An Alarming paradox emerges from witnessing prevalent national currents over the past three decades. The ominous paradox is that despite the demonstrable political wisdom of the humble voter and the valiant attempts of the common citizen to seek a semblance of material progress and social equity, those with money, power and influence have relentlessly pushed the country into a wildly individualist quagmire of greed, self-indulgence and cruelty.

A country where there are no standards or rules to carry out even the simplest social transaction, where everything is permissible, where anything goes. The largest democracy has become The Maverick Republic.
