scatter the generations; but the subjugation, death and destruction experienced by them were inside their homeland. In 1947, the present-day geographic entity India came into being at the cost of millions of uprooted lives and rivers of blood. Defining fixed borders as a prerequisite to extract taxes and gather fighting forces was the rationale behind these nation state formations, which first formed in Europe on far smaller areas and with miniscule resources compared to Bharat. The extrapolations from this tiny sample cost the dharmic civilization untold misery and blood.

Both Bharat and Israel are deep civilizations spanning millennia, residing in parts of the geographies of their respective births after monumental strife, trauma and suffering. Looking carefully at the people that brought on such misery and destruction on both these civilizations, one notices certain similarities with vast differences. The similarities are insatiable greed stemming perhaps from harsh life experiences, a belief in conspiratorial working of the world and crooked powers and an unfounded as well as unexamined sense of righteousness. So these are the people of the Deep State, while we are those of Deep Civilizations.

The Deep state people dehumanize us to enrich themselves, they can kill all of us and justify their quest for power or territory. Once they get the riches or power or sovereignty however, they cannot sustain that happy state for themselves. They implode with self-righteousness and self-loathing. Their shallow civilizational roots cannot sustain them atop such ill gotten gains.

The real reason for the Deep State disarray is that they have failed to realize the fact of diminishing returns on societal norms enforcement, even if they acknowledge it in Economics. A corollary to that is they hanker for absolute purity without acknowledging the costs it imposes on them and those around them. One might flag that as the hallmark of an immature civilization. They too, shall die, kill, suffer but ultimately learn.

We do not have the luxury of waiting for this dawning of sense though, we need to fight them NOW. We could do it in the measured, least civilian disruptive way the IDF has adopted, but we must fight. We know the duties of individual despair because we know the value of our greater good. The dharmic way of life here in Bharat and the Jewish ethos is that greater good at stake, it is what keeps our Deep Civilizations alive through all these millenia .
