If peace is to be made, it's up to committed individuals willing to make the commitment to see it through. “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely.” It does confirm a truth about human nature: no fallible and feeble human individual should be entrusted with too much power, and hence, the need for checks and balances. With the Doctrine, it is possible to replace the Rule of Man with the Rule of law. One of the root causes for the emergence of “terrorism” is the non-consideration of the genuine grievances of sections of society by the “democratically” elected governments.. In my humble opinion “true democracy” is practiced by the direct participation of a large number of persons in the “governance” of the country by giving due recognition to the aspirations of the people to develop and safeguard their life and their area of living. "In a civilized society, the people must be empowered and enabled to directly participate in the governance of the country and the best way for the people to empower themselves is, a system of governance that would address the problems faced by various sections of the society - particularly the poor, the politically weak and the various categories of “minorities” who do not carry any “political weight” - would be to DILUTE the powers of all elected representatives of the people by separating the various powers of the Parliament and by horizontally empowering different sets of people’s representatives elected on different area basis to administer the different sets of the separated powers at different locations and thus throughout the country (a small fraction of the Parliament with defined powers and duties functioning in each and every village, division, district and region)".
