RESEARCH PAPER PRESENTATION - OXFORD UNIVERSITY
Utilitarianism plays fast and loose with God’s
commandments by incting the Utility theory of "greater
happiness for the greater number - GHGN". If lying, stealing,
or killing could lead to an increase of happiness for the
greatest number, Act Utilitarianism says we should lie, steal
or kill. Isn’t that a rejection of Gods commands? Utilitarianism
is a secular alternative to Divine Command theory; therefore,
the concept of Utilitarianism seems to be on borrowed
ethics which is post facto, not rational or reasoning.
According to classical utilitarianism, the sole moral
obligation is to Maximize utility (= happiness = pleasure).
In this world of sophisticated secular
philosophy, we still debate on what is
right and wrong and we debate on
the metaphysics and the epistemology
of morals. Perhaps our sophistication is
not in line with ethics of the
absolute thought but of a superficial and
self knowledge, subjective and
convenient understanding of morality.
Conceptually sophisticated ethics and
the break down of Moral Absolutism

India – A tri-colour nation, not Saffron!
Dr. Dominic F Dixon has submitted a report of the event to Tabor
Magazine, the official magazine of the Archdiocese of Bangalore.
This report carries information of the current events that have
been systematically orchestrated against the Church in India by
fringe Hindutva groups.
The sad and mysterious demise of an upright IAS officer in Bangalore had brought questions and suspicions to the family and civil society. Dr. Dixon was a leading voice, demanding for a CBI
probe so that the state government has a clear stand. Whether it was a homicide or a suicide, civilians wanted a clean and independent probe due to the sensitive nature of the officer who has
gone head on with the real estate mafia and has recovered almost 200 crores and was about to penalise other companies too. The scene of the crime was contaminated and section 174 of the
Code of Criminal Procedure was violated. Chapter III, 7. Guarding the scene of the crime. The State government finally gave in on Monday, 23rd March, after more than a week of agitation and
handed over the case to the CBI. Dr. Dixon was invited by state and national news channels to discuss and debate on the subject matter.
Please note: Dr. Dixon does not make any judgement on the case and trusts that the principals of natural justice will prevail. Dr. Dixon echoed the cries of the grieving family and civil society
that wanted an independent enquiry. Dr. Dixon respects the rulers of the land with due diligence and has no affiliation with any political party.

NEWS 9: April, 09. 2015:Was on News 9, discussing the pros and cons of the Tender SURE project in Bangalore where extremely
broad pavements have been installed, while narrowing the roads. My take was that instead of having such wide pavements which are
more than 30% of the roads and in some areas, more broader that the roads itself, we could have had an EMERGENCY LANE for
ambulance and fire engines, considering the emergency situation in Bangalore and it's road jams with insensitive and undisciplined
The Tender SURE project taken up by the state government has courted controversies. It has come
to light that the footpaths constructed under this plan are found to be wider than the roads.
NEWS 9: April, 11. 2015: Was on News 9 to discuss the topic of Does Facebook cause depression? We had a panel of experts and
students who shared their views on the subject. My take was, excessive, compulsive and impulsive usage is harmful and could be an
indicator for addiction and in essence, depressive to the consumer. I also stressed that comparison between friends on Facebook
could be healthy if within bounds, for example, if we say that we want India to be like Singapore, that is a healthy comparison which
bench marks us to improve and rejuvenate.

My take was, peaking on the subject of "Net Neutrality" I had raised several points. My analytics indicate that the consultation paper
on the subject by the government is not civilian oriented but corporate oriented. CONSULTATION PAPER: The word consumer 58
times but never in favour of the consumer, but instead, on how the consumer’s revenue would be consumed by the operator. OTT is

NEWS 9: April, 22, 2015: Was on panel to discuss the issue of cyber security, especially for our children and youth who are prone to
online abuse. The concern arose when a Saudi Arabia Facebook page had pictures of young girls and men from around the world,
especially Kerala posted lewd sexual comments about their fantasies with those children
We mainly discussed about the ambiguous cyber laws in India and the lack of will of the cops to act against cyber crimes. My point
on this was, if the cyber crime cell cannot arrest someone for a violation, then why have the cell in the first place?

TIMES NOW SPECIAL: April, 24, 2015: Was on panel to discuss the issue of VVIP RACISM and misuse of political power above the
common man. "What is it that an MP gets that a frequent flyer does not get? Our country is a big country. MPs do travel by air. MP
bashing can be fashionable," Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju issues bizarre VVIP logic.
My point was that when a political minister is put above the common man when the common man is in more need (golf cart at the
aircraft/ water, etc), then that is wrong. Also, the media should remove the PRESS sticker and forfeit privilages.

