There are 3 kinds of people.
1. Intellectual – who understands everything in its context without judgement and finally when takes a judgement call when the time comes.
2. Simple Man – who lives in his small world and senses everything that is impacting his small world and take a judgement call when the time comes.
3. Ignorant Man – who neither invests his energy to understand everything in the context on his own, who neither limits his perception to that which impacts him and yet go on judging everything with half knowledge based on induced perception by vested interests.
When a country has majority of people with category 3 who can decide running the nation, then that nation will be doomed for failure.
