Pakistan has two types of
people. First, those who have Fallacy of Insignificance and the second are those
who have Fallacy of Significance. First type deals with those who have finalized
about themselves that they can’t perform any extra-ordinary work and take
themselves as ordinary and never try to achieve for what they deserve for or
what potential they have. On the other hand, second type deals with the people
who think that they are the extra-ordinary creatures and they can change the
world according to their thoughts. Despite having common minds and conservative
thoughts, they believe to be big, famous and gifted people of the world.
When people dealing with the Fallacy of Insignificance find people dealing with
the Fallacy of Significance achieving higher positions, it tempts them to hate,
blame and conspire against the other ones with the intentions that they contain
more qualities and knowledge than them. The second type of people achieve
greater than the first one because the first ones never try to achieve something
and the second ones keep on trying to accomplish whether they deserve or not.
The second type of people can be subdivided into three categories:
a) The people who think that they are the most important personalities around
the world. They are the talks of the towns, country rulers try to please them
and everyone sings their songs.
b) The people who don’t place them among the important people of the world. But,
they claim as the best in their respective fields. They believe that no other
person can defeat them in their field and only a stupid person can deny their
c) The people who think themselves great for no reasons. They claim to be the
great in society and when the society doesn’t accept their greatness, they
become rivals of the society. We can easily find these types of people among our
We can find plenty of examples of Fallacy of Significance in our country. A
dictator or prime minister is a perfect example of it. A dictator thinks that
the country cannot be run if he dies or retires. He thinks that he is the only
person in the world who can move the country in positive direction, and without
him, country will not develop. This Fallacy of Significance tempts him not to
leave the reign until people drag him away from it.
We have some politicians as well who are the patients of the Fallacy of
Significance and who think that if they had not come to guide the nation, the
nation would have been ruined. They tend to become good leaders despite not
having any good qualities of leadership in them. There has always been dispute
in what they say and they actually do.
I pray that may ALLAH keep us away from these patients of Fallacy of
Significance and I pray also for the cure of the patients of Fallacy of
Insignificance that they should realize their significance and should use them
in favor of Pakistan.
