2 cents on demonetization

My 2 cents because, who even wants to touch the Indian currency right now?
Technically speaking, PM Modi declaring the 500 and 1000 rupee notes defunct and invalid overnight doesn’t make them so neither does it reduce or nullify their value; the December 30 deadline till which they are accepted in banks will in actuality make them invalid.
But the naive don’t understand that any doubt, distrust in the mind of the money holder about his own money is very very bad.
A result of this is panic, misery and rumors, and these things I can tell because they are easily visible and out in the open. I wonder what those with a background in business and/or economics can see in this deliberate mess.
Then there is the case of the 10 rupee coin. Even though they are valid, legal, few are willing to touch them, all because of rumors. And the strange thing is, when you ask people who aren’t accepting them, they always say, “I know it is legal, but I still won’t accept it.”
If an irrational fear and distrust has taken hold in the mind, what is valuable will become valueless to that mind.
The only thing Modi’s late night declaration did was create misery and panic for rich, poor, middle class, innocent and the so called guilty alike.

Purposefully vague

Most of the time, ┬áboth – those protesting against and those protesting for, with their pitch forks and their outrage, are the ones who want to raise them against others themselves, want to be outraged themselves. What is being protested for or against doesn’t matter, it’s the pitch forks and the outrage that do. For how dare you say anything against my cause – so just, so great, so mighty; the cause which I would protest against if you were championing it.

For inside, all they want is to be angry.

If they do it, IT IS GOOD ; if others do it, IT IS BAD; what it actually is – IS IRRELEVANT.

The monster.

A bunch of educated idiots who want different things, tie their futures, and their intestines together into a system that makes getting those very things impossible.Then this monster, for it is a monster, crawls to the town square to publicly screech in terror over the different choices each head of the body makes, because *gasp* each head is an individual who has their own preferences. Unable to move in any direction because each wants different things and their intestines are tied up together, this horror show screeches in agony from the threat the other heads from its own body pose. Never learning its lessons; Never questioning its premises; Never progressing forward – the intestines stretch, then some more, it then finally dies in a ditch.
