Alright we are most, if not all, familiar with the Murphy’s Law that whatever could go wrong, will go wrong.

Sounds perfect, but I have to mention this. Have you wondered about this.

It is always worse than what it seems to be.

And I am not even a 100% sure if it fits into the group of Murphy’s Laws, so if the spot is not taken, you can call it Haroon’s Law. But I think it makes good sense. Here is how.

Needless to mention that this one line describes and explains life itself, this law governs countless, if not every aspect of life. It is especially true for marriages, love affairs and relationships, and also for business and employment.

I mean think about it. This freaking law is all around us. It is governing each and every aspect of our consumer life.

Only sometimes does our occasional conservatism outwit this law, and perhaps imagining that we have escaped it would prove a fallacious liberty after all.

However, it is not something to mourn.

It is something to accept and be cheerful about. Just like life. Just like death.

Let’s celebrate the mediocrity of life.

Sheepthink: Presenting Problems as Solutions

One of the most fundamental aspects of politics that you can observe is that it works mostly by the manipulation of human emotion.

And why not. With its practitioners being the guardians, as well as traders, of morality and justice, it becomes all about addressing the grievances of the wronged, given the incessant tendency of the human kind to be drawn to conflict and violence.

The imperfect state of affairs and the injustice and inequality caused by the abuse of power and authority all over the world in one way or another only fuel the tensions among people who feel they have been deprived and cheated.

Therefore, since there are always people who are deprived and even oppressed in some way, there will always be platforms that would offer help, genuinely or not. And often those platforms would ultimately resort to the same ills they have been claiming to liberate people from, should they have their way.

Such is the terrible cycle of politics, call it a deliberate system or a natural random occurrence.

However, in a bid to change the society for the better, greater control of the government is often proposed as a remedy to the prevalent inequality and injustice. Yes, what but the government is the solution to every wrong on earth?

Government control is absolutely necessary when it comes to providing security and protecting fundamental rights, consumer rights and the environment from abuse and malpractice. But more often than not, invitation to greater regulation results in taking a yard when an inch is offered. Arguably the same is true for certain private entities, but it remains to be the very occupation of the government.

Often the solution which is supposed to liberate people from the clutches of evil capitalistic oppressors are the very vehicles of the corruption ensuing this misery.

So is completely abolishing either private enterprise or government regulation the solution?

In the meantime, people would continue to be exploited by political emotional blackmail in one way or another. I would not mind as long as they would at least understand the value of their individual liberty, which they are gladly willing to give away in exchange of an imaginary utopian orgasm.

Establishing social justice by infringing on people’s right is nothing but sheepthink.

Maybe the only solution is just not dropping your guard.
