Anglo-Saxon world collapsing: Why Indian media is stuck in “Uncle Tom Syndrome”?
To anybody but the voluntarily blind colonial slaves, the Anglo-Saxon world of dollar hegemony is collapsing faster than the speed at which Great Britain finds its map removed from the Euro currency note, and nowhere is this more apparent than with the large number of Uncle Tom inspired narratives emerging from the perception builders of and in India. So what is an "Uncle Tom Syndrome" in the first case?
So what is an Uncle Tom Syndrome and how does it apply to India? Uncle Tom syndrome was the term used to describe a ritualized, accommodating, sycophantic style of behaviour in African Americans toward Caucasians. African Americans have now shown what they can do and have done in the United States of Anarchy. This Uncle Tom syndrome, however, has now shifted to the way desi types tend to behave when faced with trailer trash.
Nowhere is this visible more today than the difference in the way the Chinese media is covering the Washington DC events. The Chinese are taking sensible steps and warning their citizens about the chaos that Umrika is about to descend into. They realise more than anyone else that the largest nuclear arms stockpile is in civil war conditions.
What are we doing in India and our mainstream media? It is almost as though we are making excuses for the lumpen mobs that are running amuck in the US? "Violent protests" is what our narrative builders can offer at most. Slave mentality with eyes voluntarily shut, head in sand, ostrich behaviour pushing a false line for crumbs that drop their way. Let us never forget that whilst being glued to television screens watching rabid klansmen climb walls to enter their own Senate building in a country that they stole from the native inhabitants just a couple of hundred years ago..Our Anglo-Saxon slave gene media is almost apologetic in its reportage of the civil war taking place in North America.
Meanwhile, in our own neighbourhood, the Gulf and Arab countries appear to have closed up their ranks and are going from strength to strength, and regardless of what anybody may think - Al Hind has always been the declared target for them. Even our attempts to enable food and energy security are perceived as threats by people who have traditionally swept in to loot and pillage.
The Anglo-Saxon world is reaching its nadir, and like a sinking submarine, going faster as it sinks deeper into an abyss it will never recover from. We in India need to ensure that we are not pulled down with it. The only way is to get rid of this colonial slave mentality that our narrative builders are still afflicted with. What happens in London or Washington DC or Ottawa does not really matter much to us in India anymore.
And we can always organise an Airlift 2.0 (at cost plus basis) for the NRI types stuck over there when required.
Veeresh Malik was a seafarer. And a lot more besides. A decade in facial biometrics, which took him into the world of finance, gaming, preventive defence and money laundering before the subliminal mind management technology blew his brains out. His romance with the media endures since 1994, duly responded by Outlook, among others.
A survivor of two brain-strokes, triggered by a ship explosion in the 70s, Veeresh moved beyond fear decades ago.
