The doomed Left-Right debate in India…

A rabid Left-wing anchor will pack the TV panel debate with 9 rabid Left-wing panellists. The sole Right-wing panellist will be introduced as “Right-wing” thereby falsely implying that it is a debate of 1 Right-winger and 9 neutral individuals. While by rights Right-wing debate should get 50% of the time, the sole Right-winger will get far less than even the 10% he could be getting, being interrupted a 100 times. If he protests loudly and gets good support from social media, then the entire Right wing will be dismissed as rabid, loud, alarmist, violent and unreasonable. All the while the question will be asked, “Why isn’t there a single rational and intellectual voice among the Right wing?” India is a secular sovereign democratic Republic, but the so called liberal/secular/intellectual voice of India is in fact Communist, communal and virulently intolerant.