NEWS 9: May, 01, 2015: On April 30th, Bangalore had experienced un-seasonal, pre-monsoon rains for twenty five minutes which
crippled the city and brought it to its knees. Trees had fallen by the hundreds and ironically at its base which only spoke volumes of
the negligence of the municipality, the BBMP to test and maintain these trees.
Traffic was at its worst because of the pot holes, again the inefficiency of the BBMP. On the show, the BBMP Commissioner

NEWS X: May, 01, 2015: In light of the growing number of cases of psychological and physical assault on students in India, the
government needs to take strict measures to curb this dangerous act.
My take was, that teachers should first be psychologically evaluated before being employed as a teacher because many of these
teachers have their own psychologically undealt-with emotions that periodically erupt. Further, as a psychologist who has counselled and
trained many teachers around the world, I mentioned that many (not all) of these teachers have their own biological children of the same
age as their students and not being successfully in disciplining their own kids, they take it out on their students as a control mechanism.

- 307. Attempt to murder.
The officials have done exactly that. The cop is booked and terminated and will not enjoy immunity or protection under the state police

NEWS 9, June, 05, 015: Nobody can deny the fact that Indian society is still struggling to understand homosexuality - it's rights and
wrongs. But a recent incident in Bengaluru has sent shock waves across the nation. According to reports, a mother raped her son to cure
his homosexuality in the name of carrying out a corrective rape, which has become a bitter reality in India.
Apparently, the gay boy was forced to have sex with his mother to change his sexual orientation. According to LGBT Collective in
Telangana, families are seeking help from relatives to shockingly 'cure' their children by raping them. And, though it may sound
completely disgusting, the group has received as many 15 reports of 'corrective rape' in the last five years, as reported by Dailymail.

TIMES NOW: July, 02, 2015: #VVIPRACISM: I was on two segments of Times Now debate yesterday on the ongoing VVIP culture in
India. I had pulled up the Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis, Kiren Rijiju, MoS Union Home Ministry and MK Stalin of the
DMK. The BJP Minister on the debate had argued with me when I had questioned the " unacceptable tolerance" of the Prime Minister in
connivance with his erring ministers.
My response was "The PM is the captain of the country and his cabinet - and if he does not lead the country and his ministers, who will?
If he does not take appropriate actions against corrupt ministers, who else will? It is because he is inactive and a man will hollow words,
that the media and activists are addressing the matter."

NEWS 9 & TIMES NOW: July/ 6-7/ 2015: Supreme Court gender biased ruling: An unwed mother can become the guardian of a
child, without the consent of the father." What precedent is the SC setting with the encouragement to a "disgruntled" mother to
deprive the child's father of its existence and paternal care?
My points were:
(a) it is not about the mother or about women, it is about the mother being selfish and depriving the CHILD of a father.
(b) The court should have applied its mind that it's not about monetary stability of the mother, but the domain of family, where the
father's presence is as equal as the mothers.
(c) The court should have taken the father into consideration to see whether he wanted to be ex parte or a part of the child's life; as
the woman could have been disgruntled towards the man whom she had an illicit affair with, thereby ruining a family and destroying
the life on another WOMAN.
(d) The Supreme Court verdict is incomplete and incorrect and is gender biased.
(e) At this rate, we are heading towards a nation of fatherless children who will grow up to become criminal offenders, as statistics
has warned us that in the absence of a father, the child is prone to self destruction.
SUPREME COURT: An unwed mother can become the guardian of a child,
without the consent of the father.

Brigade road. The city corporation, BBMP on behalf of the BMTC had installed two e-toilets on the war memorial. The memorial was
established during Pre-independence for the soldiers who had laid down their lives for the country.
The Army officials have been requesting the city corporation from February to remove the toilets as the establishment of the toilet block
right next to the War Memorial tantamounts to an insult to the supreme sacrifice of countless soldiers in the line of duty

NEWS 9: August/03/2015: Was on panel for a discussion on Pornography and it's ban. I had iterated that consumers of porn develop a
change in brain function as it leads to addiction. Further, I reiterated that because of the addictive nature of porn, the government should
come out with statutory warnings on the lines of tobacco and alcohol.
A internet company executive stated that "What's nudity to one person might be art to someone else." Well, my response is that (a) "art
is not meant to titillate the perverted sexual appetite of people; (b) art does not change brain function into toxic thoughts of it's
consumers; (c) art is not addictive.
THE PORN DEBATE
05.08.2015, Just as any movie would have a script writer, a director and actors; it is the same with the pornographic industry. As there
are genres in the media industry; the same exists in the adult entertainment industry too. One such type of audience and consumers are
those with sexual fetishism to view child pornography. However, while our government prohibits and bans child pornography, the
pornographic industry is currently beating the Indian system– simply by portraying young boys and girls as little children – consequently
insinuating child pornography.
I have coined this term as CPS or child pornography simulation.

are millions across the world who use facebook, sharing many pictures, thoughts and opinions and other personal & sensitive information.
But is all that you share protected? Well, it is time for you to re-think now. Facebook has introduced a new header called private under
which it ensures that all the personal information you have shared is protected. But the reality is quite different. A British software
engineer has come up with a startling development. He came across a security loophole in facebook that potentially makes every user’s
information available easily to anyone, just by using the phone number uploaded by him or her. Cyber criminals misuse the data procured
from facebook. So today we are here to discuss the big question-Is it really safe to put up your number on facebook?

