an excellent article -- telling us the harsh truth.  americans, despite
tall talk about human rights and equal opportunities, are only concerned
about themselves. their theme is that the poor must continue to subsidise
the rich. i dont know about the rest of the world -- but we in india will
continue to remain poor if our economy is not put back on the right track &
fast. socialism has condemned the honest indian to be poor by creating an
elite of the dishonest rich. the only issues we indians must concern
ourselves about are the economic issues -- yet we waste much time in
talking about religion, caste, language and the like. 

the fourth estate is guilty of misleading the public into issues that are
really not very relevant to our well being. journalist perhaps are not
intereseted in economics and human welfare.
