How does Indian society make sure that it elects leaders who are capable and loyal to the country ?
Can you change the title to Strategic Citizenry of India? i.e. what strategies citizens should deploy so that leaders = Nbjprie deter from becoming traitors?
brihaspati: How do you define "loyalty to the country"?
Rahul Mehta: TRIVIAL.
1. Loyal to Constitution as interpreted by citizens (not judges)
2. Loyal to Indian citizens
3. hunts down external enemies
4. hunts down internal enemies - violent criminals, tax evaders and corrupt
5. No corruption
brihaspati : ...
1. "Interpretation of Constitution" by citizens will depend on individual citizens, or subgroups - there is no guarantee of uniformity of interpretation.
2. And you will also need to specify the order of preference/priority/precedence that exists between 1,2,3,4,5. Loyalty to an Indian citizen comes lower in priority when that citizen has been judged an "internal enemy" - 4 >>2 ? There can be cases where different ordering become necessary? Will not that ordering be itself the result of values not stated here? Can such value-systems be guaranteed to be uniform?
3. What is the resolution procedure for contradictions between two value-systems? If you really want to clarify, please do on NBJPRE thread.
1. When there is a 11 judge bench, there will be 11 interpretations of Constitution, and final resolution is done by majority vote. Same way, the citizens can resolve their difference via majority voting.
2. Yes. Different people may give different priorities amongst 1-5.
3. Majority vote, Jury (randomly chosen sample of citizenry) etc.
