The Perfect World Discourse

chapter 1

There is no point in crying over spilt milk. The bowl is always overflowing. And the crying never ends. There is a big bowl that is overflowing. And the milk falls on the ground and wastes itself. There is crying. The crying that never ends. The population of human beings is the milk that overflows from this planet that is the bowl. The efforts to improve the lot of the less fortunate is the crying that ever ends. For the spilling of milk and crying to stop, first of all, we the evolved human beings of this planet ought to recognize the simple truth: ‘There is no use crying over spilt milk.’ Second, we ought not to assign a place on the outside of the bowl for a single droplet of milk. While pouring the milk into the bowl, let us try not to cram in but to leave space. Third, cool down the milk. Let us prepare the little that we have, as well as we can.

chapter 2

The child is precious. Not because he can be someone or do something. But because in him lies precious potential which will be of any good whatsoever only if he is given the treatment he deserves. The child is precious. Not because he is capable of being great and useful, but because he is fragile, undiscovered and hence broken in many places due to careless handling. During his lifetime, he mends the broken places and often ends up contorted and twisted. Don’t you see how precious the child is? How much he deserves to be protected?

chapter 3

Human need. Where there are humans there is human need. If there are no humans, there is no human need. If there are too many humans, there is too much human need and not all human needs can be met. Humans slowly become inhuman because they are no longer being treated like humans. What a pity that the majority of the most evolved of creatures have to live like lesser-evolved creatures! What an even greater pity when living below human standards is considered normal, right from childhood! Man is not equal everywhere. One man gets a lot more than another. More basically, child is not equal everywhere. One child gets a lot more than another. Nowhere is disparity and injustice greater than here. After all these millennia of existence, humans haven’t corrected this imbalance. And the new child born into this world, still asks him, ‘Why this disparity? Why?’ And he has no answer. The child asks him, ‘Why bring me into this world when you don’t have enough for me…’ And, ‘When I always will be considered a lesser human?’ And he has no answer.

Is there any sense in pouring milk into the bowl after the bowl is full? What is the milk good for if no one drinks it? What is the good in pouring milk faster than one can drink it? What is the good in spilling milk all over the place? Worse, what is the good in crying over spilt milk? If you pour milk faster than one can drink it, it spills. If you pour milk faster than one can add sugar, it will be tasteless. If you wait till you have the required amount of sugar, extra flavors, vitamins and minerals to add to the predetermined amount of milk you are going to pour into the bowl, then the milk will not ask you, ‘Why this disparity? Why do milk in other bowls get all the sugar, flavors, vitamins and minerals and not me?’…. And, ‘Why pour me at all if you cannot treat me well and let me be the best I can be?’ Some bowls have vitamins, minerals and flavors added to sweet milk. Some bowls have just sweet milk. Some bowls have raw milk. But most bowls just have milk being poured into them senselessly and endlessly, where the milk is not enhanced in quality in any way, where most of the milk spill over and die.

chapter 4

There is but one principle we ought to keep in mind. As quantity increases beyond a limit, quality has to decrease below a limit. The right to reproduce is such a fundamental right that few people in human history have dared to tamper with it. To take away this fundamental right is not in anyone’s power. Families build strong houses with high gates and walls to secure the safety of family members. Nations pile up weapons and build armies to ensure national security. But what are they securing? A bunch of humans with no hope or desire to live? A bunch of humans who cheat, steal or even kill to survive? A bunch of the rich who live their whole lives preferring to look the other way? We are only securing despair, hopelessness and treachery for generations to come. So, let us instead secure the future of the unborn child. And hence prevent the seeds of hopelessness and treachery from being sown.

chapter 5

Nations ought to require a certain, acceptable degree of basic financial capability as a condition by law for anyone who wishes to be a parent. Besides bringing such a law into effect, the government should strive to improve the quality of life of children in as many ways as possible. Not just because they deserve it, but also because they are helpless to live quality lives without our help. Children should have access to the best of the best, free to an extent. If you decide to become a parent, how financially sound will you be? Surely, you will not take such an important step in your life if you were steeped in debt or if you seriously doubted your financial soundness. Yet, what a major part of humanity does is precisely that. With such a foolish step, they only ensure a wretched living for their own offspring as well as for generations to come. Unless we value the formative years of the unborn child and make no compromise whatsoever on that value, besides increasing that value regularly, humans will continue to get lesser and lesser than what they deserve and live in more and more inhuman conditions.

chapter 6

What happens is this: An undeveloped country is like a bowl into which milk is being poured all the time. Most of the milk spills over. There is no space left in the bowl for any more milk to be poured. But senselessly and endlessly, the milk keeps being poured. The milk spills over to the ground, where it lives below the dignity of being in the bowl and where it has no hope of having extra vitamins, minerals and flavors added to it. The government tries to stop the spilling by making the bowl bigger. What the government should do is stop the pouring of milk completely and begin adding sugar, minerals and vitamins to the milk. If they try to make the bowl bigger, as well as add sugar and nutrients to the milk, without stopping the pouring of milk, there will never be enough sugar and nutrients for all the milk. Soon, the government and people have to make compromises on the amount of sugar and nutrients they really need. A developed country is like a bowl into which milk is being poured at a much slower rate with respect to that in an underdeveloped country. Still, in no country, has a law been effected so that the milk is not spilled at all, where human dignity is not allowed to go below a certain limit. Milk is spilled everywhere. Since the rate of pouring of the milk is much slower with respect to that in an underdeveloped country, the milk that remains in the bowl is much richer in sugar and nutrients. Moreover, the case most often is that the bowl is smaller too. Which in turn makes it more likely that sugar and nutrients are rarely not enough.

chapter 7

The child is precious. We ought to value every living moment of every child. We ought to value those moments. Simply because children are the ones most helpless against injustice of any kind. If all mankind are brothers and sisters, does the brother in one part of the world deserve more than the brother in another part, especially when he is only a few years old and has no means to be even? Should not the law forbid any child from ever being born unless he or she can, at the very least live like a human for the first few helpless years? Should not the law try to protect the cause of the weakest of the weak, who didn’t even ask to be born, before it rushes to the aid of the stronger ones? Should not the law forbid parenthood unless the person wishing to become a parent is financially sound enough to provide for his or her children? And the government, should it not do its part by ensuring that a law to this effect is enacted and enforced, above everything else?

May we value the living moments of children above all else. Trying to make the bowl bigger or trying to find more sugar and nutrients won’t be any good if milk is being poured into the bowl, gallon after gallon, endlessly and senselessly, even as the bowl continues to overflow. The solution is to pour milk into the bowl only after enough sugar and nutrients are ready, so that the milk won’t be tasteless or lacking in extra nutrients, at a rate not higher than the rate at which it is drunk from the bowl, so that it does not spill and no one has to cry over it.
