From "Skin in the Game"
Mediocristan: Domain where the effects of a random event are contained, and don't have an impact on the System.

Extremistan: Domain where effects of random event impact other entities in the system, & in worst case bring about ruin of the entire system.
Examples for Mediocristan:Deaths due to drowning in the Bathtub, crossing roads. Examples for Extremistan: Deaths due to Epidemic Disease, Terrorism.
Thus while % of people dying due to drowing in Bathtubs might be higher than % of people dying due to Ebola, the latter is risker
More urgency ought to be shown to avoid a bad event from happening in Extremistan compared to avoiding a bad event happening in Mediocristan - Hence we see a large proportion of effort to contain an epidemic or to prevent terrorist activities.
It is prudent to be risk averse in Extremistan. This is a opaque domain and we don't really understand why things work. So substituting something that is known to work for a large period of time by something untested (or tested only in theory) is extremely risky.
Almost all social matters are from Extremistan. Hence one ought to be very cautious when trying to bring about change in these matters (no matter in the name of which ideology), because there is a risk of system ruin.
The risk is higher when the agent that aims to bring about such change is the state, through the instrument of Law, for not only can it expose society to risk of ruin, but it can accelerate the process towards the ruin.
There is a greater urgency to repeal such interventions especially when the observed effects have been adverse. Remember, one does not have the luxury of time when one is trying to mitigate a risk in Extremistan.
Since the Indian Independence, the Indian State has deliberately interfered in the affairs of the Hindu Civilization, in the name of the fad that was in vogue at that point. The Indian constitution was a complete break from the nation's civilizational past.
The consequence of this has been the loss of traditional knowledge systems, practices, social mores, dietary habits; the time tested filtering mechanisms that contributed to the survival of our hoary civilization.
Thus, the importance of the #HinduCharter should be seen in this light. The Charter reminds the Indian state that it is the custodian of the Indian civilization, and should urgently cease from continuing with its disastrous interventions.…
The urgency is paramount since every day that goes by with the interventions remain unchecked hastens the rate at which the civilization approaches its collapse. /END

Just finished re-reading the chapter on "Anti-Hindu Laws in Goa" from "The Goa Inquisition". I suppose it was @by2kaafi sir who once said
Maru:Sword :: Preta:Law.

Truer equivalence hasn't been made. It is perfect.
The Portuguese followed the Carrots & Sticks approach.
Sticks - Destroy temples, prevent their upkeep. Drive out influential Hindus. Make it difficult for Hindus to lead a normal life. And snatch away orphans. Making women forcefully listen to Christian doctrine
There were three key things that the Portuguese did to dismantle Hinduism in Goa. They attacked what they thought was the source, the transmission medium and the heirs of the Hindu tradition.

So after yesterday's verdict, what will be the outcome if an oppressed member of the Hindu community moves the court demanding access into the Garbhagudi?
Remember, the courts for all its virtue signalling over freedom of speech, and "dissent is safety valve" will waste no time in throwing out someone who dissents against them.
So the courts reserve the right to maintain propriety in their domain, while deny the same to Hindus in their religious domain. Why?

Met our neighbor's kid who is studying in 7th standard. They are having exams now. He finished Social exam today. Asked him what do they teach.

"History is the most difficult one. Too many kings to learn about"

Which Kings I asked him 1/
"Mughals. Akbar the great who was the strongest. But there are others. There is Babue, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan, Aurangazeb." 2/
What happened after that, I asked him.
"After that the kingdom broke into many pieces. The rulers after Aurangazeb were not strong" 3/
