What Do You Understand by Liberalism?

Liberalism is about giving people as much control over their lives as possible. Where government is concerned, this means moving power to the lowest appropriate level. However there are other things too. Power can accumulate in places other than government, and government is needed to keep that in check. This means, for example, that the powers of big business owners also need to be limited.There is also a social element. Groups of people wield power over their members, and there is always an extent to which you can only be yourself to the degree that others around you will allow it. To some degree this is necessary, but much of the time people go significantly beyond that. It's a problem liberals haven't managed to solve yet, but I think that there are solutions.Liberalism also means giving people the tools they need to be able to make decisions that have the outcomes they desire. Transparency and accountability are important here, but so is education. Without the knowledge and skills to see how to get things done, people won't be able to achieve the outcomes they desire and may end up achieving the exact opposite.Then, there's the removal of obstacles such as sickness. By which I mean both physical and mental health. Problems with either can make it really hard to get things done, and there are limits to the extent that you can control them on your own.I could keep going for ages, but this is a good start

How did you learn leadership skills?

In the beginning I learned my primary job in healthcare so Id be an expert.As time went on, I became interested in administration and began volunteering for positions no one else wanted. I call this growing where your planted, there are plenty of opportunities to lead right in your backyard. Before long I completed first time high level programs learning and practicing leadership without even knowing it.Later a headquarters human resources fellowship was announced and due to the positions I held and my breath of experience the application was competitive and selected. Later I was hired as chief of the human resources department.

In this position, I had contact with executives on a daily basis and they mentored me. From there I went back into an operational position and studied leadership every chance through seminars, reading and mentors. After a while I was leading directorates and now pass on those lessons learned.

Leadership is a learned skill, you need to study, practice, practice and practice more. Many of the lessons I learned were from failures turned into successes.If I can tell someone five things to help them early in their leadership vision, Id tell them this:Read about past leaders failures and successes to build a tool boxWatch and talk with leaders you know, observe how they speak and made decisionsTake a theatrics course in high school or college to learn how to inspire so people feel your storiesPractice what you learn at any level, volunteer work, school clubs/sports or familyDo things that strengthen your honestly, competency, inspiring skills, forward looking and dont worry about mistakeslearn from themEnjoy the journey.

How did Charles Darwin contribute to science?

Charles Darwin, was among the most conspicuous individuals of the eighteenth century who, by virtue of the great advances in scientific instrumentation, printing and publication, and world travel at that time, had been led to an inevitable understanding of the reality of biological evolution by natural selection. This was contemporaneously (and independently) figured out by Alfred Russel Wallace. Fast mounting evidence was making this mechanism clear to many. The fruit was ripe for the picking!In fact the process of natural selection had been exactly identified and published many years before by Patrick Matthew. Darwin was later forced to admit this as follows:"I have been much interested by Mr. Patrick Matthew's communication in the Number of your Paper, dated April 7th. I freely acknowledge that Mr. Matthew has anticipated by many years the explanation which I have offered of the origin of species, under the name of natural selection."Arthur Koestler, in "The Act of Creation" whimsically put another spin on it:"With a pinch of salt it could be said that Darwin's essential achievement was to combine the evolutionary philosophy of Anaximander, who taught that man's ancestor was an aquatic animal and that the Earth and its inhabitants were descended from the same Prime Material, with the philosophy of Empedocles who taught the survival of the fittest among the random aggregations of organic forms."Lucky guesses that, centuries later, were to be confirmed by observation of a wealth of new data.

How did the Indian economy adapt to the globalization comment?

Protests from the people affected in different countries, more so in Russia and few other former Soviet Republics in Central Asia and Eastern Europe and in South America as late as September and October 2004, indicate that the USS agenda of globalisation is increasingly meeting with resistance from a wider section of people. The LTA government with its left Allies that has assumed power at the centre in India in May 2004, has also promised to re-look at the reforms pursued and make it people-friendly, particularly those along the margins of the society socially and economically.The World Bank too has been considering a review of reforms for the benefit of wider sections of the society. People in the rural areas in India, now benefited by the painstaking work of the NGOs and the media, have become articulate on questions of environmental degradation by the Transnational Corporations dumping of hazardous wastes and people-to-people friendship across the boundaries. For instance, despite threats to their lives from the militants in Jarnmu and Kashmir, people in Indian Kashmir and in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir have been vociferously demanding opening of transportation links across.Similarly, in the Barmer district of Rajasthan and across the international border at Sindh, people have been eager for a promised route from Kokraphar to Murabas. In short, policy makers, and the media have realised that people to people relationships impact enormously the process of sustained peace and averting conflicts. Peoples action based on the ideology of human centredness has emerged as the key to questions of peace and conflict. Concern for human beings has come to occupy centre stage. The existing regional and international organisations like the Asla-Pacific Economy Forum, European Union, SAARC have been focusing on bringing about peoples access across restrictive boundaries

