The Bab & Baha'u'llah illuminated a society and an age shrouded in darkness. They inaugurated a new stage in social evolution: the stage of the unification of the entire human family. #Bahai #TheBab #Bahaullah
The spiritual energies They released into the world infused a new life into every sphere of endeavor, the results of which are evident in the transformation that has occurred.
Material civilization has advanced immeasurably; astounding breakthroughs in #science and #technology have been achieved; the gates to the accumulated #knowledge of humanity have been flung open.

Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

Was going through Balancing of Rights in #AadhaarVerdict. The court examines right to Privacy v/s Right to Food.

This is absolute nonesense. May be the over emphasis on privacy by petitioners caused this.
#Aadhaar is not an enabler (1/n)
#Aadhaar it is a tool for #exclusion . Its not something that guarantees right to food or anything. @UIDAI says they are excluding the ghosts, duplicates & imposters. (However, in practice, thousands of poor and marginalized are denied rations and monthly pensions.)
In concept or design, #Aadhaar 's purpose is not TO GIVE somebody something. Its sole purpose is exclusion.
So there arises no question of #Aadhaar enabling somebody to access food.
