Sort of like a modern day Ghanddi.

: As tehse examples show, laws in India, or at leats in much of teh countrie, favor the workers and mass political action, while the laws in America do not. this demonstares that there is p[lenty fo possiblilty for social change to come about through the parliamnetary system.

ROTFL!! Besides the use of terms from a discredited ideology (bougois, however it's spelled) you supply us with 'proof' that workers in America have no legal protections. Part of the reason that the population in India is 'happy' with their lot may be that only 52% are literate. I guess that's just as well. If they knew that the per capita income of India is a whopping $1,491 per year vs. $27,336 in the States, you might have some pissed off Hindus on your hands.
I don't know, maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I would've thought that a person who was priviledged enough to be raised and educated in the States would want to share the benefits of that system with his less fortunate breathern by returning to that country and agitating for change. Sort of like a modern day Ghanddi. Instead though, it seems that bringing American living standards lower is your goal.
Good luck.
Bourgeois=middle class?
