On the global stage of the political arena, Imran Khan as leader of the 6th largest populated nation Pakistan has played the game like a naturally gifted captain. His articulated message to the nation now accepted, the Diaspora deployed and the world witnessed the black and white shades of this life and death crisis. Governments when run by fakery, for and by fake leaders or governments when they try to rule with law, social justice and common good. It is not a battle of a single leader; as the same question is now applicable to so many other nations of the world. Pakistan’s model is already a new test where old institutionalized corrupt systems are now digitally exposed and restless populace connected enough to create massive shifts.
The opposition of Imran Khan, eternally-corrupt and permanently-damaged is intellectually-bankrupt, a political tyranny which has now finally swallowed the hook. Like a puppet show, in panic, tongues tied, wings clipped, fluttering around to cover already stripped naked, visibly exposed fakery as their only fluff of existence. There is no escape for them, inside or outside the nation. In deep silence, can they neither swallow power nor spit it out; as lack of honesty is now their demise.
Around the world, other nations in similar types of struggles, traditionally failed in few quick rounds, but Imran Khan has already broken many records; staying power, special courage and stamina, while leading nation and preparing them for the real challenge to appreciate and understand just-societies, poised for value-creation and erase historically corrupt-societies thriving on value-manipulations.
Normally greatest athletes retire in luxury; Imran Khan decided to play with his life and decided to save his nation. This was not a suicidal mission but a fine example of continuously creating narratives, fast-track-foot-working, twisted games of skills, wits and visible tireless courage to lead by examples. His intricate fight with the monstrous anaconda of corruption will now be marked as a point of reference in history as a fine attempt to drain the swamp.
The difficult questions; why is he on this quest, not for the seat of power, but for the common good for common people? Is this the right time, is that the right moment? Is he the right person for a new rebirth of Pakistan? Is this that unique exemplary nation on a crossroad to change global thinking and empower masses of so many other nations? Is he the right messenger whose time has finally arrived? Despite all the real life and death drama spanning over 200 days, is it enough to save and transform a sinking nation?
No, it is not, the eternal-corrupt-teams have everything to win; as a proof, a corrupt system is always badly broken, yet, it is its unique brokenness acting as a super-lubricated vacuum that sucks anything that comes in the way. Like dark-matter, it advances silently, cloak and dagger, slowly strangling the world. Study global indices and inequalities all digitally exposed.
The bitter questions; despite the common support, are the big business sectors, trade groups, chambers of commerce, with him and openly engaged in this struggle or do they still prefer deep corruption to splash their rupee-billionaires in the swamps? Are the institutions finally able to realize that the world left Pakistan decades ago; will they now finally sacrifice their fermented bureaucracies and erase symbols of in-competencies and stand up together to rise up to save nation and face the global age of competitiveness?
The Order of the Swamp; every time in the history of civilization, in every institutionally corrupt nation, the largest majority of the businesses always hold position at the borderline, they never take the lead. Time has come for Pakistan and for its public and all business community to form a solid majority to kick out so few in power in one single afternoon for destroying the remains of the nation and risk breaking the country into pieces.
When tax laws are universally broken by corruption, they are universally criticized but universally remain unchanged, untouched and unprosecuted. When there is no single or collective supreme power left to correct it, this calls for a major change but not from the very top rather to grow from the very bottom. How many nations have corruption problems? How many developed nations have advanced levels of developed corruption? How visible is the power of institutionalized corruption as untouchable, but in hands of the same people asking commoners for votes? Will a grassroots revolution tackle this and what kind of power play will squash it?
Nevertheless, No other time in the history of Pakistan, an outsider did so much in such shorter times as Imran Khan, now a global icon, a bright spot in history, a moving target in great personal danger fighting in swamps of corruption, will the nation be his shield?
Imran Khan never required special schooling to learn fencing and ballroom dancing. There is no need for him to be tested as a refined and trained politician like the previous nobility of the historically corrupted types and their shenanigan measured in the hall of fame as greatest achievements of thievery. Today is a different time, a new age, if the middle class opportunist citizenry of Pakistan feels he is an outsider, it is perhaps the only reason that finally Pakistan will have respect for an outsider for having discovered the real truth and now on way to lead proper governing
The naivety of the institutions from last century and the old sluggish political mastery purely influenced by Machiavellianism, the deception laced maneuvering of citizens considered and practiced by 100 plus nations as an art while for Pakistan, Imran Khan has been routinely criticized for his lack of political experiences against his bold justice driven and seeking common sense based revolution
While winning from corruption is impossible, this time around, is this enough for a real change in Pakistan?
No, it is not, because despite how much the majority of people like him unless the majority of business communities and all major institutions rise up with him as a logical timely solution for a successful new Pakistan, his quest may end up as a chapter in the history of a nation. Therefore, rise up together, as a nation, fight for the common good, as one voice, his quest is now the same quest for every citizen of the nation, understand this very deeply, long live Imran Khan.
The rest is easy