IS AN INEFFICIENT GOVERNMENT CONSIDERED CORRUPT?
To a civilian, it's not about a political party but about the effectiveness of the "serving" government. Regrettably, in India an
admirable statesman could morph into a questionable politician because of the unwritten corruptive dictum of the "ruling" party.
India has seen almost a dozen former Chief Ministers either prosecuted or convicted for corruption.
This is injustice and injustice is an obstruction of justice according to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)
(UNODC Chapter III Articles 15-24): this act may not be considered as a criminal offence according to domestic legislation, but is
"Quiet Corruption' and is an act against human rights.

20.10.2015 Bengaluru: Over a dozen corporators are staring at a disqualification in Bangalore for not declaring their assets and
liabilities even a month after the election of the new Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Council.
What the law says: According to Section 19 of Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976, every corporator has to file a
declaration of his assets and liabilities with the mayor.Speaking to iamin, Dr Dominic F Dixon of We The People of Bengaluru, filing a
declaration of all assets is the responsibility of all the corporators. "Within 30 days of taking office, every BBMP corporator is required
to file his/her statement of wealth. If they do not do so then they are immediately disqualified - no questions asked. A large number of
our newly elected corporators simply have not filed their assets and the Mayor has acknowledged that during our meeting. No court
can help such defaulters as the law is absolute and not ambigious,'' Dr Dixon said.
23.09.2015: In the wake of serial deaths on the streets of
Bengaluru due to the negligence of the civic body, the BBMP, a
forum was formed to combat this issue. We have filed cases
against the BBMP Commissioner, the Mayor and other ministers
who are culpable for the deaths of innocent civilians. The BBMP
have not followed the Indian Roads Congress norms in laying of
the roads or in filling pot holes. A techie lost her life while riding
pillion and her husband was booked for rash driving when the
actual culprits are the BBMP officials.
The other dignitaries were, Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, M Chandrasekhar, IPS, Bansy Kalappa, Special Correspondent, News 9
and Kannada actress Subha Punja.
A BRIEF SCRIPT OF MY TALK:
(a) Colonialism has to do with the feeling of inferiority. (b) DISCRIMINATION: Why is it that scantily clad girls performing cabaret dances
to item numbers are banned from performing in dance bars on Brigade road and all over the country; while it is legitimate for Sunny Leone
to dance half naked on the silver screen? This is because of our "colonial mentality" that we have inherited. When these girls were
interviewed, they said that they do it because of their agonizing poverty and to support an ailing parent. But Indians would glorify actresses
performing lustful item numbers for gain. (c) My story… I was born "black" into an Anglo Indian family, hence stereotyped. My defense
was "God made the little children, God made them in the day. God made the little negros, God made them in the night. God made them in
a hurry and forgot to make them white smile." (d) That many modern day women are so inferior, that they need to present themselves as
sex objects on the silver screen for men to gape and grope! (e) Many of our men are so inferior, that we prefer to buy a fake Rolex watch
rather than buy a genuine Titan. (f) We would rather support a white skinned man rather than an innocent tanned skinned man. (g) We
would never argue the price of a bottle of coke but we would argue the price of a tender coconut. (h) Our girls would rather wear a fake
Armani or Prada purse rather than wearing a genuine Indian product. (i) I’ve seen Indians in the West change their names from Raj to
Roger. Hi my name is Roger…(j) An American would never change their accent to that of an Indian, but you would find an Indian fake an
American accent to an American, to please him to "fit it" but would refuse the learn and speak the local language of an Indian state that
they have relocated to. (k)-- Language stereotypes: every language has a cultural personality and that language is intrinsic and cannot be
stereotyped or undermined. When a language is stereotyped, you discredit that culture, and when you discredit a culture, you discredit a
nation…. Don’t discredit your own nation. (l) An American would never take a conference call from their Indian counterpart after 6pm. But
an "Indian corporate slave" would take a call form an America at midnight. (m) Indians are sometimes like a man that fled from a lion only
to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him. The enemy lies within, we
are our own enemies! (n) It amazes me when an Indian goes to America for "Community Development" as if India is over developed. (o) We
some how seem to have lost our indigenous heritage.(p) Indians mimic our colonial visitors that were in power and as they began to
associate that power and success with the foreigners' ways. This eventually led to the foreigners' ways being regarded as the better way
and being held in a higher esteem than previous indigenous ways. This is why we ill treat our subordinates and our domestic help,
because we were first I'll treated. This is why the concept "dignity of labour" does not exist in India. (q) Colonialism has taught us that
white is beautiful and every colour otherwise is intrinsically ugly.

India’s ugly face of racism & stereotyping
An African female student was beaten, stripped and her car burnt, because an African from
another country, not connected to her, had met with an accident and killed a Bengalurean.
But what definition is Bengaluru a cosmopolitan city anymore? Racial attacks are
increasingly being orchestrated by radicalized localities, inspired by cast bank, communal
politicians. To attack one African for the act of another African is attacking a race.
It's like a foreigner attacking an Indian for a crime committed by a Pakistani because we
have similar racial features!
