Part of the political mission of this blog is to develop a culture of pluralism, diversity of views and political opinions on issues and subjects of national importance for a healthy and free society we all aspire to have.

Some people, not well versed with democratic principles, see non-conforming personal positions as troublesome. That is not the case in most instances. The landmarks of a free society is freedom of thought, expression and association.

Secondly, there must be a free press and clear constitutional separation of power.

In the absence of the above, you would be flatly wrong to call any other society as free men and women in any given country.
