What are the roles of a state and why shouldn’t the State give absolute freedom to citizens
We believe that freedom liberty and freedom of expressions are absolutely important. What we do say, however, is that absolute freedom; absolute liberty is nothing but anarchy. If everyone is allowed to do as they please that is just chaos and anarchy. As conservatives we believe that periods of stability like we have today are exceptions. The history is anything but stability. The history is anything but peaceful.
Look at the history these period, the period we are enjoying today with the presence of Indian state, trust me this is an exceptional period. Otherwise your history has always been violent and chaotic. With different inventions with different kinds forces, with different kinds of, you know, inventions that are going on and that is true for the world over. The nature is not peaceful. The world is not peaceful. The stability is not natural. The stability is something which is created artificially. So why we do agree with freedom and liberty, we also believe that order and stability are equally important. And that is why we have a State.
Now people say that Indian State is oppressive. Lots of people in the liberals say that Indian state is very oppressive. The left says Indian state should be over thrown completely because it is the evil construct. But any state is oppressive by its very presence. Why do the States come into existence? The States came into existence because of two things. Number one to defend the people. Their own people what they classified their own people and the second thing is not very charitable to say, but to wage war on the others. This is the origin of the state if you back into the history. You can give many other theories, the Marxist told and this that but the purpose of the State is very simple in my opinion if you go back as back as possible.
Now state is very oppressive very simply by its very existence. But we do tolerate state, we do need the state. Why? Because we bargain some of our freedom and liberty in return of some kind of safety and stability.
