    Kulasekarapattinam as an ISRO launch site is in news again, locals are opposing it.

    Even the neutrino project, a lot of people were actually happy (know some people with land there) that the project was coming up and the land prices were going up... ngo funded news on the other hand made it look like something else. Soon the usual suspects Vaiko/pmane etc will descend upon the place and twitter hashtags will begin.

    No building Roads, because land should be used for farming, and building causes pollution.
    No building science projects that makes use of unique properties that TN has, because pollution.
    No building factories...as pollution, we dont want factories and we want only farming, farming is best.
    No extraction/using minerals and resources as pollution, and farmers
    No building dams or river linking, as environment is altered and damaged, farmers who need water can go to hell.
    No nuclear power plants or coal plants but also want 24 hours power.

    Amit Shah needs to crackdown hard and fast. I have been giving warning for a week.

    This Hindi - Tamil language narrative is from the same award wapsi gang. They want to create mass political unrest in TN, KL and WB.

    WB is getting contained but TN may spin out of control.

    Big difference is we are not China for many reasons

    1. We did not have Soviets transfer the nuke designs to their communist ally as a bulwark against possible republican re-takeover.

    2. The same Soviets happily transferred preliminary missile designs and jet aircaft assemby lines to PRC (F-7 a clone of Mig-21), thinking the latter would be indebted forever.

    3. Sino-Soviet split in 1969, allowed the West to step in and they took over where the Soviets left. They decided that Cheen should be propped up as a bulwark against Soviet Marxist-Lenninist worldview and they happily supplied Cheen with rockets, technology and space tech. However, it was not until 1996 that their Long March series of rockets became reliable after haramkhor laundibaaz Clinton signed wavers upon wavers allowing the transfer of sensitive tech to Cheen despite reservations and opposition from his security and intelligence apparatus.

    4. Mao send 30 million of his people to death, do you think he cared if there was resentment due to famine and shortage of food?

    5. CCP does not have worry about elections, about votes, about what people think. However, I'll still be very interested to see stats that show how much Cheen spend on R&D in those famine years.

    6. Soviets focussed almost entirely on military and associated R&D. Didn't help them much in 1991 did it?

    In every open and democratic society, R&D investment is the first to see the axe when economic hardships come calling- we saw in the US after the second Iraq war, Western Erope has seen some of the sharpest decline in research funding in the past decade. In Japan, funding has stagnated and it's beginning to plateau in Korea as well. Other examples include Canada, Australia etc.

    Japan & korea are USA vassals. Calling them democracy is absurd.

    Secondly, USSR gave full Technology transfer to India fir Mig21 and gave lot if Technology for civilian sector. China did not get all Technology from USSR either. China developed its own missile and space launch vehicle with some reverse engineering of USSR ones. China made its own nuclear submarine, not from USSR help. USA hardly have any technology to China in any manner. China were pretentions their icbm for some time since they made it in 1960s. Saying that usa have Technology is highly absurd. China and USA has pretty bad relationship after tianamen incident which China blamed USA for sponsoring it. So, China developed and completed their missile as they advanced in semiconductor and cool make reliable navigation

    Whether India is China or not is irrelevant. Whether India is government by ideology it not is more relevant. People are willing to sacrifice themselves for greater good as long as a country is ideologically government. If China was as reckless as you state, USA would have intervened and got Mao overthrown by supporting rebellion. It was the Chinese themselves who accepted the capability limits and sided with Mao despite famines. Mao did not kill 2-3 crore people by ordering execution. He just could not stop famines from killing people as none were willing to give food to China and China simply did not have enough food for itself

    So, again, R&D will not be cut during downturn unless the Technology has peaked or the government is filled with traitors. Europe or USA did nit cut down on defence R&D ever and only cut down unnecessary R&D in non critical areas
