According to Journal of Contemporary World Affairs, Current History, January 2013 edition, it is expected that the global temperature will increase by 4 degree Celsius by the year 2100, which causes unpleasant consequences in, inundation of coastal cities, risk for food production, unprecedented heat waves and water scarcity. This is quite threatening and the world is quite aware of such bad condition and aspects ye to come since such consequence could demand certain policy changes on the affected areas and sectors of the human life.
What is quite interesting is not on the weather threat, but the other research that was published in that given journal, in which in another page, it states that the number of people in poverty fell from 1.9 billion to 1.4 billion, and the number of people who are in below poverty line( $1 per day) fell from 1.5 billion to 0.8 billion from and between years 1981 to 2005. It is quite something to wonder in here that global warming and temperature is raising in past decades which do have an effect on global productivity in which change in climate alters agricultural productivity which is directly linked to way of human life in securing food and other necessities of human life unless and otherwise other possible mechanisms are employed.
The point in here is that poverty and poor way of life is directly related with way of life in which food security is one thing in which such given food security is commonly linked with productivity and production in which weather is one big factor for such given growth and developments nations acquire since water is one source of making plants grow and thus climate is another factor in which conducive climate is helpful not only for agricultural products but also human way of life.
When productivity is in question, the idea of demand and supply thing come on stage in which when there is low productivity, price goes to high. In this case, as per the case of inflation in which inflation hit almost all currencies in past decades, the purchasing power of every money is getting depleted year by year which do increase as one of the reasons, the cost of living to be on raise. In such plane of existence, we are given data that people in poverty and below poverty line do decrease since nations and societies have their own style and way of keeping such data to down, which one could understand from both data presented.
Although artificial methods, by means of technologies, are applied in preserving and controlling such threats, since the are only helpful in artificial manner, their long term consequences, their impact on long term health conditions and aspects of the human life are not that clearly studied and known, people live using them since the have no choice. What is mostly connected in here is beside such given global temperatures threats in which as global threats goes to different direction—the way of ruling also changes in the political movement and directions in this world—which is more of beyond control thing since it is shift toward nature, but how those people administer such given shift of nature from one color to another. Is such shift of nature reflection of type of leadership or governing system nations and societies are doing? Or it has many other scientific justifications as delivered as of today?
This world in most parts was governed and is now also under way, by three different styles and way of governing society, which also exist on the present day society. The firs one is way of ruling society by self claimed authority and power from God in which divinity was mixed up with leadership in which kings and monarchs used to govern this world, and all claim that they receive power and blessing from God and they rule their respective society by the claimed grace they have acquired from God which their respective society have no clue. This was more of dictatorial leadership.
Such given dictatorial leadership was later on overthrown and removed by another dictatorial style in which they were remove by coup deta and revolutions which their respective society have put on the stage due to the anger and frustration such given way of leaderships have resulted on the side of the public, this is mostly true in Europe and other developing countries as well. Amongst such dictator leaders that were borne in that given movement were Adolf Hitler, Napoleon and the like, could be mentioned. And then such given way of leading society was later on replaced by democracy. People and society start replacing dictatorial leadership into democratic way of life.
These three stages and ways of governing people and society are inevitable in most cases and part of the world although both three ways and styles of leaderships are still on stage. Few countries have dictatorial leadership; other has still kings and monarchs and others use democratic way of ruling society. The rest are details and mini- classifications and they do some kinds of plastic surgeries and some kind of adjustments to such given and such basic leadership styles.
They say democracy immunizes a society from the worst form of government, democracy also protects society from the worst form of economic disaster, in way that they connect democracy with any given prosperity any given nation and society aspires and achieves. Thy also say dictatorship results in famine and poverty in way that they connect such way of administration with disaster and stresses any given nation and society suffer.
To the contrary, there are countries and societies which are labeled and categorized as dictators and dictatorial style of leadership, but they do have registered greater economic strength and growth than to those nations and societies who are assumed that they have employed democratic style and democracy in their leadership style such as Cuba, Venezuela, China and the like. This does not mean that democracy is not the cause of prosperity in which the United States and other European countries are good examples in this regard as they have installed stronger and better economic growth since they have established democracy in their culture and leadership style.
Most relate the idea of democracy with freedom in which freedom is mostly connected with way of life in which there are people who claim that freedom is luxury to starving society, which should not be the case and reality since freedom can be necessity to starving society since people in here fight to have both bread and freedom on simultaneous basis. Bread is the daily and basic necessity of any given individual as freedom is one of the basic necessities of life as society. They are both basic distinct needs and prerequisites of life.
Few experts claim that the expected life of democracy in those nations whose per capita income is below $1,000 is maximum of eight years; to those nations whose capital is between $1000-4000 is 18 years, and in those nations whose per capita income is more than $4000 is 100% in which they purely associate and relate wit GDP. In reality, political system has direct relation and is reflection of economic growth and structure which is the fact and reality, but there are societies who claim that they have more than 8 years experience of having democracy within their nations even if they have per capita income of less than $1000. It is crystal clear that such nations are expected to install the type of democracies which are experimented by those who have more than $4000 per capita income.
Such given way of perceiving democracy is derived from the idea of believing that some societies are not even ready for democracy since they think that societies who do not achieve certain level of economic development are not matured enough to develop and practice the idea and practice of democracy. Such given way of perceiving democracy is narrow minded since there are societies in the middle eastern part of this world that have higher per capita income but they have closed their homes and doors to such democracy since they have preferred their own way of ruling and administering their nations and societies by virtue of their own principle, morals, belief and ideology they have selected to practice in their life and world too.
Afterwards, people start deriving and make all kinds of plastic surgeries to the basic idea of democracy and they come up with labels and tags like commodities in the market, and they categorize and divide into different features and colors since labeling ad categorizing is one of the becoming nature of this world, and they say, liberal democracy, neo-liberal democracy and other types of democracy in way they use the basic tenets of democracy, but do some kind of plastic surgery to it, to the extent opposing the idea and concepts of democracy, but they go forward in way the get merit out of it. If democracy is about freedom, equality and justice, it is useless drama to put all kinds tags since it is only one democracy—which is about respecting the right and freedom of the mass— that should exist as basis. The Muslim tradition says, knowledge is single point but the foolish have multiplied it.
While such theatrical drama is on stage it is not possible to correlate wealth and democracy since there are nations and societies have developed and acquired greater economic growth and wealth strength without democracy. Both are not something at can be related and correlated and connected in way social scientists claim. In this world, social realities are one of the difficult arguments which are hard to be accurate and exact like the case and the field of psychology claim and the like. There are many inaccurate findings that exist to date which govern human society and the dictate as if they are touchstones and truths, but they should be verified and rechecked again.
It is important to underline and take a note in here that democracy and its values are something that can not only be incorporated in nation’s political institutional structures and framework, but also the concepts and its principles should be manifested and reflected in every house since the purpose of buying democracy as way of life is not only to have showy image and structures by the outward looking orientations such given nations employ but rather it should be induced in every household by delivering vibrant energy so that real change and transformation can take place, otherwise if societies just copy and paste the outward form, it cannot bring about real change in any given society undertaking.
Democracy and democratic systems is also criticized in its slowness in decision making and solving things in immediate basis by its very nature and character democracy and its systems are managed. Hence, most put harsh criticism on such given system since it does not resolve conflicts and problems on immediate basis. Consequently, it incurs any given system to pay expensive costs due to such given reason since it is tie where time is running and slipping way from every hand since things are changing in fast and so quick in time.
