Tracking the speeches of President Barack Obama is always a revelatory exercise and such was the case with his address to the Indian Parliament today.
During Obama’s speech to the Indian Parliament he drew comparisons between Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King. He expressed his hope that India will be added to the United Nations Security Council.
What Obama did not address during his speech to the Indian Parliament is also telling and is perhaps the greatest reason for the resurgence of India as a global economic power, it’s commitment to entrepreneurialism.
He did talk about the Indian people but almost always in the context of the social struggle for equality within the framework of civil inequities and inequalities.
Meet the Real India – Indpendent and Entrepreneurial
India is surging on the world scene because of its commitment to the power of the individual to create economic solutions and provide a society and the world with desired products and services.
President Barack Obama, being the socialist he is, doesn’t understand the concept and power of individualism and entrepreneurialism. He views society and economics almost solely through the tainted lens of class struggle.
India’s economic engine is being fueled by the largest surge in entrepreneurialism ever seen in global history…Obama completely ignored this…just as he does in the United States.
It’s about the Power of Capitalism, Mr. President
India’s middle class growth has been almost entirely predicated upon its creation of millions of service-sector jobs with companies like Microsoft…Obama missed this…just as he does in the United States.
India’s power is largely attributed to its commitment to the freedom of individualism and the right to pursue one’s own destiny…Obama disregarded this…just as he does in the United States.
The commitment to civil rights and class struggle is the common thread of Barack Obama’s world view and his perception of the forces that create and sustain a political foundation. His speeches reveal either a disregard for individualism and its contribution to a growing society and economy or, complete ignorance.
