Do We need Moral Policing ? YES is the answer.

Discussion across the table is the main norm in a democracy and Violence or any SILLY campaign would not do any good for preserving Morality.

Preservation, Propagation and Policing

Human beings are the ONLY creatures with three dimensions of existence : Physical, Psychological and Spiritual, which in turn are guided by THREE main human faculties: Science, Arts and Religion. The culture of any Society, at any given time, is always a SUM of all those dimensions with varying magnitudes and evolving with time. But, absence of ANY one of them would bring DEATH of that culture. So, the concept of Morality is special to human beings to REGULATE the process of cultural evolution and protect it from ultimate death. Morality only promotes the basic human values to attain the ultimate human goals of Health, Happiness and Harmony. It is such an important thing that it must need Preservation, Propagation and Policing.

Now, we have to decide, who will do the policing role in a Traditional Society and Democratic Polity like ours. Discussion across the table is the main norm in a democracy and Violence or any SILLY campaign would not do any good for preserving Morality. Our govt. should be responsible to implement the recommendations coming out of the Discussion and the Society should cooperate.

In this post-modern and post-liberal world, people are coming back to the age-old social concepts of regulationism, protectionism, traditionalism etc to keep Peace and Order in society as well as economy. Results of experimentations with ultra-liberalism and ultra-communism have been a big failure. Hence, even Obama has started regulating corporate CEO’s salaries and The Pope is speaking against homosexuality.

The main tragedy with today’s youth is that they mistake OPEN-BODYNESS for OPEN-MINDEDNESS. They mistake crazyness for COOLness. They mistake rebellion for change. They mistake money for success. They mistake any disorderliness for fashion. And so on. Hence, not only policing, we need MORAL PARENTING and MORAL TEACHING in schools, too. These are continuous processes, which we had unfortunately avoided in last 2-3 decades. Sooner we go back, better for the society.