Do you trust the Federal government?

Yeah, I trust the federal government to do pretty much all of its major functions.After social programs have been around for a few years, they tend to work very well. There is very little administrative overhead for Medicare. Medicaid pays less money than private companies for comparable insurance. Food Stamps go out very efficiently. Social security checks are virtually always on time and in the right amount. I do not question the national safety of the United States. I eat food and breathe air without worrying that I am exposing my body to harmful toxins. I don't worry about internal surveillance because I feel that there's not really a reason a normal, law-abiding citizen should worry about such things.The tax system is complicated and inefficient but that's not really a matter of trust.

Importantly, I trust the federal government to give states leeway to improve upon the federal system, so I may choose a home that better fits what I personally want government to do.Actually, I don't really trust our Department of O̶f̶f̶e̶n̶s̶e̶ Defense to make decisions that foster good, peaceful, long term relations with foreign nations. But I think we're moving in the right direction.

So generally speaking, yes, I trust the federal government.This answer is not a substitute for professional medical advice.

Was Winston Churchill bad? Some say he was a warmonger, a tyrant, and a mass murderer. So what is the truth?

Some people dislike Churchill because he expressed reluctance about Indias indpedence movement and breaking up the old British Empire. In the end, only the creation of the British Commonwealth of Nations placated him.To this I say that Churchill was not perfect He was, in retrospect, a little too in love with the glory of the Empire in its heyday. He had romantic ideas about Empire that ignored the rights of people not to be exploited.But it is wrong again, in retrospect to call Churchill a warmonger. The desire for peace through negotiation is a noble sentiment, but one time it failed in a major way was in going up against Hitler. Churchill clearly saw that the appeasement policy had failed with the Nazis. So another way had to be found.Churchills sentiments were not altogether wrong, even if he was too married to the idea of a British Empire. Britain, no matter what its flaws, had come to stand for moderation, tolerance of dissent, respect for human life, and the rule of law.

Even though his vision of these values had a conservative spin, he was right in defending them in opposition to the complete rejection of law, freedom, and justice demonstrated by the Nazi regime.Theres simply no comparison. Consider what wouldve happened if the Nazis had ruled India. Not only would Gandhi have been permanently imprisoned and tortured, but the Nazis response, every time there the slightest uprising, wouldve been to line up the men of a village and shoot every other one. They wouldve engaged in mass killings long before they wouldve granted independence

Is the Coronavirus (COVID-19) actually killing more people than what is reported?

Certainly.Let's review:China was the epicenter of the disease and as an autocracy has little incentive for factual information to reach the public or the wider world - It should be assumed that death toll rates provided by the government of Vhina are either false or are "massaged" to make them more "appealing".Since the disease is currently hitting the elderly and those with chronic illnesses the hardest, many deaths were almost certainly misdiagnosed as something else - People who died before January of 2020 were probably deemed to have died from pre-existing medical conditions or influenza, and not because of the virus.There are a surprisingly low number of reported cases from countries with vast populations - Brazil, Indonesia, Russia,and India have all recorded minimal numbers of cases, despite all having health care systems which are strained during "normal" times. No one has any useful knowledge concerning how many people are dying (or have died) in those countries alone.It takes time to gather accurate information - The death toll will climb when records are reviewed and deaths assumed to have been related to other medical conditions are found to have been coronavirus.There are no wide scale testing regimens in area which are now being hit - Unless or until testing becomes widely available, then people are going to grow ill, spread the disease, and die without any records until after the fact.

Yes, the COVID-19 death tolls reported by the media are "guesstimates" based upon KNOWN cases. They certainly don't reflect the spread of the illness; nor do they reflect deaths that occurred prior to January of 2020
