Why Religion still plays an important role in world politics to date?
Religion has got both positive and negative effects, the positive effects of religion are, they make people flock together for a common cause, and they provide some good ethical and moral basis to live in a society in harmony.
However, Religion is exploited by a few individuals from ancient times to grab power in society, unfortunately even in the modern age also this is continuing, and the modern form of governance models like democracy also could not solve this problem.
What is the solution to this problem?
Parents need to educate their children about this for a better society in the future.
Governments pass a law to ban politicians who exploit religion.
Adam Smith and Chanakya were two of the most influential economic thinkers in history.
Their work has had a profound impact on the way we understand and practice economics. While they shared some similar ideas, there were also some important differences between their economic philosophies.
Adam Smith (1723-1790) was a Scottish philosopher and economist who is considered the father of modern economics. His most famous work, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, was published in 1776. In this work, Smith argued that the wealth of a nation was not determined by its gold or silver reserves, but by the productivity of its labor. He also argued that the best way to promote economic growth was to allow markets to operate freely, without government intervention.
Chanakya, also known as Kautilya, (371-297 BCE) was an Indian philosopher, economist, statesman, teacher, and royal advisor. He is considered the pioneer of Indian political economy and his work, Arthashastra, is considered an ancient Indian treatise on statecraft, economic policy, and military strategy.
Here is a table summarizing the key differences between their economic philosophies:
Role of government
View of markets
Should be fair and efficient
Should be used to fund the state
Should be free
Should be regulated
Not a primary concern
Should be provided by the state
Adam Smith and Chanakya who is better?
Despite their differences, Smith and Chanakya both made important contributions to our understanding of economics. Their work has helped to shape the economic policies of nations around the world.
Here are some of the key similarities between their economic philosophies:
Both Smith and Chanakya believed that economic prosperity was essential for a strong state.
Both Smith and Chanakya recognized the importance of trade and commerce.
Both Smith and Chanakya believed that the government should play a role in the economy.
It is important to note that both Smith and Chanakya were writing at different times and for different audiences. Smith was writing in an era of rising capitalism, while Chanakya was writing in an era of feudalism. This means that their views on some issues, such as the role of government, were necessarily different.
Despite these differences, their work has had a lasting impact on our understanding of economics. Their ideas continue to be debated and discussed today.
The dangers of artificial intelligence are showing their effects already, one of the dangers of AI is the ability to create deep fake videos of celebrities and cause damage to their reputation and integrity.
Unfortunately, law and regulatory bodies have yet to catch up with these new technologies, social media platforms have a great responsibility in preventing the circulation of these kinds of videos, however, it is a tough task.
let’s hope in the coming days we get new developments to prevent deepfake videos.
Video editing software and corresponding technologies need to be monitored via an established framework of protocols to authenticate the video before it is getting circulated.
Unfortunately the “Devil is in detail”, that in the age of the internet with the widespread use of technologies, we created a complex spider-web in which we are getting impacted.
even if you discuss this topic in technical terms on a public platform helps criminals to gain more knowledge on this that’s the kind of situation we are in.
