The Trouble about Ordinances

the time of the day cannot be denied either. But, beyond such assurances, what else can one cling to? Gloom and loss of faith, a feeling that nothing matters any more; the blurring of distinction between idealism and the lack of it: these are the staples of the day. There was, perhaps, at one point of time, an excess of identification between the processes of the government and the nation's aspirations. This, the cyme would say, was the left-over gift of socialist pretension. Now that the government has been seen plain, the crumbling of faith has dragged each and 'Very thing down. The nation is infested by hypocrites: the proposition passes by a unanimous show of hands. The nation has been captured, and is being led, by a claque of crooks: motion approved again. The nation is altogether lacking in moral principles, for this is what the leaders have reduced it to: again, the proposition wins, hands down. The nation docs not any longer grip you, it cannot therefore command your allegiance. The amorality at the aggregative level is matched by a frightening array of individual amora- lities. Call it brain drain, call it the apotheosis of talent, the rush to forsake the native soil therefore continues, and you are admonished to withhold your moral judgment. The stringency in 'P' form regulations cannot stem the title. People, find devious ways to give the nation the slip. They manage to get away from it all.
