The question is not about which ideology you support, the question is how it is being practiced. India neither succeed in implementing socialism nor implementing capitalism. In our socialist days, the thousands of crores of money spent for agricultures have actually never reached the farms.
Everbody Loves A Good Drought by P Sainath
Before Marx wrote Das Kapital, there was no socialism. Marx found a new form of economy by analysing the drawbacks of capitalism. Whether the socialism passed or failed, the questions raised by Marx are still there, unchallenged and unresolved. In the post-globalization catastrophe of economics, wars and climate risk, people across the world are again questioning the gains of capitalism. So where does the world rediscover itself; left or right? Or at the middle?
Who is talking of getting all steamed-up over corruption? Who writes the newspaper columns and who reads them? Who watches the primetime TV shows and concerns about the future of the economy? Who talks about climate change and runs NGOs to help the poor? This is the middle class. This is the class who advocates for socialism on behalf of the poor and this is the class who advocates capitalism on behalf of the rich. This is the middle class who are often criticized for being selfish, non-participator and inapt in development discourses. Neither world owns them, but none can ignore them.
Socialism has never made the middle class poor, nor capitalism ever made them rich. This class so far has waged war either in the interest of the bottom, or in the interest of the top, but never for the middle. If Arvind Kejriwal identifies himself with middle class and still standing at the middle, then he is clean and free from any hypocrisy. I am with Kejriwal, because starting from middle is always a fresh start
