This term, word, thug is common in the United States of America. Thug? Thug is parallel in traditional, dominant culture of a word that means criminal, violence is quite normal. The word thug originated in the country of India as a rebellious religious cult. This religion was inspired by the resentment of the occupation of India by the presence of Great Britain. The transition from a cult of sorts came awkwardly in a nation struggle to have its own independence. I doubt seriously if those who call anyone a thug knows how this concept, word was about a religion in India. Ironically, there was a deity named The Goddess Kali. In the popular HBO cable show The Game of Thrones had the religion of the Thugs and its Goddess Kali in its story. The transition, transformation of Thug, Thugee into a label for street crime, intimidation and serious violence remains mysterious.

The transformation from India’s organized crime of assassins and robbers is awkwardly considered as simply an old religion. The transition into a badge of honor in America leaves an unanswered question. Still, today, thug still is a label for deviance, criminal, and outlaw behavior in America and elsewhere in the world. A thug is not considered anything but a criminal for most in mainstream society. ”Today it is confusing to have young thugs on the internet showing off their crime as if they have done something great, good? In the thug world they are a separate from our rules…” says Police Chief Anthony Holt, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan.

There is a quote from Aristotle “Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.” It is notable that Thug philosophical point of contention arose from the social protest of the. British occupation of their native land. This brings little to the interpretations of historical policies in the world arena. Should consideration be given to government protest especially in authoritarian regimes, governments and perhaps in democratic expressions? I ask this question as we look at the inception, social protest, civil disobedience around the globe. Roman Empire, Great Britain and its relationship as the Mother Country and the colonial protest and eventually armed rebellion, insurrection leading to the independent nation of America. Thugs weaponized their protest as underdogs in the British rule as subjects of the rule of its colonized subjects. Such policies are colored throughout world history. The large dominant culture with both military and economic power more or less held world communities hostage? There is undoubtably this is a complex, complicated challenge throughout history around the world.

Present times and the first twenty years into the new millennium have been rather violent with major conflict in the Middle East, Turkey, China, Philippines and North Korea. The names, political conflict varies, yet, those who identified with the Thugs in India are in theory sympathizers perhaps? In the United States there has been a major challenges with the different groups of citizens. The external and internal realities of political philosophy is even more conflicted when religion, caste systems, gender, sexuality and environmental, ecological variables are considered as relevant causes of concern? While the original Thug movement was suppressed by the British in the 1830s. Today it is notable that one interpretation of this term, word thug is criminal. The Third city embraces thug within the context of a honorable denizenship. A thug defies authority, believes in self rule and rebukes rule of law. The deep distrust of government is shared by many, some who are militias and others declare street law…this is the conversation to consider as America wrestles with American democracy.
