Whistle blowers are they practical? or failed? Anti government agitation in India
Democratic nations and regimes feels the heat. Whistle Blowers new community has emerged .Anna Hazare started anti corruption drive against India government, gathered storm,2G scam and other scams came to light .Later Anna declared that he will form political party to clean the system,people disliked idea and left him.Why it happened? Whistle blowers are less practical, more emotional.
They did job, we need them but sometimes movements slips. Protests, agitation is a basic right in democracy . In anarchic situation people look for Messiah or savior who can lead to bring change.
I defend them.
In Canada, we have 'retaliation' laws which are used to defend 'whistle blowers'. It's to protect them against acts of retaliation (revenge) and may/should prompt investigations. Consumers are protected by 'Consumer Affairs' against price guaging and dishonest business practices. Gov't is supposed to protect it's citizens and the judicial system is used to determine the guilty from the innocent. It gets complex and we do measure character based on actions. Some people who whistle blow may not have leadership qualities but may make excellent investigators. Just some thoughts.
