A correction:Countries like USA, Japan, UK, Canada, Germany, China, Singapore, South Korea, France, Australia etc. become economic powerhouses only because they encourage dynasty rule.
Am I correct?
You want dynastic rule in India, Mr Jaykay767?
Bring back the British Raj.
Camilla Parker Bowles' husband will make a wonderful Emperor who woiuld re-unite Pakistan and Bangladesh with truncated post-Partition India. And perhaps chase out the atheist Chinese from Buddhist Tibet and make that the Dalai Lama's domain once again.
Or, hunt for the remnants of the Mughal regime.
They will destroy the Madurai Meenaakshi-Amman Temple and build another massive black-stone obscenity like the Aurangazeeb Mosque of Kaashi infame.
Or, better still, let Sardar Vallabh-bhai Patel turn in his grave.
Bring back the hundred and one petty kingdoms, princedoms, principalities, that coloured pretty pre-Partition and pre-British India, and flourished during Vedic times as set out in excruciating detail in our Mahaa-sankalppam whch we recite during Aavani Avittam (Veda Upaakarmam to non-Tamils).
All glory to Bhaaratha varsham, Bharatha Kandam.
Do not complain if we end up with a Shah-of-Iran-type, followed by a sucession of Ayatollahs. Or an Idi Amin.
S Narayanaswamy Iyer
In India, even Public corporations are managed as dynasties.
In the rest of the world, there are very few Public corporations that are owned and managed like that.
So comparisons are not accurate. India has a different culture. We still hanker for a savior not a leader.
Once elected the leader is treated like God with their own Bhakts.
Unless we have an electorate who are skeptical and hold their elected leader to a higher standard, we will never get the best administrator and leader we deserve.
A qualified candidate who may be from a dynasty will have the advantage in political life and will do good for the county.
An unqualified moran whether from a dynasty or from the street will be a disaster for the county.
Yes, I agree dynasty is not necessarily wrong in a democracy when electorates are educated.
But when the electorates are still in Hero worshiping mode you tend to get the worst leaders.
