Q:On whether he would like to have the kind of authoritarian power that China’s leader has:
A: India is a democracy; it is in our DNA. As far as the different political parties are concerned, I firmly believe that they have the maturity and wisdom to make decisions that are in the best interests of the nation. So if you were to ask me whether you need a dictatorship to run India, No, you do not. Whether you need a powerful person who believes in concentrating power, No, you do not. If you were to ask me to choose between democratic values and wealth, power, prosperity and fame, I will very easily and without any doubt choose democratic values.
Well naturally, but there's also 'disagreement to your free speech', vs 'the same disagreement but backed by a criminal justice system'the lynx wrote:My action of expressing my disagreement to your (free) speech demonstrates my own freedom of speech.
